Annual General Meeting
The RESULTS Canada Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. EST via conference call. The call will last approximately 1 hour, and we will be joined by our guest speaker Sam Daly-Harris, founder of RESULTS.
Sam Daley-Harris founded the first RESULTS in the United States in 1980, and is the author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government, about which President Jimmy Carter said, “[Daley-Harris] provides a road map for global involvement in planning a better future.” Sam received The Temple Award for Creative Altruism from the Institute of Noetic Sciences (1995), the Caring Award from the Caring Institute (1997), the Innovator Award from the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University (2003), the Elliott Black Award from the American Ethical Union (2003), and the Susan M. Davis Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grameen Foundation (2007). In 2010, Ashoka founder Bill Drayton wrote, “Sam Daley-Harris is one of the certified great social entrepreneurs of the last decades.” We are honored to have Sam joining us for this year’s AGM, and on the 35th anniversary of the founding of RESULTS.
