Please RSVP at email@example.com Background: Results of two major workshops, held in 2012,concluded that scientifically the A2A initiative is essential to healthy native wildlife populations and human well-being in the years to come, and that in order to fulfill its mandate, the organization needed to broaden its focus. Acting on the advice of the proceedings of these two workshops, an Interim Board was formed, and by it, a number of committees. They will be recommending changes for us to consider at the AGM.
