Looking to get Involved with the BGOS Greens?

The BGOS Greens will be hosting their AGM on March 12, 2020, at 6:00 PM.

The Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Greens will be hosting their Annual General Meeting on March 12, 2020, at 6:00 PM.

The local Green Party associations give us a concrete foundation in our community and will give future Green Party candidates a much-needed support group. It also ensures continuation between campaigns and creates a Green Party presence in our area year-round.

Because the two riding associations (the GPC Greens and the GPO Greens) within Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Greens work together, there are roles specific to either the GPC or the GPO, as well as executive roles (and, for that matter, volunteer roles) that are shared across the two organizations.
