AANM AGM and Feature Speaker


When: October 22nd 6pm-8pm

Where: Online Via Zoom, contact Jenel Shaw at to receive the link for the event and the AGM documents.

Join AANM for its Annual General Meeting where we will be saying goodbye to our long time Chair of the Board Susan Lamberd, and hello to our incoming Chair of the Board Diane Driedger. We will also have published author Frances Mae Sinclair-Kaspick as our featured speaker! Thank you to Assiniboine Credit Union for sponsoring Frances talk.

Frances Mae Sinclair-Kaspick, an Indigenous woman of personal strength and fierce determination, shares her remarkable journey to a self-fulfilling, independent life. She grew up in inner city Winnipeg, facing the disadvantages inherent in physical disabilities from birth, poverty, and economic and cultural barriers. Her story is also about the advantages of having a large, loving family and the maternal figure of her Cree grandmother who raised her with unfaltering support and insistence that Frances not be “a quitter.” Her story is one of profound inspiration, not just for other who face the challenges of physical disabilities but also for all of us who, through Frances’ personal account, can witness and learn from an indomitable human spirit.
