The OSA Annual General Meeting
The Ontario Soccer Association convenes its Annual General Meeting in April of each year. The AGM is a meeting of the Member organizations which has occurred in every year since 1901 except for some some of the war years when The Association suspended its operations. The AGM is held in various communities and in recent years, it has been held in Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Markham and Cambridge.
The 2012 Annual General Meeting is being held on Sunday, April 29 at the Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel & Suites, 5875 Airport Road, Mississauga, and will begin at 9:00 a.m., with registration at 8:00 a.m.
