This year, the Annual General Meeting will take place online!
Who could have predicted a year like this? Our first-ever online Annual General Meeting (AGM) will give us the opportunity to gather and take stock of the impact that the 2019-2020 year has had on the dance community.
Together, we will look back on this exceptional year, marked by much thoughtful reflection. The RQD team will report on the progress that has been made on key files, highlighting the complex issues brought to the fore by the pandemic. As a member, this is a key opportunity for you to get informed, ask questions, and make your voice heard.
Clear your agenda for the afternoon of October 20, 2020 so that you can take part in this vitally important meeting for the Quebec dance community!
There are several positions available on our board of directors: a great opportunity to take part in the ever-present dynamism that drives the actions of the RQD and to get engaged in efforts to improve our professional working conditions. Inclusion and complementary competencies will be top of mind as we elect new members to join the board, which will guide the dance community in its recovery from the pandemic. Getting involved is absolutely crucial. If you are thinking about putting yourself forward as a candidate, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss it.
In the weeks following the AGM, the RQD plans to hold workshops with a focus on its recovery plan after it wraps up the vast series of consultations that have been ongoing since the summer. Take part in these exchanges and reflections and help shape the future of the dance sector.
This year more than ever before, the AGM is not to be missed—and that goes for all dance professionals. Each one of you is essential to our community. Thanks to our solidarity membership rates, we hope even more of you will be able to join our organization and add your voices to the RQD’s collective efforts.

Why become a member of the RQD board of directors?
Co-president Lük Fleury gives you a one-minute explanation.
Five (5) posts are up for election on the RQD board of directors: three (3) in the corporate member category and two (2) in the individual member category.
We want to make sure our board is balanced from a diversity and generational standpoint, as well as ensure that we have the management and strategy skills needed to help the sector get back on track. There’s a lot of work to do, especially with the current crisis and with a relaunch plan still to be drawn up; determining what direction the organization will take and what its priorities should be will also be top of mind as we work towards the common good of the dance community.
