The Electoral District Association
District 12 has an Electoral District Association (EDA), which is part of the Green Party structure that carries out grassroots engagements with the community, during an election period helps prepare and carry out the district candidate's election campaign. The EDA is overseen by a Coordinating Team, the members of which were elected by District 12 members at our Annual Meeting in June 2020; currently this team consists of:
- Barbara Dylla (Chair)
- Norman Finlayson (Interim Financial Coordinator)
- Heather Irving (Communications Coordinator)
- Peter Rukavina (Data Coordinator).
The EDA's next Annual General Meeting will be held in the spring of 2021.
If you are a member of the Green Party of PEI and live in District 12, you are a member of the D12 EDA! We'd love to hear from and involve you in what happens here.
