The Congrès mondial acadien 2019 recently launched a guide for anyone interested in organizing a family reunion during the event, which will be held between Aug. 10 and 24, 2019, in Prince Edward Island and southeast New Brunswick.
The Guide to Planning Your Family Reunion offers advice to help families shape their thinking and plan their reunion.
According to Claudette Thériault, chairwoman of the Congrès mondial acadien 2019, “the guide will be a very useful tool for those who are interested in organizing a family reunion, but don’t really know where to start. The holiday season is a great time to reach out to family members and discuss the possibilities.”
Family reunions are often considered to be the heart of the Congrès mondial acadien. All interested families are invited to register and can consult the guide for advice on how to do so. The guide also offers information on funding and budget planning, the governance of the organizing committees, recruitment and promotion strategies, etc.
The family reunion co-ordinator, Yvette Bourque, can also assist interested families. She can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 506-859-2019.
The Guide to Planning Your Family Reunion is available on the CMA 2019 website at https://cma2019.ca/en/program/families.
