The Vancouver Poetry House Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, July 7, 1pm-4pm, in the fifth-floor board room at 111 West Hastings Street. Everyone is welcome to the AGM but only members will be able to vote. 

Membership to VPH is now FREE! Members can renew their membership by contacting VPH at or by speaking to a Board member. 

Our current Board of Directors were all elected to a two-year term of office on August 12, 2018. They will be continuing on the board for another year. Vancouver Poetry House can have up to 11 people on the Board and we hope to add members to the remaining six positions at the AGM.
