Team Lethbridge

Team Lethbridge is a group of community leaders interested in raising awareness of how the city of Lethbridge contributes to the province and how we can work with our government representatives to support long-term success for Alberta.

As individual organizations and as a group, we believe Lethbridge has a lot to offer the province, the country and the world. Our vision and commitment is to foster a community, province and nation that is not only ready to seize the opportunities of today but also the possibilities of tommorow.

Visits to Edmonton in October 2008, November 2010 and October 2012 were a success in terms of building relationships and understanding. Our next visit takes place November 24 - 26, 2015.
