2019 AGM

2019 AGM

Thank you to everyone who participated at the AGM this year. We are excited to announce that Janice Chan and Michael Wing were elected to the board. You can read the official minutes from the meeting here.


The new year begins a new cycle in our governance as a community. We have an incredible board that is elected by the members of the community to represent and guide us but part of the new year is preparing for our annual general meeting which has been scheduled for Wednesday March 13th.

When we gather that evening we will present the financial reports and the budget for the coming year and we will also be electing some new people to represent us on the board.

The AGM is open to anyone from the community, all are welcome to come and participate in the discussions. However, voting on decisions and leadership is reserved for members.

If you’re not a member and would like to be, we have two membership classes coming up before the AGM. They happen on the last Sunday of every month and you can sign up for a class online.


MEMBERSHIP ACTIVATION

This is something that members need to do every year and is part of how we ensure our membership roll is kept up to date annually. If you are a member then all you need to do is sign beside your name on the membership list, which will be on the connection centre desk every Sunday until the AGM, or simply fill out this handy form.


Leadership Team Nominations

Our nomination committee is appointed by the board and has representation from staff, board and community. This committee will receive nominations, vet nominees, and interview candidates for the position(s) based on the specific needs of the board in any given year. The nomination Committee is tasked with ensuring that the board:

c. has a member with appropriate financial background to the scale of the organization
d. has a member with appropriate board experience
e. has a member with relevant charity/non-profit experience where possible
f. has a member with HR experience where possible
