Interested members may self-nominate via email using their registered member email address between October 29 and November 15, 2019. Each individual should include a brief bio and their activity level within the Alberta Browncoats Society since joining.
The board may contain up to 7 members. In order to continue to exist as a registered not-for-profit society in Alberta, we do require a minimum of 5 board members.
Potential board members must:
Be 18 years of age or older.

Please note: This election is for general board members. Executive positions (Chair, Vice-Chair and Secretary/Treasurer) on the board are determined by the elected board members at a future board meeting.
All members, 18 years of age or older, in good standing as of January 1, 2019 will be eligible to put their name forward for a position on the board of directors.
A member is elected to the Board of Directors when they put their name forward for nomination and receive sufficient votes on the ballot from the general membership in an election vote held during the AGM . In the case of a tie, a secondary vote may be held until a minimum of 6 positions on the Board of Directors are filled.

Eligible in-absentia voters should indicate which agenda item they are voting on (use agenda item number), along with their choices, in the body of their message. The meeting agenda and board member will be posted to the website on November 16, 2019.

You should be able to see Serenity once you walk through the doors..
You bring your wallets and we’ll bring a gorgeous Lego Serenity designed and built by Don Verrier, a new game to play, and lots of shiny goodies to spend your credits on.
As in previous years, we’ll accept payment in cashy monies, credit and debit and all proceeds from funds raised at the booth this year will be donated to Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS.org) and the Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre (e4c Alberta).
