Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Board Member Elections
Please join us on at 7pm on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 18166 102 Ave, Edmonton, AB. Parking is available around the back of the building.
A meeting agenda will be posted on this website in the coming weeks. We are accepting submissions to the meeting agenda until Nov 6, 2015.
Among other agenda items, we will be selecting the 2015 Board of Directors at the AGM. Interested members may self-nominate via email using their registered member email address between October 15 and November 8, 2013. 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.
- Be a 2015 general member in good standing.
- Consent to having their name and address appear in public Government of Alberta documents (Corporate Registry Database) and on our website
- Attend 4-6 Board meetings in addition to any general meetings.
- Actively participate in a minimum of one committee or extra duty.
- Commit to and complete a minimum of 24 volunteer hours with ABS.
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 November 20, 2015 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.
Registered members who live in Edmonton and surrounding area must be present to vote at the AGM.
Registered members who do not live within 100 kms of Edmonton, as indicated in our member database, may record their vote on any agenda item via email using their registered member email address between November 16 – 20, 2015. 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
