Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Board Member Elections

Please join us on at 1 PM on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Eastwood Community League Hall (11803 86 St NW, Edmonton). We will be meeting in the upstairs boardroom. Parking is available.

A meeting agenda will be posted on this website in the coming weeks. We are accepting submissions to the meeting agenda until November 15, 2019.

Among other agenda items, we will be selecting the 2020 Board of Directors at the AGM. 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.
  • Be a 2019 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 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.

Registered members, as indicated in our member database, who are unable to attend may record their vote on any agenda item via email using their registered member email address between November 25-29, 2019. 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.
