Please join us for the Annual General Meeting of the Pride Calgary Planning Committee, on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Telus Convention Centre, Glen Rooms 202/203, on the upper floor of the South Building. Attendance is open to members in good standing, and guests of members. Please RSVP by January 16, 2018 using the link below.
In order to participate through voting at the AGM, you must (a) be a member in good standing, and (b) have requested that your membership include voting rights. This is done simply by emailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. This requirement to request voting rights is because a large number of our members hold a membership in a desire to support the organization financially, but choose not to participate in operational matters. In order to achieve quorum at our AGM, this process has been implemented to differentiate voting and non-voting members in our quorum calculations.
You must be 18 years of age or older to be eligible as a voting member.
All applications to become a board member must be received by the Secretary at least 2 weeks before the AGM (deadline Tuesday, January 9, 6:30pm). Applications are to be made online, and a confirmation email will be sent upon receipt of the application.
The position of President is not up for election at this AGM, as they are in the second year of a 3 year term.
The position of Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and 7 positions of Director at Large are up for election. 3 of the Director at Large positions and the position of Vice President are presently vacant. Note that as per the organization’s bylaws, candidates for the position of Vice President must have served a full one year term on the Board of Directors in the year immediately prior to their nomination.
The agenda for the AGM will be sent to all members who have provided an RSVP in advance of the meeting. If you have an item to add to the agenda, please send it to email@example.com by January 16, 2018.
