The AGM will still take place on Sunday April 26th at 6:00 p.m. in the Alice MacKay Room at the Central Library, where you may meet your 2015/2016 executive!

The following is a tentative agenda for the AGM:

  • food arrives at 5:30
  • the meeting starts with a brief 20 minute guest speaker on the living wage for families campaign, since many of our members don’t make the living wage for Vancouver calculated to be $20.10 an hour.
  • election by acclamation report and relevant constitutional changes review
  • new Exec member swearing in ceremony (if new members present)
  • President’s Report followed by Q&A
  • Secretary-Treasurer Report and money motions
  • other committee reports if committee chairs present followed by Q&A if necessary
  • Spectacular prize draws and giveaways.
  • the meeting is expected to last no more than 2 hours
