The Group Executive intends to conduct the normal requirements of our AGM in this hybrid environment including elections for vacant positions on the Group’s Executive; Article 7.3 of our Constitution requires a minimum notice of four (4) weeks for elections. As indicated in Article 6.2 of our Group’s Constitution, elections will be conducted for the positions: Vice President; Treasurer; and two (2) Members at Large.
I would encourage you to consider nominating a colleague, or perhaps yourself, to one of these four positions to form a strong and complete Group Executive to help guide our Group and its Membership. The Election Committee for this year’s elections will be Katy Schram (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Eric Watters (email@example.com). To nominate someone or submit your nomination, please fill out the Nomination Form found on the Grooup's website.
All voting for the upcoming vacant positions on the Group Executive will be conducted during the AGM using the Zoom platform as well as in-person ballots.
We look forward to your participation at the AGM. Should you have any questions or need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Group Executive.
