Nominations, Voting and More
In the next few weeks, we will be sending out more detailed information regarding Director nominations, member voting, and polling for our Wheeler of the Year and Volunteer of the Year awards.
Director Nominations - Our bylaws currently allow for director nominations to be taken from the floor on the day of the AGM, however, our Board of Directors strongly recommends those who may be interested in running contact
email@example.com so that candidates will have the opportunity for their bios to be distributed officially, along with other elections information leading up to the day. Interested candidates may also be interested in learning more about the positions they are running for and by reaching out to the email above, those requests can be accommodated. More information including full Director descriptions will be available when the Association opens the call for nominations.
Member Voting – Our current Board of Directors is working hard to implement electronic voting in time for this year’s AGM so that a more Provincial representation is presented at the AGM and reflected in Association business. This, of course, is a large logistical transition from the current in-person (and proxy) voting system that the Association has been used to. Information on how to vote and when will be emailed out once everything is finalized. In the meantime, we encourage members to ensure their memberships are in good standing (paid up to at least March 21st in order to be eligible to vote) and their online profiles are updated.
Wheeler of the Year/ Volunteer of the Year – With the move to online voting, we've made the decision to defer the Wheeler of the Year and Volunteer of the Year awards to a later date, to be presented at our summer Show & Shine.
We also remind all Clubs to renew their memberships for 2020, in time for the AGM on March 21st.
