Join us for our first community-wide AGM - Sept 11, 2021 via Zoom
Hey GRR pals!
We’re so excited to be inviting everyone to our first community-wide AGM taking place on September 11th, 2021 at 2 pm via Zoom.
You might be wondering…why haven’t we had an AGM before?
Well, that’s because up until (hopefully) the 11th, our legal board and membership were just Amanda and Dani, our two founders. But we’re looking at changing that up so that we can have more and more amazing folks involved in GRR.
The legal board and our working committee have been hard at work developing a new Constitution and set of Articles that will provide ample opportunity for previous campers, volunteers, parents and GRR supporters to get involved and become members easier.
To participate in the AGM
In order to participate during the AGM (i.e. if you want to vote or run for our board), you’ll have to register at least 24 hours ahead of time. To register, you can sign up through Zoom. (If you’re wondering why it’s because we need time to legally admit you as a member before you can vote.) Can’t hit that 24-hour deadline? All good, we’d still love to have you at the AGM, but you won’t be able to vote or run for the board. Next time though!
Joining the board
If you’re really stoked on the possibility of running for our new board, that’s fab! We’re looking for between 5-10 new folks to take on the big job of leading the organization, and we’d love to hear about your interest. You can fill out this Board Interest Google Form ahead of time, or heck, you can even put your name forward right during the meeting if you’re full of nerves!
Other AGM details
We’ll be doing a handful of things during this AGM, most of which are just required by law under the Saskatchewan Non-Profit Corporation Act, but one of those things is also reviewing the Constitution & Articles we’re proposing. Make sure to check those out. Have any changes you’d like to suggest? You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can just bring them to the meeting and we can talk about them as a whole membership.
Eek, we’re so stoked and we can’t wait to see you (virtually!) as we keep GRRowing!
