Annual General Meeting

 

The Annual General Meeting is an opportunity for all registered delegates of the Directors' Forum to exercise their democratic rights to vote on issues that are presented during the business meeting, as well as to elect the members of the Executive Committee. Every paying participant has the right to vote at the AGM, even if there is more than one delegate from the same credit union or caisse populaire. There is no additional cost to attend the AGM and delegates are automatically able to participate when registered for the Forum. 

The AGM usually opens the annual conference and includes the:

  • Chair's welcome and report
  • Treasurer's report of the financial statements from the previous year
  • Election to the Executive Committee
  • In Memoriam (to honour those directors who have passed on since the previous AGM)
  • Long Term Service Awards ceremony (to recognize long-serving Directors)
  • New or Arising Business

The 2020 AGM will take place virtually, on Friday, October 16. It will be a shorter AGM and will be followed by one governance session in lieu of a conference. Registration is required and will be available shortly.

This year's AGM will include an election to the Executive Committee, as two of the Directors' terms are up: Anthony Piscitelli of Your Neighbourhood Credit Union (DF Chair) and Kathy Stewart of Frontline Credit Union (DF Treasurer). Both individuals have confirmed their intention to run for re-election. If you are interested in running for the Executive, submit your nomination form by Friday, September 18, 2020.

This year's AGM will not include a formal Long-Term Service Awards ceremony. However, we will acknowledge recipients and mail an award to those Directors who meet the eligibility criteria, and who are retiring prior to our next AGM in 2021. For more information, click here.

Stay tuned for more information about the AGM in the coming months!
