The Annual General Meeting is an opportunity for all members of the Directors' Forum to exercise their democratic right to vote on issues that are presented during the business meeting, as well as to elect the members of the Board of Directors. Every paid registrant who has paid the $2 membership fee (effective 2021) has the right to vote at the AGM, even if there is more than one delegate from the same credit union or caisse populaire present. There is no additional cost to attend the AGM and members are automatically able to participate when they are officially 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 Board of Directors
  • 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

This year, an election will be held for four seats on the Board:

  • The term for Anthony Piscitelli (Chair) will be up in 2021. Due to not having an AGM in 2020, his seat will be up for election for a 2-year term. Anthony will be running for re-election.
  • The term for Kathy Stewart (Treasurer) will be up in 2021. Due to not having an AGM in 2020, her seat will be up for election for a 2-year term. Kathy will be running for re-election.
  • The term for Tanya Gracie (Vice-chair) will be up in 2021. Her seat will be up for election for a 3-year term. Tanya will be running for re-election.
  • The term for Tim Foster will be up in 2021. His seat will be up for election for a 3-year term. Tim will be stepping down from the Board and is not running for re-election.

The persons who get the most and second most votes during the election will fill and serve the three year terms, and the persons receiving the third and fourth most votes will fill and serve the two year terms (unless people volunteer to take the lesser term).
