Where: A virtual meeting via Zoom (note that the link will be provided closer to the date)
Each year, the Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) hosts an Annual General Meeting (AGM) so that members can receive a report on our activities, review our financial statements, elect board members, and appoint our auditors. This year there are no in-person meeting locations. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting by zoom or conference call.
We will be conducting the election for the Board of Directors online from September 3rd to September 16th, 2020. Election results will be presented at the AGM. All members will receive a link via email to vote online using the ElectionBuddy platform. This method will allow for accessible and transparent voting. We are excited to have some super talented and diverse candidates for the Board this year!
Some SCCF Board of Directors business, including approval of past minutes and appointing auditors will be conducted during the AGM. If you are unable to attend the AGM itself on Saturday, Sept. 19th you may submit a proxy. Your proxy must be received by Sept. 17, at our office by mail to PO Box 2007 STN B Ottawa ON K1P 5W3 or by email (scanned or re-saved as a pdf file) to email@example.com. If you have any difficulties viewing or downloading the form, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to send in a proxy if you can't attend so that we can ensure we have a quorum to conduct the meeting's business. We appreciate your effort to do so. You can appoint anyone you know who will be attending as your proxy (they do not have to be a member themselves.)
Your membership allows you to participate in the Board election, to vote at the meeting, or to appoint a proxy to virtually attend in your place.
If you are not a member and would like to participate in the AGM by Zoom or conference call, please email us at email@example.com for further details.
If your membership has expired, I invite you to take this opportunity to renew your membership today. The planet needs you now more than ever before.
Thank you for your important commitment to our work!
