2017 AGM

Speaker: Scott Murphy

This is our AGM and election of board members.

We will have our election of officers at the meeting. As of this point, we have the following people on the slate:

  • Bruce Davis
  • Ian Gorman
  • Kelly Kendrick
  • Scott Murphy
  • John Nash

Based on the current rules regarding the board, four is the minimum, six is the maximum. We prefer to have more than the minimum in case of circumstances requiring an existing member to step down.

In addition, according to the bylaws of the non-profit corporation, we require at least 20 people to be present, either in person or via proxy. We will have a sign-up sheet for the election and will require all present to sign in order to prove the election was held in compliance with the bylaws.

Proxies can be registered by sending an email to the board email address (board dash members at oclug.on.ca) prior to 17:00 on Wednesday, April 6th so that we have a record prior to the election.

The format will be:

  • Short announcement from the President
  • Short financial update from the Treasurer
  • Board elections if necessary
