April Meeting: AGM, IPv6 talk, Presentation issues and maybe more

Date: April 7, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room T303

This is our AGM and election of board members. At this point, we have enough candidates for an election, however we still have to go through the announcement of the slate to the membership and accept any nominations from the floor. Further details follow.

Following the AGM, we will have a short talk on IPv6 from Alex and a talk on presentation frustrations from Scott. There may be an additional talk on archive media from John.

Pre-meeting:

There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 17:30 to 18:30 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.

After Meeting Social:

After the meeting, there will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.

GPG Keysigning:

After the main talk and possibly the BoF, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.

AGM

Speaker: Aaron Wilcox
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:

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

We could use an additional candidate, as four is the minimum number. 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
  • A motion to the general membership to dissolve the corporation as described in the bylaws and reform as an informal group
  • Board elections if necessary
