Description

The AGM (Annual General Meeting) for the Vancouver East EDA of the Green Party of Canada is the most important meeting of the year. This is where we establish the goals for 2018 and vote on the Executive Board. Please join us and make your voice heard.

Agenda

Come prepared for a good time.

  • 6:00 - Doors open for registration, refreshments, and socializing
  • 6:30 - Program starts
  • Brief introduction of members willing to stand for election
  • CEO's 2017 report
  • FA's 2017 report
  • Proposed calendar for 2018 and discussion
  • Election of the new board for 2018
  • 7:15 - Explanation of Tax Credit and Fundraising
  • Green Storming (2 minutes per speaker)
  • More socializing

Are you a member?

Everyone is welcome to attend, but only members in good standing can vote. If you are not a member or your membership has lapsed for at least a year, you must get a Green Party of Canada membership by December 6, 2017. If your membership has lapsed for less than a year, you can renew your membership up until the meeting begins. Become a member (only $10 per year).

Can you serve on the board?

Are you prepared to stand for election? Let us know when you register. Each EDA needs a CEO and a Financial Agent. We are also looking for an Events & Volunteers Chair, a Communications Chair, and a Fundraising Chair. We will round out the board with Directors at Large. The board meets on the second Thursday of each month and you are expected to be able to attend at least 10 of the 12 meetings. It is also important that you can respond to emails generally within 48 hours.

Will you be able to donate?

The AGM is typically where we do the bulk of our fundraising. The first $400 you donate each year gets a 75% tax credit - this means you only invest a net of $100 and the EDA gets to use the full $400. Consider donating to attend Vancouver Eats Dinner with Elizabeth May. This will be an unforgettable evening. Smaller donations are also gratefully accepted!

All types of volunteers are valuable

If your budget doesn't allow you to donate, don't worry; there are many ways you can support your EDA and help raise the profile of the Green Party in Vancouver East.
