TUESDAY, April 10, 2018 will be this year’s SEA Annual General Meeting (AGM), formally starting at 7:00 pm, Edmonton Clinic Health Academy at the U of A, Room ECHA 1-498. We will be there from 6:30pm onwards for anyone that requires a membership or needs to renew. Please note this is the SECOND Tuesday of the month, one week later than we usually meet.
Anyone interested is invited to attend; however, only paying members will be permitted to vote in the general election or on any other business.
If you are at all interested in running for the Board, please take a look at our explanation of the roles and responsibilities for each position, as well as some FAQs about joining the Board. This year all Executive positions and four Director positions will be voted on. Please bear in mind in order to run for President you have to have served on the board for at least one year (throughout the history of the group), so if you intend on running for this position in the future it is worth thinking about joining the board. In order to run for Treasurer you must have been a member in good standing for at least a year. You can email us to let us know that you’d like to run for a Board position (even if you will not be present at the meeting), ask another member to nominate you at the appropriate point during the meeting, or you may also self-nominate at the meeting.
If you would like to run for any of the board positions we also encourage you to send in your ”campaign”…including goals for the group and what skills you feel you will bring to the table. We will feature them on the website and facebook page prior to the AGM so people can make informed decisions regarding who they want to vote for.
If you would like to see 2017 BYLAWS, they can be found on the website, under “About”.
If you would like to propose changes for consideration at the AGM, they must be sent to the Board for distribution to the rest of the membership in advance of the meeting. Please try to have those into us before April 2nd, one week before the meeting.
We hope to have a large turnout as we will also be discussing the direction of the SEA, what types of events you are interested in and fundraising ideas. As per usual we will head to the pub afterwards for sustenance. See you there!
