What is an Annual General Meeting?
An annual general meeting is where an association formally reports to it’s membership regarding the business conducted during the year, votes on a board of directors and the passing of any pending resolutions.
What happens at the NSMBA Annual General Meeting?
The NSMBA will be presenting to the membership our accomplishments during the past year and our vision for 2018. There will also be a vote to determine the 2018 board of directors.
This year, we’ll be keeping out financial and program updates short to leave more time for questions from the community and the screening of a new and exclusive NSMBA short film! We’ll also have free snacks, free drinks and door prizes!
The membership will also be voting for new directors in 2019 so applicants will be giving a short 3 minute speech before voting commences. Please see below for how to apply to become a director and review the current candidates.
The meeting is open to the public but only current members will be eligible to vote on the board of directors and the passing of any pending resolutions.
