2019 Annual General Meeting

March 31, 2019

Dear Member:

This is to inform you that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the BC Nautical Residents Association will take place Sunday, April 14th, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. We are trying something different for this year’s AGM, given that our membership is scattered along the BC coast. We’re going to hold our meeting online as well as in person!

We ask you to please RSVP by Saturday, April 6th, and indicate whether you will attend in person or online. Once we know how many members will attend in person, we’ll have the room set up accordingly.

Once we know how many members plan to attend online, we will set up the appropriate online platform. You’ll be notified well in advance of the AGM regarding how to log in to the meeting.

If you opt to attend in person, the meeting will be at the Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt (Naden), Nelles Block conference room. You’ll need to show government-issued photo ID (passport, driver’s licence, health card) at the gate. Nelles is the white apartment block at the top of the hill as you enter the base.

A new Board of Directors (5 – 7 members) will be elected at the AGM. If you are interested in serving, please be prepared to self-nominate at the meeting. All board candidates will be asked to briefly introduce yourself, where you’re from, and why you’re interested in running for the BCNR Board of Directors.

Attached are PDF and Word copies of the agenda for the meeting, the minutes of the 2017 AGM, and the proxy form. If you don’t have Adobe Reader, here is a link to a free version – just follow the prompts: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html. If you are unable to attend at all, please complete, scan, and return your proxy form to me at donna_sassaman@bcnr.org. Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing you at the BCNR online-and-in-person AGM!
