IMPORTANT CHANGE: 2020 Annual General Meeting

This is to inform you that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the BC Nautical Residents Association will take place Saturday, April 18th, 1:00 p.mas an online meeting only. The online AGM will satisfy the reporting requirements of the Registrar of Societies, while keeping our members safe from COVID-19. Please note that this meeting is not for general discussion but to complete specific agenda items within a 40-minute timeframe.

We ask you to please RSVP by Saturday, April 4th (via responding to our broadcast email or through our contact form) so that we’ll know how many members to expect. Once we have received your RSVP, I’ll send you the link to the Zoom meeting.

If you haven’t used Zoom before, you’ll need to download the app to your device. I encourage you to take a Zoom tutorial before April 18th.

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. Please note that directors are expected to serve as the eyes and ears of their area, e.g., Gulf Islands, and attend directors’ bi-monthly meetings in-person or online. Please review the Directors Code of Conduct and Ethics to better understand the commitment and responsibility required.

An email has been sent out with PDF and Word copies of the agenda for the meeting, the minutes of the 2019 AGM, and the proxy form.

Again, please RSVP by April 4th, thank you. Looking forward to seeing you at the BCNR online-AGM!
