It’s that time of year again – when we look back on what we’ve been up to over the past year, when we kick off a summer full of awesome events, and when we make important decisions about the future of Head & Hands. That’s right, it’s time for the Annual General Meeting!
This year’s AGM will take place on Wednesday, June 12 from 7 – 9pm at St. Raymond’s Community Centre. A few important things happen at an AGM: staff members present all the great stuff that has gone on over the past year, organization management is discussed (staffing, finances, etc.), board candidates present themselves, and members vote on a new Board of Directors and by-law changes.
This year, something has changed – you might be a member, and members can (and should!) attend the AGM and cast their votes. Clients, volunteers, and donors are all considered members now – if you’ve accessed a service, volunteered your time, or donated money in the past year, you are a member. To attend the AGM, we need to make sure that you’re on the list of members.
To declare your membership:
- If you were a donor in the past year, you’re already listed as a member. Just show up!
- If you’ve been a client or volunteer this year, get in touch with the Coordinator of the Head & Hands program you access or volunteered for, by sending an email (listed here: http://headandhands.ca/about-us/staff-board/) or talking to the Coordinator themselves.
In classic Head & Hands style, this year’s AGM will be a dynamic and entertaining show – not to mention there will be delicious free food served, and childcare will be provided. It’s going to be a party, and you’re invited!
