Registration & Timing

The AGM is open to all members of the Society. A member is anyone who has properly registered and paid to play a league or other program in 2017. Registration will be from 6:15-7:00pm, and you cannot vote without registering. The meeting will start at 7:00pm and run for about 1.5 to 2 hours, followed by the social. Those who cannot attend may vote by proxy: complete a proxy form and give it to a registered member to vote on your behalf (limit of one proxy per member present). 

Board Elections

The Board of Directors is responsible for decisions that can have immediate and long-term impacts on the VUL. Being a director is also a great way to give back to the VUL. Do you know someone who'd make a good Director? Encourage them to run! 

Four positions are up for election in 2017. This year we're looking for those with experience in HR, law, IT, governance, business, or community leadership, but we encourage all VUL members to consider the opportunity. For a summary of what's involved, see the Board FAQ, email the Board via board@vul.ca, or email the E.D. via craig.woods@vul.ca.

Nominations and declarations should be sent to nominations@vul.ca and include the candidate's name, a brief bio or summary of their qualifications (max 300 words), and a picture. Nominations must be received no later than 6:00pm Wednesday November 8. Candidate bios will be posted on the website on Nov 9.

If elected, candidates should plan to attend Vantage Point's Board Fundamentals workshop on Thursday Nov 23, if at all possible. The fee will be covered by the VUL.

New Business

Proposed new business must be submitted to the Board of Directors at least seven days prior to the Annual General Meeting. If you wish to add an item to the agenda, send an email to board@vul.ca no later than 6:00 pm Wed November 8. Notice of any special business must contain sufficient information to permit each member to make an informed decision.
