Charities’ annual general meetings don’t have a reputation for being super exciting, but you won’t want to miss this one! GAC’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 7 pm at Silence Sounds, 46 Essex St, on Wednesday May 17. Yes, we’ll vote on a few motions, welcome new Board members, share some notes on our 2016 year, and thank some VIPs. Oh, and we’ll present our new strategic plan for 2017-2019 (kind of important!). But the business portion of the meeting will be wrapped up lickety-split, and followed by an open mic session. Come and share the great things you or your organization have been up to! We’ll ask you at the door if you have anything to share, and you’ll have a three-minute limit when you’re called up. Don’t forget to bring your business cards or brochures to share too.
Everyone is welcome to attend, share, and network. However, GAC members must be current (paid up, that is) prior to May 17 in order to vote. Not sure if you’re current? If you get an AGM invitation from us in the mail around May 8, and there’s a renewal form in it, please send it back immediately (or – better yet! – renew online). If you don’t get an AGM invitation from us in the mail, you have not been a current member in the recent past. There are benefits to joining the 300(ish) voices of GAC, and not just that you get to vote at the AGM. If waiting around the mailbox sounds like a drag, just give us a call at 519-836-3280 or shoot us an email at [email protected]. We love to hear from all our members – whether current, lapsed, or wannabe.
Whatever your member or non-member status, we hope to see you on May 17 at Silence. There’s no charge to attend, but please RSVP online so we know how many people to expect.
