*UPDATED December 21, 2017, to include location details and amend proposed bylaw changes*
AREA's Annual General Meeting will take place at 10am on Friday, January 26, 2018, in Grande Prairie - home to 2018 AREA President, D'Arcy Donald - at the Pomeroy Hotel, 11633 100 Street. Hot breakfast buffet will be served starting at 9am. All members are invited, and we hope you will join us as the AREA Board of Directors:
During the meeting, members will also be asked to vote on two bylaw changes, presented by the AREA Board of Directors. The bylaw changes the AREA Board is presenting to members in 2018 reflect careful consideration and research on non-profit governance, best practices that are meant to improve Board functionality by putting limits around the power of the President.
In preparation for that vote, we have summarized the proposed changes and rationale here.
There will be an opportunity for discussion and questions on each of these changes before a vote is called. Each bylaw change requires the support of at least 75 per cent of all voting members present to be approved.
