The Calgary Ski Club will hold its Annual General Meeting and Social Evening on Thursday, November 22nd 2018, starting at 5:30 pm with supper.
If you have anything you would like to include in the Agenda, please provide that information to our President, Lynn Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 4 weeks before the event.
Also at AGM, all positions on the Council become vacant, providing opportunities for Club members to put their name forward to participate in making the decisions for the Club for the next 12 months.
Those positions include: President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, Social/Member Liaison and several Members at Large.
Our current President, Lynn Bowers, will move to the Past President position effective November 23rd.
Any member in good standing can sit on the Calgary Ski Club Council. Members can certainly nominate themselves; they will just need to get signatures from 3 other members to support their nomination.
The commitment for each of these positions is:
to attend a monthly meeting the second Tuesday of each month
to participate in discussions and decisions to better govern the Club
and to apply their expertise to topics that may require direction.
This is an excellent opportunity to have more input into the day to day running for the ski club – and new ideas are always welcome?
Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for the Agenda for the AGM as well as any bylaw changes that may be happening as well.
if you are interested in serving the Club on its Council, you will find a nominations form here - CSC Nomination Form revised November 2017
We look forward to seeing you all on the 22nd!
