Everyone is invited to attend this meeting. Only members in good standing can vote on motions, or for the election of members to the Board of Directors. Members in good standing are those who have paid their annual membership ($25) for the 2020-2021 year, and programmers with lapsed memberships who currently have a payment plan in place. You can become a member, or renew a lapsed membership at https://radiowaterloo.ca/join and pay by credit card.
Voting on motions at the AGM will be by show of hands on video, typing “Yea” or “Nay” in the meeting chat, or saying your name and “Yea” or “Nay” for phone participants.
Procedures for electing members to the Board of Directors have changed from last year. For this AGM voting will be open to all members, including those not attending the AGM. You will receive your ballot by e-mail before 9:00am on Saturday, 14 August 2021, and the voting period is from 9:00am to 2:15pm, when the results will be announced at the AGM. Seven of the total eleven Board positions are open, two for a one-year term, and five for a two-year term. Board member roles will be determined at the first Board meeting in September.
Because of the extended voting period, nomination for candidates for the Board of Directors will close at 8:00pm on Friday, 13 August 2021. The Board of Directors is actively seeking new directors. Members in good standing can submit their own name as a candidate. To nominate another member as a candidate please contact that member to ensure they accept the nomination. Nominations and acceptances should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Serving on the Radio Waterloo Board of Directors is a great way to get involved in Community Radio and learn more about the operation of the radio station!
Rob McKenna is the returning officer for this election, and will run the voting software, maintain the list of candidates, send ballots to the membership list, and announce the results at the AGM.
Members of Radio Waterloo should have received the AGM package with additional information such as the Agenda, financial statements, previous AGM minutes, and the Radio Waterloo bylaws.
There will be a brief meeting of the newly elected Board of Directors after the AGM in order to set a date for the next full Board meeting, at which the Executive positions will be decided and Committee chairs selected.
