We are pleased to invite you and your family to attend the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Chinese Society of Nova Scotia.
When: Saturday 7th October 2017 4-6 pm
Where: May Garden Banquet Restaurant (961 Bedford Hwy, Bedford, NS B4A 1A9) followed by a dinner (details enclosed).
The AGM is an important constitutional gathering of the CSNS members to hear about the progress, recent and on-going developments and achievements of the Society during the past year. The AGM also provides a forum for members to discuss a variety of important Society matters. Every member is welcome to put forward any proposals and ideas for the future development of the Society. Please submit your proposals to the Society’s Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) in writing at least 7 days before the AGM in order for them to be included in the meeting agenda.
Voting members may make nominations for the Executive Committee to be elected at the AGM. This must be done by sending the nominee’s name, the post for which they are nominated, and the names of both the proposer and seconder, to the Executive Committee (email@example.com) before AGM (Deadlines see the vacancy announcement for EC and Board director, respectively). The positions that are open for nominations are:
- Three Board Directors;
- The Executive Committee including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Directors (Communication, Culture and Education, Sports and Health).
The nomination and consent forms were sent out some time ago and they are enclosed in this notice. The election will be done by a show of hands at AGM. Proxies are acceptable. By constitution, any “special resolution” must be approved by 75% of the attending members (including proxies).
We urge you to attend the AGM to socialize yourself with old and new friends. As an appreciation to members participating the AGM, the after-AGM dinner will be subsidized. ONLY members who attend the AGM are subsidized for the dinner. We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 AGM.
After-AGM Dinner (6:00~9:00PM):
Adult: $25/person. The Society will subsidize $15/person for up to two adults per family for family membership and one adult for individual membership. At least one member must attend the meeting in order to get subsidy.
New members are welcome! Existing members can renew your membership on AGM.
Membership for 2017-2018: Family $40/year, individual $20/year. We accept cash, cheque or email transfer: firstname.lastname@example.org
