2020 Annual General Meeting


Dear Membership,

Our Annual General Meeting will be September 20th from 4:30-6:30 pm via zoom. If you would like to attend please respond to this email, and I will include you on the zoom invite.

If you would like to become a member of the Board there are two policies of which you should be aware.

Our By-Laws require that you are member and submit two (2) signed nominations from two (2) other members to the President 1 week before the AGM. Nominators may send nominations to to info@nsweightlifting.ca. An email nomination will be considered a signed nomination.

After the AGM, the newly elected Board will elect a new VP Administration and VP Finance. If you have any questions about those positions feel free to contact us.

Before applying, please review our Board Member Volunteering Policy:
  1. The purpose of this policy is to ensure Board Members contribute, when possible, to the labour involved in hosting an event.
  2. At a minimum, Board Members are obligated to assist with set-up and/or clean-up of the facility. NSWA meets are run purely on the expectation that Board Members will volunteer at these event. Coaching obligations and/or competitive interests at a given competition do not exclude Board Members from responsibilities but may alleviate some expectations provided there is fair warning to the rest of the Board.
  3. A Board Member's priorities at a competition should be to the accessibility of weightlifting and facilitating a fair, fun, and safe competition for all members of the organization.
Beyond these obligations, we hold monthly meetings on Sundays which usually take about 90 minutes. Even if you choose not to run for a position on the Board we encourage you to attend the meeting and participate in the development of this sport.

We are always looking for volunteers. If you cannot commit to becoming a member of the Board but would like to help, please get in touch and we will find a way to get you involved.

Below you will find the AGM agenda as well as a copy of the By-Laws.

You may email wlcoach.jacob@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Jacob Glover,

President
