All CWD-O members are cordially invited to attend our 2nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) on June 19, 2008, starting at 7:00 pm EDT.
Two key activities for members at this year’s AGM will be:
- The ratification of Bylaw No. 1, a bylaw relating to the general transaction of business and affairs of CWD-O and
- The election of Directors for 2008-09
At the AGM, the Nominating Committee will propose a slate (list) of Directors that represents Ontario’s various regions, a cross-disability focus, and diversity within its membership. For 2008-09, Directors will be appointed for one- two- or three-year terms (by random selection) in order to establish a future rotation of vacancies of one-third of the board each year.
Nominations of self and others are most welcome. If you wish to be considered for this slate, please forward your completed nomination form to: email@example.com by May 15, 2008.
Participation at the AGM is enabled through IDEAL, an on-line conferencing system. Participants can type or talk on line (headset or microphone and speakers required). For information about how to log on to IDEAL, and for a schedule of training sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require an Interpreter or Captioner to participate online, please contact us as soon as possible so we can arrange for this accommodation.
The AGM is open to CWD-O members only. If you are not a member of CWD-O and wish to join so that you can attend the AGM, please complete and submit a membership form and send it to: email@example.com.
