Hi everyone: It’s time for the Fair Vote Waterloo Annual General Meeting. We’ll hold it on our regular Discussion Night, as that works for most people who responded to the poll.

What: Fair Vote Waterloo Annual General Meeting
When: Monday, 27 June 2016 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Where: The Board Room of Angels Diner
Location: 751 Victoria Street South, Kitchener, Ontario Map
Facebook: Annual General Meeting and Discussion Night


  1. Review minutes from 2015 AGM
  2. Statement from the Chair (year’s review)
  3. Old business
  4. Receive a current financial statement from the Treasurer
  5. Amendments
  6. Elect the Executive
  7. New business

All positions on the Executive are open for re-election: Two Co-chairs, Treasurer, Secretary, and up to three Members-at-Large.

If you’re unable to attend the AGM in person you can designate someone as a proxy to make nominations and vote for you. If you’d like to run for a position on the Executive you can nominate yourself, by proxy if need be.

This meeting is open to everyone, although you must be a paid-up member of Fair Vote Canada to vote or be on the Executive, but we’ll accept membership fees at the meeting ($25 for returning members, $10 for a first-time member)

Again this year I’d like make a motion to amend our constitution that some Executive positions be extended to two-year terms:

“To provide continuity on the Executive, the positions for Co-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer should be two-year terms, with one Co-Chair and Secretary alternating with the other Co-Chair and Treasurer. Members-At-Large would continue to serve one-year terms.”

Note that voting procedures for electing the Executive may need to be modified to accommodate a pool of two-year candidates and a pool of one-year candidates. Approved amendments take force immediately, so we can actually run this year’s election for two two-year positions (Co-chair and Treasurer?) and five one-year positions (the other Co-chair, Secretary and up to three Members-at-large). The next year the other Co-chair and Secretary will be elected for a two-year position.

See you at the meeting!

Co-chair, Fair Vote Waterloo
