June 3, 4 and 5 2022
Dear Amnesty Members,
Amnesty International Canada (English Section) is pleased to announce that we will be holding our 2022 Annual General Meeting from June 3-5 2022.
This AGM will be held online in conjunction with a regular Board Meeting.
The focus of this meeting will be on essential business of the organization, such as approving the Branch’s audited financial statements and appointing auditors for the next fiscal year.
Resolutions, including amendments to the By-laws or Standing Orders, may be submitted by any member of the Branch and by the Board of Directors (in accordance with Article 6.05 c of By-law No. 1). Please note that in previous years the support of 5 additional members was required. This is no longer necessary according to our new By-laws.
Information on how to submit a resolution and resolutions guidelines are available here.
Deadline for resolutions: 5 March 2022 (send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
Resolutions received after that deadline may be considered by the AGM if 2/3 of those registered for the AGM agree to accept them for discussion.
All members will be sent an electronic ballot for Board elections at the end of May 2022.
