2018 Annual General Meeting

Monday, June 4th
UBC Golf Club (5185 University Boulevard, Vancouver)

Registration: 6:30 pm
Meeting: 7:00 pm

We welcome all members of the Vancouver Thunderbirds to join the Board of Directors and the Association staff and primary skill providers at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The AGM happens typically every June and serves as the primary in person communication channel to inform the membership of recent activities and future plans. It also provides an additional method for members to ask questions of the Board and staff.

We hope that as many of our members as possible do take the time to attend this meeting as it allows for a strong communication flow to our membership.

As previously communicated, the Vancouver Thunderbirds Board has established a Board Nominating Committee as was done last year, to oversee the director recruitment process to ensure that the Board of Directors is composed of leaders with a diverse and relevant mix of skills, experience, and knowledge. The Board has formed a committee comprised of five members at large and three current Board members who are not seeking election in this upcoming AGM.

The mandate of the committee was to lead the process of identifying Board needs, seek and evaluate qualified candidates for the Board, recommend to the Board nominees for election to the Board, and work with the Board to communicate recommended nominees to the membership.  As per the Vancouver Thunderbird Minor Hockey bylaws, and in conjunction with this process, nominations for election to the Board will also be taken from the floor at the AGM.

The nominating committee has recommended to the Board the following five candidates for election to the Board, to join the existing five members of the Board whose term is not expiring until next year.  The committee has stated that they are confident that the commitment, experience and expertise of these individuals will enhance the Board and benefit the VTMHA organization.  [The Board accepts the Committee’s recommendation and in turn recommends that the membership elect these candidates].
