|Nominations are requested for MBGA director positions to be elected at the Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2015.
The board of directors will serve to manage the affairs of the MBGA for a one year term following the election. If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer please e-mail email@example.com with the name and contact information of the nominee. Permission must be obtained before nominating another person. Nominees should submit a statement of their qualifications before the AGM.
Nominations are accepted for any Manitoba resident, 18 years or older, who is an eligible voting member of the MBGA for at least thirty (30) days prior to the election. Nominations are open until midnight, March 26, 2015.
For further details on the election and operation of the MBGA please refer to the Election Policy and Bylaws. Reviewing past meeting minutes of the MBGA committee will also give you an idea of what to expect.
Nominees are running for a director position on the board. Once the group of directors has been elected, the board will elect officer positions. The MBGA Board meets in Winnipeg, but directors may reside anywhere in Manitoba. In the past we have had directors from Brandon, Flin Flon, and The Pas and have used Skype to videoconference.
As per the MBGA Election Policy, if there are insufficient nominees to fill the Board positions, a call for nominees from the floor shall occur
at the AGM
This is a big year for the MBGA. Between our 10th anniversary GeoVenture celebration in August and tourismdauphin's Country Legends mega-event in July, there is an increased need for directors this year to help plan and execute what we would like to do. Please consider letting your name stand for nomination.
