Our AGM Agenda, Board Candidates, Reports

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Our eleventh Annual General Meeting (AGM) is being held on Sunday, December 10, 2017. We will begin promptly at 10:00 am and will end by 12:00 p.m. The AGM is taking place in room 218 at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (750 Spadina Avenue at Bloor and Spadina). Please note refreshments will not be served, but you may bring your own into the room, if you wish.

MEMBERSHIP

All members of Shir Libeynu are entitled to vote at the AGM. (All are welcome, but only members can vote.) If you cannot attend the AGM, you may send in your proxy, by Thursday, December 7 at 6:00 pm by clicking here. Your proxy authorizes someone else to vote on your behalf and can be signed over to a member or non-member of your choice or it can be signed over to the chair of the AGM. We encourage you to send in your proxy if you can’t attend in order to ensure that we make quorum (5% of our membership).

Because children are considered fully responsible Jews at the time of their bar or bat mitzvahs, if membership was purchased for children 13 years of age or older and/or who have had a bar or bat mitzvah, they are entitled to attend and vote at our AGM. If the membership status of a young person in your family is not clear, please e-mail us at shirlibeynu@yahoo.ca or leave a message at 416-465-5488.
