Please note, this is NOT for the awards but for the society which is very important since these are the people who do all the behind the scenes work.
Like last year you don’t have to attend the AGM in person to participate. Voting will be available online for paid CSFFA members. There are a number of important items we need your support. Unlike last year there will be no changes to the bylaws or the how we manage the awards.
Online voting closes on May 19st at 3am EDT (or Midnight, May 18th PDT). This is a Monday night (or very early Tuesday morning for some) so we have time to tabulate the numbers. There will be in-person voting at the AGM in Vancouver on May 23rd.
This is an outline of what you will be voting on. Not a lot of items but your support is definitely needed.
- Approval of Minutes from the 2014 AGM.
- Selection of Canvention site for 2016 – Calgary’s When Words Collide.
- Election of Directors
- Ratification of Board Actions in 2014-15
- Questions from Members and Attendees
For those in the Vancouver area, we will be holding CSFFA’s AGM on May 23rd, 2015 at The Roundhouse Community Centre (181 Roundhouse Mews) in Vancouver from 2 – 5 PM (PDT). It is a few blocks from the Yaletown and Roundhouse SkyTrain station. We are looking to make this a fun event with more than just the AGM.
Those who attend and are paid CSFFA members may vote then instead of online. You will be first to see our new Hall of Fame trophy. The trophy designer, sculptor/artist Gideon Hay, will be on hand for you to meet. You will also be the first to know who will be on the 2015 Aurora award ballot. These are just a few of the special things that will happen. Full details about the AGM and what you will be voting on can be found online at our website.
We need your support so vote online or join us on the 23rd in person.
