Delwood Annual General Meeting 2016

March 21, 2016

ATTENTION : Calling Out To All Delwood Residents
Delwood needs your attendance!

We must have quorum at the Annual General Meeting to be able to proceed with running the community. If we do not get quorum then we cannot conduct the business of the community, including electing a new Executive Board and running the many programs that you enjoy — for example soccer, youth programs, Fall Festival and the running of the ice rink etc.

Any Delwood resident, with a current community membership qualifies as a voting member. Memberships will be available at the meeting. This is your chance to have a vote on what happens within your community and to find out what the community is planning for the following year. You DO NOT have to volunteer at the meeting, but your community league needs your attendance and please bring your neighbours with you.

Hall Renovations

The Hall Renovation committee has been making progress throughout this year and will have important decisions to report, as well as decisions that need to be voted on before we move towards the actual renovations.

Board Vacancies

Due to some dedicated Delwood residents we have been able to fill most of the positions on the executive board. We have two important vacancies on the Board – Fundraising Director and Programs Director. We also have 2 of our executives doing double duty and fulfilling two positions each. So please consider giving the community some of your time by volunteering for the Executive Board or for one of our many events. If you have any questions about the Executive Board positions please contact Greg at president@delwood.ca or (780) 472-7864.
