Purpose of the Business Meeting

  • Vote on amendments to Slow Food Edmonton bylaws (see note below)
  • RATIONALE FOR PROPOSED BYLAW AMENDMENTS: While we’re a bit out of step, we will be bringing to your attention for voting, several changes in our bylaws. The original bylaws were drafted using a provincial standard template under the Societies Act. Our intent for the proposed changes is to:
    •  reflect customization to Slow Food
    •  change in the date for the AGM to more appropriately follow after the fiscal year end so that the Treasurer’s yearly report and audited records may be presented then
    • reflect move to email and other social media as ways of giving notice
    • maintain consistency among all notices of meetings to eight days

The Annual General Meeting will cover the following:

  • Election of Leader, Associate Leader, Secretary & Treasurer
  • Presentation of financial statement
  • Report from delegates to Terra Madre 2012
