Amnesty Canada’s next Annual General Meeting will be held on June 2, 2018 (1:00 Eastern) in Ottawa ON. This will be a small meeting, held in conjunction with a regular Board Meeting at the National Office in Ottawa, Ontario. The focus of the meeting will be on essential business of the organization, such as approving the Branch’s audited financial statements and appointing auditors for the next fiscal year. There will be no subsidies available for travel to this AGM, no guest speakers, workshops or special events.
Every second year, Amnesty members gather for a large AGM which is the highest decision-making forum for our Branch. The next large AGM will be held in 2019 (location has yet to be announced).
Members have the right to bring forward and vote on resolutions that give direction to the Branch’s work. All resolutions must be submitted 90 days prior to the AGM (March 4, 2018). Please check back in early 2018 for details on how to submit a resolution.
All members will be given official notice of the AGM 60 days before the meeting. In order to vote at the AGM or in online elections, you must be a member 30 days before the AGM (May 3, 2018). To learn more about our membership requirements and to get involved, go to amnesty.ca/members.
