Today (Mon, March 27) is the deadline to nominate someone to be your proxy in the Cycle Toronto Board of Director election at the AGM this Thursday. This is really really useful if you are a member but won’t be able to make the meeting.
All 16 candidates (of which I am one – you can learn more about why I’m running here) look amazing, and I’m confident that whoever gets voted into the 5 open spots on the Cycle Toronto Board will do a fantastic job.
Details from an email below to members with candidate bios, AGM meeting agenda, and more.
If you’re not a member of Cycle Toronto yet (you need to be one to attend the AGM and/or vote), you can join here. You can find out more about the work they do by checking their about page, their advocacy campaigns, and their programs.
(note: I’m on the list of candidates)
From Cycle Toronto:
We are very excited for our upcoming AGM on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at The Garrison.
In this email we provide you with information regarding board director elections, proxy forms, by-law amendment proposal, and our meeting agenda.
This year we will be electing 5 new directors to our Board from a pool of 16 excellent candidates. Click here to view our candidate profiles. The Board is seeking candidates with skills and experience in the following areas: finance and accounting, previous board experience, fundraising, business development, strategic networks, and marketing. We are also seeking to increase the diversity of directors on our Board.
As in past years, our elections will be run by Fair Vote Canada, and we wish to recognize and thank them for their assistance again this year.
