Convening members in January 2021.
As a non-profit society, the Strathcona BIA is accountable to the Society’s Act. This gives members of the society (those who complete a membership form annually and are members in good standing of the society) the opportunity to put forward proposals and requisition a Special General Meeting (SGM). 17 society members-in-good-standing have signed on to a requisition calling for a SGM to consider changes they want made to our safety and security model, as well as where our physical office is located. As all the conditions of this requisition have been met under the Societies Act, an SGM has been called for Thursday, January 28th, 2021 at 9am. An official notice of the meeting has been mailed out to all SBIA members.
This will be a virtual meeting.
To help us follow physical distancing measures and provincial health guidelines, member’s are being asked to participate virtually by phone or online using a computer/tablet. The virtual SGM will be hosted on the platform GoWebinar.
Here's how to participate in the SGM.
In order to cast a vote at the SGM, we require all members to RSVP in advance. You can do that by emailing email@example.com or calling the SBIA office at 604-258-2727 with your name, business name, and address. Once we’ve confirmed your membership status you will receive a registration email that will include a unique meeting link, information on how to join and participate in the meeting, and instructions on how to test your system capabilities prior to the meeting. Members who cannot attend can assign another member-in-good-standing to act as their proxy. Please email us to request a proxy form.
