AGM Election Process
Paid up members may nominate themselves or another member for election at the AGM. Nominees can make a short speech to tell members a little about themselves and why they want to be on the Board.
Election to the Board is effected by a process of acclamation by the members present at the AGM. (i.e., all in favour of electing this nominee to the Board say “yes”).
If there are objections, a show of hands is counted. Otherwise the person is deemed to be elected. Specific positions (Co-Chair, Treasurer etc.) are appointed by the newly elected Board at the next Board meeting.
MDO requires a minimum of 7 Board members, maximum of 13. If more than 13 members are nominated for the Board at the AGM, a secret ballot is used.
MDO MONTHLY SPEAKER NIGHT
Limited free parking is available at the rear of the building and additional parking on side streets.
