The New Westminster Environmental Partners invite all members, present, past and future, to our Annual General Meeting, on Thursday, Dec 4, 2014, in the Spruce Room at Century House in Moody Park. The meeting starts at 7:00pm with sign in and meet-and-greet from 6:30pm.
This year’s theme is “Building Meaningful Action” springing from the fact that we have had many meaningful discussions this year, but how can those discussions become realities? How can the success of those actions be measured? And how can an organization like NWEP offer support to its members wanting to build their own initiatives? We want to move these great ideas from discussion to action and invite everyone to be part of that conversation on how to accomplish this.Guest Speaker: Susan Briggs, BA, MA
Topic: “The Public Environment: The Dangers of Privatizing Public Spaces”
We will also do the normal AGM stuff: financial disclosure, election of a new Board, and a fun review of the (many) successes of the previous year.
→ We will be discussing our constitution with the intent to change some bylaws — So it is extra important to attend if you would like to have a voice on topics such as directors and officers and the voting process.
→ Nominations will be taken from the floor during the AGM—Please consider joining the board if you want to collaborate and donate your skills to help support the expansion of NWEP activities and influence within our community and beyond with other enthusiastic team members.
→ Membership Fee — $5 a year, cash or cheque please.
If you need us to waive the fee because it is prohibitive for you, we will gladly do so as your participation is what’s truly valued. And if you are able to make a donation to help support our work and other memberships, that’s also appreciated.
→ If you are unable to attend the AGM, you can pay your membership by sending an email to contact @ nwep.ca for details.
Come out, take part in the NWEP, and help build a more sustainable and collaborative community in New Westminster!
- Please join us!
