The New Westminster Environmental Partners invite all members, present, past and future, to our Annual General Meeting, on Thursday, Nov 14, 2013, in the auditorium of the New Westminster Main Public Library. The meeting starts at 7:00pm and doors open from 6:30pm.
This year’s theme is “Community Collaboration,” and in the spirit of the topic, we are having a collective discussion on the topic of engagement. How do we engage our members and our community? How does an organization like the NWEP find out what its members shared values are and distil it into a message that connects with the issues? After a year where the NWEP met some interesting challenges and had serious internal discussions about how we function as an organization, the conversation is timely, and we hope it will be spirited and interesting!
Special Guest: After meeting with Delta Council’s Environmental Advisory Committee, Paula Williams from Communities and Coal plans to join us. This group presented a petition signed with more than 10,000 signatures to Surrey Council last week before Surrey voted to oppose the coal terminal until an independent, third-party health assessment and full public hearings are complete.
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.
→ 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 by mailing a cheque to 727 McKay Street, New Westminster, BC V3L 4T6. Please make it out to the New Westminster Environmental Partners.
Come out, take part in the NWEP, and help build a more sustainable and collaborative community in New Westminster!
