2022-12-14 OARC Annual General Meeting

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 @ 7:30 PM ET

Meeting details

Under the club’s constitution, we must hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) by the end of the year.

We do not know yet if this meeting will be in-person, hybrid, or Zoom-only. That depends on the City of Ottawa room rental policies and the state of COVID mandates in Ottawa in December. On 2022-10-11 the city informed us that room rentals will not resume before 2023, so this AGM will be a Zoom meeting. Once the business portion of the meeting has concluded, we will have whatever kind of holiday festivities (traditionally goodies to eat and drink) we can muster.

The main order of business is to present a slate of candidates, seek new expressions of interest for positions (vacant and occupied) and have the members confirm the executive for 2022-23. The slate of candidates to be presented at the AGM would hold office through to and including the 2023 Annual General Meeting.

Uncle OARC needs you!

For the OARC to run properly, we need people to step up and fill the executive positions. You can see a full list of the incumbents at https://oarc.net/executive/ . Some of the incumbents are prepared to stay on, but others have been serving for a long time and would like to step back and let someone else fill their position. Please email executive@oarc.net if you are willing to help or know of someone who would. Of course, these are not sink or swim positions. You would have complete support from the other members of the executive as you acclimatize.

The OARC executive consist of a board of 7 directors, namely:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Three (3) directors at large (they have no fixed duties)

The immediate past president is a member of the board, bringing the total to 8 directors.

The board also appoints two additional directors (for a total of 10) namely:
