Annual General Meeting Details

Voting

Since our last AGM, a new Societies Act has replaced the old Society Act. Changes in the new Societies Act have made the provision in our bylaws that provide weighted votes to member clubs based on their number of registered participants invalid.

This means that at the 2017 AGM, voting members (the 12 member clubs registered with Biathlon Canada last season) will each receive one vote.

A discussion on the bylaws has been included in the schedule for the workshops.

Accommodations

Discounted accommodations have been arranged for those attending the AGM in person. More details are available on the Biathlon BC website here: http://biathlonbc.ca/accommodations-for-biathlon-bc-agm/
