Official notice of Biathlon BC’s 2014 annual general meeting is now being sent by email to members.

The AGM will be on May 23-25 in Kamloops. The official annual general meeting will start at 11:00 on May 25th in the Alpine Room at the Kamloops Residence & Conference Centre.

Biathlon BC will reimburse the gas costs for one car from each member club to drive to and from the AGM. Please keep your receipts and submit them to the treasurer at the AGM.

Please note that the following board positions will be up for election: President, Vice President – Program Development and Delivery, and Secretary. If you would like to nominate anyone for any of these positions, please do so by e-mailing your nomination to office@biathlonbc.ca. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor at the AGM.

If you are planning on attending the workshops and the AGM please send an email to office@biathlonbc.ca so we have an idea of how much food to order.

At the AGM, members will be asked to discuss and vote on a new set of bylaws for Biathlon BC. The Board of Directors of Biathlon BC has recommended a series of changes to the bylaws, which are set out in this summary, and can be seen in detail in this markup of the current bylaws. These recommendations will be the subject of one of several workshops preceeding the AGM so that members can discuss the bylaws in advance of the AGM.
