BC Marine Trails 2020 Annual General Meeting

The 2020 Annual General Meeting

The AGM is scheduled for Saturday, November 21st at 7pm. The meeting will be held online by Zoom. The necessary agenda, financial statement, and reports will be sent out to registrants approximately November 14th. Instructions on preparing for a Zoom online meeting will be included in the directions to people participating in this Annual General Meeting.

    • Six nominations to date for six positions:
      1. Secretary - Kelly Patterson will stand (current)
      2. President - Paul Grey will stand (current)
      3. Treasurer - Robert Holley will stand (current)
      4. Director - Allan Edwin will stand (current)
      5. Director - Jerry will stand (current)
      6. Director - Gina Gotch will put her name forward (current)

Five director positions are currently being held for another year by Nick Heath, Francine John, Gene Gapsis, Steve Best and Martin Ryer.

If you wish to stand for a position please advise Paul Grey at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  He will interview you and explain the complexity of the position. Generally, directors attend a monthly board meeting and take a role on one or more committtees. We are a working board. The BC Marine Trails currently have two part-time contract staff. If you wish to stand for a board position you need to state the executive position: secretary, president or treasurer or whether you would like to run as a director. The president is a fairly complex position and works similar to an executive director assisting contract staff and helping direct the organization. The treasurer's position is also complex. This position involves project management and use and presentation of software. The secretary's position records meetings and works with the membership manager, helping run the organization. All board meetings are held online. If more than six people are nominated for the 2020 AGM we will need to have an online vote. Please read the 2020 call for nominations for more information.
