OAC Annual General Meeting: June 1st, 2019

By May 8, 2019

The OAC invites all members to partake in our 2019 Annual General Meeting on June 1, 2019. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions about the organization and our on-going projects, in addition to sharing your input on the future direction of the OAC.  We’ll be holding the election for board membership, talking about the past year’s accomplishments, and discussing what’s on the horizon.

The meeting will be held at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area (7200 Appleby Line, Milton, ON L9E 0M9 — Upper Pavilion) on Saturday June 1st at 1:00 PM. There will be a discounted park entrance day pass for all attendees!  OAC membership is required for the discount. Come out to participate in the OAC Rattlesnake Point Stewardship Day activities.

To be eligible to vote at the AGM, one is required to be a member of the Ontario Alliance of Climbers. To allow for the processing of new members, please ensure applications are submitted prior to May 15th. Please visit our membership page at https://www.ontarioallianceofclimbers.ca/supporters/individual-membership/ for further details.

The OAC is very interested in increasing its capacity by attracting new ideas, leadership, and energy. At this meeting, we will elect three members to the Board of Directors (for a two-year term each). As always, we are also looking for portfolio managers and general volunteers. While members can be nominated to the Board at the AGM, any nominations submitted by May 15th will have their profiles distributed to the membership in advance. This will facilitate a structured voting process. Interested members are encouraged to contact the OAC in advance.

Potential board members should have:

  • An interest in (learning about) outdoor climbing access issues in Ontario
  • A varied skill set with a self-starter attitude
  • A positive, proactive team-based approach to problem solving

As a board member the individual will:

  • Attend monthly board meetings
  • Lead projects and/or access portfolios
  • Participate in developing and executing the OAC’s strategic goals

Further details will be provided to members 14 days prior to the AGM. If you do not receive notification by email, please send us a note (info@ontarioallianceofclimbers.ca).
