Running for VV Board of Directors at November AGM - Society membership deadline Tuesday, August 25

Hi all,

We hope you're enjoying the summer.

2015 has been a great year for Village Vancouver. We're starting to make plans for our 2015 AGM, which will be held on Monday, November 23, and all indications are that 2016 promises to be even better!

With this in mind, we'd like to remind you that, in accordance with our bylaws, if you're considering running for a position on the board at the AGM and aren't a member of Village Vancouver Transition Society, you'll need to apply for membership in the Society no later than Tuesday, August 25.

You can apply by clicking on Join VV Transition Society

or http://www.villagevancouver.ca/page/become-a-member-of-the-village-vancouver-transition-society

on the VV website and filling out the application. Please note that being a member of the website is different from being a member of the Society, and that you need to be a member in good standing of VV Transition Society (applying no later than Tuesday, August 25, 2015) in order to be eligible to run at the November 23, 2015 AGM.

If you have any questions, please contact us at agm.vvts@gmail.com.

We look forward to your participation.

Cheers,
Ross

Ross Moster, President
Village Vancouver Transition Society

on behalf of your VV Board of Directors (Ann, Emmanuel, Hendrik, Kathy, Laura Lee, Louise, Ross, and Stephanie)
