An Invitation to an EDBFA Special Meeting to Nominate/Vote-in Key Positions
The purpose of this meeting is to nominate and vote on the key positions listed below, that were not filled at the February AGM, without which the EDBFA cannot operate as a Society and may not be able to hold a Festival.
The following positions were vacated on February 11, 2014 as board members terms came to an end or incumbents stepped down:
Board members can expect to commit an average of 10 hours a week, which fluctuates during the year, depending upon the portfolio they hold. Example, the Director of Racing position is busy in the months leading up to the Festival, the President and Secretary are busy year-round.
Attached below for your information is job descriptions for each position and the nomination form.
A second meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, starting at 6pm, at the Investors Group Building, #102, 8905 – 51 Ave (Simone’s Office) for the sole purpose of filling these positions.
Please note that the $50 VSC refund/team does not apply to this Special Meeting as no 2014 Program Information will be discussed.
