We are asking all members to attend a VERY brief meeting on August 8th. Lots of people will be on vacation which is why it is imperative that any one who can come … come.
We passed the new ByLaws at last years’ October AGM and submitted them to the province for adoption. They had 2 small adjustment requests
- any decision about new bylaws needs 75% of the vote to pass (changed from 2/3rds) in section 11c (page22)
- it needed to be clearer on how members could request that directors AND executive directors be removed from office so we stated both types of “directors and executive officers” instead of “directors” in section 6.5 (page 10)
The whole set of updated bylaws (July edits requested by the province) are at this link. To compare to the bylaws submitted and passed last fall at the AGM are at this link. They are the same except sections 11c and 6.5.
Thank you City of Calgary and Deer Run! It was a great turnout, a great help to the environment and all accomplished by amazing volunteers. Thanks! Continue reading
Volunteers …. THANK YOU! The kids Christmas party was a very very large success that could not have happened with out all the hard work. An extra thanks to all the grade 5 & 6 volunteers who created the games, prepped, practiced the games and ran all the fun stations for the younger kids to enjoy. This is the youngest group I have ever worked with to run an event but ironically it was the smoothest run event I have ever done. We had so many new volunteer faces and I am excited to see so many new people in our community so excited to give back. Thanks also to Lori for her first successful event, learning the ropes and putting up with all of us. Peter Demong, your city representative, has told us a few times that Deer Run has some of the best family events in the city. So why is Deer Run so great!? Well because you care and take the time to volunteer. THANKS VOLUNTEERS!
