AGM Election Results
Thank you for participating in NCF's 22nd online Annual General Meeting, organized and conducted entirely by volunteers. Thank you also, on behalf of NCF's thousands of members, to every candidate for participating in this election. NCF Board members serve as volunteers, to the benefit of NCF members and their community.
Below are the AGM election results.
March 24 9:00am to March 31 6:00pm EST
NCF's Annual General Meeting is held online so that
as many as possible of NCF's thousands of members can participate.
Welcome to NCF's 22nd Annual General Meeting.
The roles of a board member: Prospective board members come from all walks of life and bring varied experience to the Board. The ability to understand financial reporting and to make business decisions is essential, and often board members have subject-area expertise, such as experience in management or law. Collectively, NCF's eleven board members have the experience to recognize and approve plans and strategies that will move NCF toward its goals.
NCF has a 'governance' board, where day-to-day operations are handled by staff and volunteers, under the management of the Executive Director. The Board sets the mission, vision, principles, and broad policies that guide the Executive Director. The Board is responsible for employing and evaluating the Executive Director, and for monitoring macro parameters that measure the operation of NCF.
Candidates are asked to answer three questions and to provide other information that they believe will be helpful to voters. The three questions are:
This year there are five seats to fill, of varying term length: Two 3-year seats, one 2-year seat, and two 1-year seats. Vote count will determine allocation of seats.
|There are five seats and three candidates, so all candidates will receive a seat. Your vote will help determine which two candidates will receive the two full-term (3 year) seats.|
The listing order of candidate names below is determined by random draw. The listing order on ballots is also random (for each ballot) and so likely isn't the same as below.
The candidates are:
|Candidate||Nominated by||Seconded by|
|Peter MacKinnon||Nomination Committee|
|Graeme Beckett||Nomination Committee|
|Robert McRae||Nomination Committee|
Click on each candidate name for information about that candidate.
The Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act, which governs NCF, calls for members to consider this motion at each AGM:
Motion: Appointment of Auditors
There is no 'special business' to be considered.
NCF matters of any sort can be discussed with members and candidates using the online AGM discussion group.
Enter your vote (by clicking here) for candidates and motions. If asked, please enter your NCF account ID (eg., aa315) and your NCF password (help). You may change your vote by voting again any time during the voting period.
That concludes the formal part of the AGM.
Your comments and suggestions make a difference and help NCF operate better. Now and any time, you can make your opinions known by contacting NCF's Executive Director at the NCF Office (613-721-1773 ext 112, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
There were 184 voters (of approximately 5000 registered members).
All seats were by acclamation, yet as there were seats of differing term length, voting determined which candidates received which terms.
