AGM Election Results
Thank you for participating in NCF's 23nd 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.
Wednesday, April 27th to Wednesday, May 4th
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 23nd Annual General Meeting.
The nominations period is from Friday, April 17th at 12am until Tuesday, April 26th 11:59pm.
If you have any questions or are interested in putting your nomination forward, please send an expression of interest, including your name and NCF member ID, to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 26th.
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: Four 3-year seats and one 2-year seat. Vote count will determine allocation of 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|
|Chris Cope||Nomination Committee|
|Martin Dubois||Nomination Committee|
|Pete de Lepper||Nomination Committee|
|Lauren Gardner||Nomination Committee|
|Diana Cantu||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
NCF matters of any sort can be discussed with members and candidates using the online AGM discussion group.
This year, you are also invited to meet some of the Board and potential candidates by attending an open house at the NCF Offices at 1305 Richmond Rd. Suite 206 on Tuesday, May 3rd from 7pm to 9pm.
Once the voting period opens on April 27th, 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, Shelley Robinson, at email@example.com or 613-721-1773 ext 1001.
There were 216 voters (of approximately 5400 registered members).
All seats were by acclamation, yet as there were seats of differing term length, voting determined which candidates received which terms.
