Our Annual General Meeting is Monday, March 11 at 7 p.m. at MGG School.
This is your chance to know what is going on in the community and have your say on priorities for 2019-20.
The AGM is also the time we hold elections for new board members. The following positions are up for election:
- Neighbourhood Watch
- Structures & Facilities
You must have a valid Griesbach Community League membership in order to run for a board position or vote in new members. Memberships will be on sale ahead of the meeting, or you can purchase one online at efcl.org.
From parties, to lobbying on important community issues, to kids’ sports programs, we couldn’t make any of this happen without volunteers. If you’ve been thinking about volunteering, don’t be shy. Read on to learn more.
What’s the time commitment for the board?
Your time is valuable and we keep this in mind. Board meetings are limited to one weekday evening per month. They usually take place at MGG School, from 7-9 p.m.
After the once-per-month meeting, additional time commitments vary depending on the projects and events related to your position.
Why should I run for a board position?
Meet new friends. The board works hard, but it finds lots of time for fun. The board members aim to foster a friendly, inclusive volunteer environment. You don’t need to know anyone on the board to join and there are social events just for members throughout the year.
Make the neighbourhood even better. You will have a hand in planning and executing the kind of events and programs you want to see in Griesbach.
Be in the know. You will be the first to know what is go- ing on in the neighbourhood. You will liaise with local developers, politicians and other stakeholders to have your say on new projects, priorities and developments.
Build your network. At least one of our board members launched a great new career this year through a connection made during GCL volunteer work. We can’t promise you a new or better job opportunity, but we can promise a chance to develop new skills and meet all kinds of people.
Please contact Brad: firstname.lastname@example.org to get your name on the ballot ahead of the meeting. He would be happy to answer any more questions about what it is like to be a GCL board member. You can also read here for more detailed descriptions of board positions.
This is an open meeting. All members of the community are invited to attend and we hope you do come, even if you don’t want to run for a board position. We will be giving an update on events and accomplishments during the past year and outlining future priorities. There will be an opportunity to provide feedback.
