The Griesbach Community League Annual General Meeting is scheduled for:
Monday, March 11, 2019
Major General Griesbach School gym
304 Griesbach School Rd NW
This is an open meeting. All members of the community are invited to attend. We will be giving an update on events and accomplishments during the past year, current projects and future priorities. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of the board and to let the board know what you would like to see in 2019/20.
The AGM is also the time we hold elections for new board members.
You must have a valid 2018/19 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 here.

How much time does it take to be on the GCL board?
Your time is valuable! Board meetings are limited to one evening per month and last a maximum of two hours. They usually take place at MGG school, from 7-9 p.m.
After the once-per-month meeting, time commitment will vary depending on the projects and events related to your position. You can take on more, or less, work, as your schedule allows.
Why should I run for a board position?
Meet new friends. The board works hard, but it finds lots of time for fun. There are social events for board members at least a few times each year. The board is a friendly bunch and you certainly don’t need to know anyone on the board to join.
Make the neighbourhood even better. You will have a hand in planning and executing the kind of events and programs you want to see to make Griesbach an even better place to live.
Be in the know. You will be the first know what is going on in the neighbourhood. You will liaise with local developers, politicians and other stakeholders to have your say on new projects and priorities.
Build your resume and 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 skills and meet all kinds of people.
