It’s AGM time again and a Board Member election. If you’re interested in getting more involved with the dog park and standing, here’s some info to consider:
There is one position coming to term this year: 4 Board members are standing again.
Anyone with a current paid membership at the time of the meeting is eligible to stand for a position and you can vote (no matter where you live).
Board & project meetings: the FLBDP Board currently meets monthly. This is usually a 1–2-hour meeting held during the day from 11am-1pm (subject to change). In addition to this, sub-committees or project teams meet up as required for specific tasks.
Some tasks: maintenance, admin, monitoring & attending city meetings, membership management, fundraisers and social events all take additional time.
In total, the monthly time commitment can be more than 4-6 hours so please ensure you have that kind of spare time to support a role.
Teamwork: we’re all different but are united by our love of pups and the dog park. Caring about its protection and ongoing improvement is what drives us to volunteer for the board and give our time to this amazing cause. Sometimes there’s conflict or disagreement – which can be healthy if approached with respect for one another. We never forget we’re all volunteers.
Our board adheres to rules of order, tabling motions, and voting on them so that objections can be noted, and things move forward with a majority support. If you want to stand, then expect to navigate things like this and collaborate for the greater good of the park and keeping it safe for everyone.
The deadline for candidates is Friday, November 3, 2023 and will require a short paragraph about why you believe you would be a good member of the board and a photo. Submissions should be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The meeting agenda will be as follows:
- Call to order
- Recognition of new and renewed members
- Call for quorum
- Year-end financial report
- Voting for 2024-2025 board officer
