Annual general meeting

MEC holds this meeting every year. Any member can attend. You’ll discover what MEC has been up to for the past year, meet the Board and leadership team, vote on matters raised and you can tell us what matters to you.

The goals of the AGM are to:

  • Be transparent to members and staff.
  • Let members and staff know about MEC’s financial stability and governance.
  • Help members and staff understand how MEC’s strategy will enable MEC to fulfill its purpose.

During the meeting we announce the results from our annual Board of Directors election. The Board, CEO, and senior leaders provide reports and audited financial statements from the previous fiscal year, and a Parliamentarian, who’s an independent expert on meeting procedures, observes the proceeding.

The last AGM was held on April 14, 2016. To find out what happened, read the 2016 AGM draft minutes (PDF)
