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 June 22, 2017.  You can read the 2017 AGM Draft Minutes here: Download PDF.

When is the next MEC AGM?

The 2018 AGM will be held on June 21, 2018 at 6:00pm PT at MEC’s Head Office in Vancouver (details).

We give notice to the membership 21 days in advance of the meeting by posting the time, date, and location details here on our website. Any member can attend, and anyone who has been a member for 16 weeks or longer is eligible to vote, and has one vote on each matter presented at the meeting.

If you would like to move a resolution at the meeting, you must deliver written notice to our Governance Office no less than 90 days before the AGM. Read more about resolutions.
