IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!! Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the VSA Board has decided to host the Annual General Meeting online this year via Zoom. We will be going ahead with the meeting as scheduled and planned at 9:00 am on Saturday, November 14, 2020. The same rules will apply as they would with an in-person AGM and each town association/club will be allowed two voting delegates. As per previous e-mails, we are still requesting that towns pre-register no later than noon on Friday, November 13, 2020. Please send registrants names and e-mails and whether or not they will be voting delegates before this deadline.
AGM packages and Zoom links will be sent out to all registered delegates on Friday. After the AGM, if you would like a hard copy of the AGM packet sent to you via mail, please let Schenley know at email@example.com.
In order to be in good standing and have voting privileges at the AGM, all forms and required documentation must be filled out and sent in via e-mail prior to the start of the AGM to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any outstanding fees owed to VSA must also have been paid and received as well. If you still owe fees to VSA, please get this settled so that you don’t lose your good standing status. To everyone who as already sent everything in, thank you!
VSA ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The annual general meeting of the VSA will take place on Saturday, November 14, 2020 from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the Legends Centre in Warman. All members are welcome to attend. Each town association is allowed two voting delegates. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are limited to the number of attendees. All attendees MUST pre-register by NOON on November 13, 2020!
MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL FORM
Both the Membership Renewal form and Directors Insurance form will need to be completed and returned along with required documentation by November 14th. Please bring along with you to the AGM, or scan and email all documents to email@example.com prior to the deadline. These were sent out to all town associations/clubs on Friday, September 4, 2020 with the announcement of the AGM.
If the Directors Insurance form, Member Renewal form (including the supporting documents requested on the form), and any outstanding fees have not been received by November 14th, the board may change your membership status to not in good standing prior to the AGM, which could jeopardize your eligibility to vote.
