Please join us for the One Straw Society Annual General Meeting.
We will meet on Friday October 26th after the Fall Faire harvest celebration for our AGM and special resolution will begin at 7:15pm.
Our formal meeting will include a public address from the Board of Directors and Executive Director as well as our annual funding report for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

One Straw Society is also proposing a special resolution to make changes to our bylaws which can be reviewed here : http://www.onestraw.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/draft-new-bylaws-proposed-2018-09-by-clf.pdf
These changes are reflective of the change over to the new societies act which will be happening November 2018. The core of the bylaws come directly from the act and we are proposing some simple changes to help our organization function smoothly including modifying membership categories, adding electronic voting and making revisions to Board recruitment to ensure proper diversity amongst our Board members.
Please review the bylaws before the meeting and if you have any questions, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also ensure time is set aside for a discussion at the meeting before voting.
We will also be nominating and voting in new board members. If you or someone you know is interested in submitting a nomination form for review, we ask for this to be sent in by October 18th, no more than 7 days prior to the AGM. Nomination forms and more information on being a board member can be found here : http://www.onestraw.ca/jointheboard/
We encourage you to come early and enjoy the Fall Faire! Warm soup will be available for sale so please join us, hang with community, buy fresh food from local producers and celebrate the harvest! More information can be found here : http://www.onestraw.ca/event/one-straw-society-annual-fall-faire/
