This serves as notice of the 2020 Calgary Outdoor Club Annual General Meeting.

THIS IS TO ADVISE THAT: as a result of the Government of Alberta’s Ministerial order no. SA: 009/2020 – Service Alberta, which enabled non-profits to hold meetings through remote or virtual means, having ended August 15, 2020 and a new order not being signed, we are now legislated to return to normal when conducting our AGM. Unfortunately this means NO virtual AGMs unless your bylaws allow for such a virtual meeting and voting.

As a result of the expiration of the order and in light of:

1. Our club bylaws make no provision for electronic or virtual AGMs.
2. Our bylaws refer to Roberts Rules of Order (Article 8.1) as governing all points of order not specifically addressed by the bylaws.
3. Roberts Rules specifically disallow electronic meetings unless the bylaws state they are permitted.
4. Our bylaws (4.1.7) prohibit proxy voting.
5. Our bylaws ( stipulate voting is in person by show of hands.

We are left with no option but to hold the AGM in person. Therefore, the board has secured a venue that ensures the safety of all of our members, wherein social distancing can be maintained at all times. Masks will be mandatory, unless you are sitting in your chair.

You will be required to answer these questions at check-in. You must also have electronically signed the waiver on registration for this event. If you do not wish to answer these questions or comply with the Club's COVID guidelines, please remove yourself from the event.
