2015 Call for Board Nominations and Volunteers

We are a volunteer organization and we are only as strong as our volunteers.

There is a great deal to do and it is all interesting. By serving on the Board, helping out regularly as a Street Representative, or just occasionally on special projects and committees you will be helping to improve your community.

Board Nominations

To insure continuity, the ABCRA Board of Directors  is elected on a rotating basisElection to the ABCRA Board of Directors will be held at the  Association's Annual General Meeting scheduled for October 6, 2015. Nominees for election must be members in good standing of the Association and must notify the current Board of Directors in writing, of their intention to stand for election  by September 25, 2015.

Notification of the intention of interest to stand for election to the Board of Directors can be sent to the Board by email at board@abcra.ca. Prospective candidates are asked to familiarize themselves with the governing documents of the corporation and also to submit, with their notification, a brief resume of their qualifications for the position of Director to be shared with members at the AGM. 

Nominees will be contacted by one of the Co-Presidents to discuss their interests and the roles of the Board of Directors of the ABCRA.

Other Ways to Get More Involved

These commitments are less time consuming than being a member of the Board and are ways to be more involved.

For Example:

Street Representation: See SECTION 9 on the GOVERNANCE PAGE.

Street Reps are important to bring attention to the particular issues on your street and also to keep your neighbours informed about issues that may affect them. 

Special Committees:  ABCRA can strike Special Committees to work on special issues. Do you have an issue you think deserves more attention?
For example, the aging tree canopy on your street, or the need for speed bumps, or form a committee and get neighbours organized to advocate for improvements.
The Board will help. 

Email board@abcra.ca if you want to talk to someone about these possibilities. 

Registered Members of ABCRA are entitled to vote.  Your vote is important.

ABCRA Board of Directors is authorized to make most decisions for the Association.  If you are a registered member of ABCRA and attend the Annual General Meeting on October 6, 2015 you may cast your vote at the Annual General Meeting.

Dated as of September 8, 2015.
