2019 Ontario Environment Network AGM
Saturday February 22nd 9.45am
Dear members and supporters,
Please accept this as the required 30-day notice for the Annual General Meeting of the Ontario Environment Network via telephone on Saturday, February 22.
Dial-in will begin from 9:45am, and the meeting will be held starting promptly at 10:00am and last until about 12:00pm. While a draft agenda can be found below, please note we are facing several challenges but anticipate a banner year.
Key challenges are the stepping away from the Steering Committee of several individuals who have played important roles for several years, including both of our Co-chairs, Leslie Adams and me, as well as others.
We encourage anyone who is interested in serving on the Steering Committee to brush up on the organizational information on the website, and to contact Wendy Thomson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about responsibilities and the time commitment.
We anticipate a banner year because both Leslie and Wendy will concentrate on the Biodiversity Caucus and the fall 2020 Biodiversity Conference, and as the OEN will be a partner in WaterScape III, which will be a forum for discussing a more sustainable Ontario and which we hope might generate one or more new caucuses.
Agenda and call in information is below. However if you can't attend please fill in and return a proxy form.
