CMBA 2016 AGM – October 26

The CMBA is holding its Annual General Meeting [AGM] on October 26, 2016, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. The location is Brewster’s [834 11th Avenue SW]. Free bike and car parking are available, and the LRT is 4 blocks north.

AGM in a Nutshell

We have an AGM every year to select the board executive and some other roles within the organization, and give a quick report on what we did over the building season. We also drink beer. You don’t have to be a member of the CMBA to attend, but only CMBA members in good standing can vote on most issues.

We have a number of open positions on the Board that need to be filled. If you’re interested in lending a hand, we could use the help. We meet once a month and chat about trails ‘n’ stuff. There is no specific requirement for you to build trails or even ride bikes, but it would probably help. Also, if there’s something that you think we should be doing, but aren’t, maybe a role or committee could be created for that thing…
