The WHS is holding their ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Tuesday January 7th, 2020 at Zion Lutheran Church beginning at 7:30pm.
At this meeting, our Accountant from Cogent will be presenting the Financial Review from the last Fiscal year October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.
We will be holding our election of 12 board members. If you are interested in joining our organization and sitting on our board here are some requirements we ask of you.
- You need to have a paid membership. Membership is valid for one year – from AGM to the next AGM. Forms are available at the shelter and you can submit payment there by cash, cheque, debit or by E transfer. Membership can also be paid the night of the AGM before the meeting begins. (cash only) Regular membership is $15.00, Family is $20.00 and allows for two members of the family living at the same address voting privileges and Senior membership 65 years or older for $10.00.
- You must commit to attending monthly meetings which are held in the evening and last between 60 to 90 minutes depending on the agenda.
- You must be willing to help with fundraising events. Each fundraiser we host requires a Board Member to chair it as representative of our organization. This can be a challenging responsibility depending on the event, but we do work as a team so there is always help and support. Apart from public donations, Fundraising is our main source of revenue and most important to the organization’s existence.
If you feel you could be an asset to our team, either as a member of our board or as a much needed volunteer, please contact us or attend the AGM.
