Each year the Region holds its Annual General Meeting in February, which is the first meeting of the cycle, and elects the majority of other committees in the region.
This circular outlines the processes for Branches to register delegates, nominate members for elected positions, submit motions & rule changes, and gives all timetables, deadlines, etc. I hope this information will be of assistance when planning and attending Branch meetings before the Regional Council AGM.
This year we are encouraging branches to register using the online registration process as much as possible. This is a two step process, including both completing the online form and then verifying your submission. If you have any access requirements that mean you need a hard copy, please email email@example.com
Last year we were encouraged to see an increase in the number of branches participating with Regional Council and I hope that trend continues in 2020!
