Annual General Meeting

You are invited to attend the Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club’s virtual

Annual General Meeting Via ZOOM
Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 7:00pm EDT

Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club is dedicated to providing opportunities for children to learn and play Canada’s national summer sport, make friends, and enjoy all the richness that our sport offers. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely upon the participation of volunteers to run our programs. None of this is possible without our volunteers. The AGM is a chance for members to review all the programs that ran in the period since the prior AGM, voice concerns and recommend improvements, vote on proposed by-law amendments and participate in the election of candidates seeking Board positions.

This year we were faced with an unprecedented set of circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and our AGM will also reflect that. Despite having fewer programs to recap, we will still be reviewing our finances and elect members to fill our Board positions in preparation for next year. It has always been the Beaches culture to have in-person AGMs, so we ask for your patience and support as we make the necessary transition to a virtual AGM.

To participate in the virtual AGM, you will be required to PRE-REGISTER by Monday, October 26th at 11:59 pm EDT.
TBLC Members (defined by the Bylaws are composed of all registrants in good standing from both 2019 and 2020 programs, with the exception of those players who would have aged out in 2019, and those players who were granted a release for 2020, plus all volunteers (e.g. coaches, managers, board members)) are eligible to participate in the AGM and vote in the Board elections. Please note that each member will be required to register separately (i.e. both parents of one player are eligible to vote individually) and will need to log into the proceedings with their own unique link, rather than sharing access with another Member.
Please complete this form to register. A unique Zoom link will be sent to registered individual Members on the morning prior to the AGM and will include all voting instructions.

The following Board positions are currently up for election. The Board encourages anyone interested in any of the available positions listed below to run. Descriptions/responsibilities of Board positions can be found in the TBLC By-Laws, Article 6.

The following named positions are all 2-year terms:

  • President (eligible only to current members of the Board of Directors)

We will be opening the floor to accept nominations for board positions from October 6th until October 22nd at 11:59 pm EDT. If you would like to nominate someone (including yourself) for one of the Board positions listed above, please complete the following form.
No nominations shall be accepted after the close of the survey, nor during the virtual AGM itself.

In order to maintain continuity during the pandemic, the Board intends to recommend to its Members at the AGM the adoption of the following resolution: “Based on the current circumstances created by COVID-19, be it resolved that all current Board Members extend their terms and serve for one additional year, when there is no opposition to that incumbent.”In other words, if there is no election necessary for a position due to the absence of a nominee, the incumbent has agreed to serve an additional year.

We look forward to you joining us on-line and considering becoming involved in the historic and proud Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club.

Hope to see you there!
TBLC Board of Directors
