Annual general meeting
The MLOA’s annual general meeting will take place on Dec. 12, 2017, as part of our 2017 convention.
This year’s AGM will follow on the heels of our members-only strategy session on Tuesday afternoon. Members will elect directors for the coming year, and debate policy resolutions. There will also be some discussion of MLOA’s board organization and our association’s role and focus going forward, as well as the creation of some new MLOA member committees.
Lodge and outfitter members are welcome to propose resolutions for debate at our annual general meeting.
Resolutions must be seconded by another member. They will be accepted anytime ahead of our AGM, as well as at the AGM itself. Resolutions that pass become official MLOA policy.
Resolution forms are available here: Resolution Form
MLOA board elections
Four positions on the MLOA board will be up for election at our 2017 annual general meeting:
Director (Northwest zone): Vacant
Director at large: Mike Adey
Director at large: Paul Conchatre
Director (allieds): Brian Locoshavich
All incumbent directors are welcome to run again for another term. Any other MLOA member who wishes to run for any one of the open positions is welcome to put their name forward as well.
We will accept nominations at any time prior to our AGM, as well as at the AGM itself. Please contact our office to make an official nomination or to put your own name forward.
If any of the positions is contested (ie has more than one nominee interested) then delegates in attendance at the AGM will vote. If only one candidate is nominated for any of the positions, that candidate will be acclaimed.
Please note there will be some discussion at this year’s AGM about a board reorganization that could include reducing the overall number of directors.
