Equestrian Canada (EC) would like to advise the community that the conclusion of the 2017 EC Annual General Meeting (AGM) has been scheduled to be held on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017 beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
The 2017 EC AGM commenced on Sept. 25, 2017, with the current and incoming EC Board of Directors and 27 EC Voting Members attending via web conference, and the community invited to tune in through Facebook livestream.
One of the AGM agenda items was the acceptance of the 2016-17 EC Financial Statements. EC President and AGM Chair, Peggy Hambly apologized for the late sending of the Audited Financial Statements, because of circumstances beyond EC’s control.
Following an in-depth discussion, a motion to defer consideration of the financial statements was made to comply with the 21-day notice requirement under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act. The motion was carried following a vote that saw 12 in favour and 11 opposed.
As a result of this motion, the conclusion of the 2017 EC AGM was adjourned to Oct. 13, 2017, when the EC Board and Voting Members will meet via conference call to accept the 2016-17 EC Financial Statements.
The AGM conclusion conference call will not be broadcast, but an update regarding the outcome will be distributed to the community.
