ESIS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT
Tuesday May 23rd, 7:00 – 9:00pm
Crawford Bay HallThe whole community is invited and each subscriber-account
in good standing will have a vote.
In preparation for this year’s Annual General Meeting, the ESIS Board would like to hear from its Subscribers and what they would like out of the upcoming meeting. The purpose for the survey is to help us make best use of our time together at the AGM. Please respond prior to May 10th, 2017. Collected responses will be anonymously themed used to help form the agenda, which will be emailed one week prior to the AGM.
Seeking Board Members
The ESIS Board is still seeking an “expression of interest” from those who might be interested in joining the ESIS Board of Directors. This is an Operational Board, meaning directors are responsible for organizational governance as well as some operational tasks. We are seeking a commitment that requires monthly meetings as well as some work in-between.
As the society seeks to maximize both skills and geographical diversity of its Board members, our current Board needs include expertise in: Internet Technologies & Networking, Finances, Engineering, Marketing & Communications, Project Management, and Human Resources. We welcome potential Board members from all geographies served by ESIS, such as: Crawford Bay, Gray Creek, Riondel Rd, Kootenay/Pilot Bay, Boswell, etc.
If you are interested, please submit your expression of interest to the Board before May 10th (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include brief synopsis of skills you bring to the table, where you live, your availability throughout the year, and any other information you think would be helpful for the nominating committee. And if you think someone you know might be a good fit, please suggest they submit an expression of interest (do not submit someone else’s name for nomination!). The Board will act as nomination committee by vetting expressions of interest to maximize diversity and needed skills, and then presenting the nominees as a slate for voting at the AGM on Tuesday May 23rd.
Thank you in advance for your feedback and support.
