The Annual General Meeting is a great opportunity to reconnect with the Riding Association, get filled in on the events of the past year, hear the keynote address, participate in elections, and provide input.
The AGM is open to anyone who wants to attend, but in order to stand for election and most importantly, to vote, you must be a member in good standing, residing in the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore, or Belcarra). Memberships are free for people aged 14-25; for those older, the cost is a $10 donation. Please visit the BC Greens website to get signed up: https://www.bcgreens.ca/membership
There are executive positions open this year for anyone interested in running, and we are also looking for people to participate in non-executive roles, particularly around communications and general volunteering.
So please mark your calendar for May 17th and very importantly, if you are interested in running for the executive or would like more information, please email us at [email protected]. We would love to hear from you!
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
