The Annual General Assembly is a meeting of the membership required by the IWWT Constitution. It is an annual business event hosted by IWWT to share with the membership what the company and Board of Directors have done in the name of the organization.
At the June 2022 AGA, we were not able to meet the 25-member quorum required to host an AGA. Without quorum, the Assembly cannot pass the proposed changes to the Constitution or hold an election. The Board of Director reports that were presented are available on the page below which you can view and download.
At the October 2022 AGA, the main focus of the Assembly will be discussing and voting on the proposed changes to the Constitution, the 2021-22 audit, and election for the 8 open seats for the IWWT Board of Directors.
The role of a voting delegate is to vote on what will be going into the Constitution, have the opportunity to be nominated by two people for a board position, and vote for the board members the following day. A Voting Delegate votes on any motion or resolution that arises from the assembly during the AGA. As per the IWWT Constitution currently, in effect, there are 4 Voting Delegates per First Nation reserve and 7 Voting Delegates to represent the geographic zones of the members living off-reserve.
Observers have the opportunity to voice their opinion, however, they cannot vote unless a motion comes from the floor to accept Observers as Voting Delegates to achieve quorum. If such a motion is passed, each Observer nominated must be approved to become a Voting Delegate by a motion from the assembly.
Please take note:
Voting Delegates from outside the Fredericton area receive paid accommodations at the hotel contracted by IWWT. Anyone living more than 2 hours away can request accommodations for the Friday night before the event.
Please note: Just like the June AGA, anyone within the Fredericton area (Fredericton, Kingsclear, St. Mary's, Oromocto) is not eligible to receive paid accommodations.
Staff will be booking the rooms, so if you need a particular room (pet-friendly, you + driver, etc)
All Voting Delegates receive per diem travel expenses, including km, meal, and incidental allowance, based on how far they have to travel. Voting Delegates living within the Fredericton area and those attending the event on Zoom are eligible to receive a $100 honorarium in place of travel.
Observers are not eligible to receive travel expenses or honorarium, unless they become a Voting Delegate through a motion made and approved by the Assembly floor.
These reports were presented at the June 2022 Annual General Assembly by the Board of Directors.
***May include updates before the October AGA.
