The annual general meeting (AGM) is the mandatory yearly meeting of NBE’s membership.

At the AGM, the Board of Directors present an annual report containing information for members about the Association's performance over the past year and strategies for the future. The AGM also includes election of Honorary and Board members.

Any business required by a member to be considered at AGM must be submitted in writing to the Secretary at least 60 days before the AGM.

 

The AGM is held virtually in September. Confirmation of the date/time will be announced here and on social media.

All members of the Board of Directors must resign annually, and nominations are invited for each position. 

Nominations to the Board of Directors must be submitted using the Nominations to the NBE Board of Directors form. Written nominations should be received at least 60 day prior to the AGM. The remaining vacant posts will be filled from the floor at the AGM.

Each nomination must include the consent of the nominee and be supported by two seconders. All nominees, their proposers and the seconders must be current members of NBE at the time of nomination and election at AGM otherwise the nomination shall become void.
