Calendar of Events
Elections and Nominations
As you know, Branch Elections are
being held on April 24. Nominations
officially opened on March 13, and
will be closing seven days before
the election, so if you want to
serve on the executive in the next
fiscal year, there is still time to
get two fellow Legion members to
nominate you, and to put your
nomination form in the box beside
the nominations board in the Lounge.
Then the next important job is to
attend the election meeting of
members on April 24th and take part
in the decmocratic process of
nominating your executive committee
for the 2018-2019 year.
All Branch members who are in good
standing are eligible to nominate
any other Strathcona member, or to
be nominated and are definitely
eligible to vote.
Our Branch Secretary, Helen Fraser,
has decided she will not be
continuing as Secretary when the new
Branch fiscal year begins on June
1st. This will leave a large gap in
rank of Branch Officers as Helen has
held the position for several years
and has served us outstandingly
This means we will be needing
someone to fill the position come
June and we invite our members to
consider taking on the Secretarial
duties. As mentioned above, the
Secretary is an Officer of the
Branch and is one of the cheque
signers. It is an appointed position
so the person filling it does not
need to stand for election.
Briefly, the duties of the Secretary
are to (a) keep a record of the
proceedings of the meetings of the
Branch and Executive Committees; (b)
at every meeting to have the proper
documentation relative to the
business that may be transacted at
the meeting; (c) be responsible for
the maintenance, retention and
safekeeping of all records.
Regarding record keeping Helen has
developed a series of forms that
make the task easier and which she
will be pleased to pass on.
As a final note, the position of
Branch Secretary is not restricted
to females. Many Legion Branch
Secretaries are men.
If you are interested in discussing
the position, please send an email
to Jim Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org and
we will arrange to have a chat.
