This meeting is open to all members of the Manitoba Writers’ Guild. If you plan to attend, please email manitobawritersguild3@gmail.com for the Zoom instructions.

What is an AGM?

For those who are new to the Manitoba Writers’ Guild, our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a time to:
1. Meet the current Board Members, who give their yearly reports about what they have done over the last year.
2. Share your views on new policies and programs they might want to implement
3. Vote in new Board Members.

We are always looking for additional Committee Members so, if you want to help plan Programs, work with the Financial Committee, have ideas about how to promote the Guild through social media, or want to communicate with fellow rural members, please let us know. We can use the extra hands to help lessen our load!

The AGM is open to anyone who’d like to peek behind the curtain, meet other members and help us make decisions on what the Guild might do for you going forward. However, to vote on any issues that might be brought up at the AGM or vote for in-coming Board Members, you must have joined or renewed your membership 60 days prior to the AGM (by August 15th, 2022) and be over 18 years of age.

Normally, the AGM is held at a public place but, despite things ‘opening up a bit’, we decided to hold the meeting virtually, like we did last year. This also allows those who live outside of Winnipeg to take part.

In order to ratify any issues and officially vote in new Board Members, we must have quorum (10% of our voting membership) in attendance, so please help us continue to keep the Guild running smoothly by supporting us and attending the AGM.

*Don’t forget to ask for the Zoom instructions so you can attend!*

Once registered, you will receive an agenda, minutes from the last AGM, reports from all the Committees and other documents pertinent to the meeting, such as the info on potential new Board Members. Hope to see you there!
