Members need an Information Meeting. Defer the 2020 AGM!
The announcement of a virtual Annual General Meeting on May 20, 2020, 7-8pm is the reason for this petition.
The MNGFC has experienced significant turnover in both staff and Board Directors over the past year. The numbers of both suggest there are serious underlying problems that need to be addressed. In addition, the financial viability of the the Co-op is concerning. Since early March the Board has been operating without the necessary quorum to make decisions.
As Member-Owners, we need a venue and the time necessary to be informed about, and to discuss, the future direction of OUR Co-op. Recent loosening of federal and provincial legislation allows the deferral of an AGM for up to 120 days following the official end of the provincial state of emergency.
We strongly petition:
1. Defer the AGM until we can have an in-person, public meeting.
2. Have a virtual members meeting (May 20 or possibly later) to discuss the current issues and ensure a true democratic process for the Member Owners of this Co-op.
