What is an AGM?

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a meeting of the general membership of an organization. PPAC’s membership consists of parents and/or guardians of registered swimmers. The agenda of an AGM may include electing the Board of Directors Executive, making important decisions regarding the organization, and informing the members of previous and future activities. At this meeting, the membership may receive copies of the organizations accounts, review fiscal information for the past year, and ask any questions regarding the direction the organization will take in the future.

This meeting is a great opportunity for everyone to connect and find out a little about what happens “behind the scenes” with the club. This is also a great opportunity to find out about volunteer opportunities within the club! Please note that those in attendance will not be selected or nominated by others to take on volunteer roles.
