2024 Conference and AGM Announcement – July 2, 2024

As previously announced the 2024 Convention and AGM will be held September 17th – 20th at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino 1000 – 11500 – 35th Street SE, Calgary, Alberta T2Z 3W4, 403-236-7529.

As with previous conferences we will be conducting the Annual General Meeting which will take place Thursday September 19, 2024, at 1:00 PM MT. Members will have the opportunity to receive updates on the affairs of the association, vote on any proposed changes to the association’s By-Laws, and vote for members that are running for seats on the board of directors. This year’s election will be for three (3) Director seats and the President of the Board of Directors. As a reminder Section 3-5 of the CNAREA By-Laws states that “The President of CNAREA shall be elected at an annual general meeting of the association. Only a duly elected, present member of the current board of directors is eligible to become President.”

Designated members who are members in good standing are eligible to vote in the elections, nominate, and provide their proxy should they not be able to attend in-person or virtually. Section 9-7 of the CNAREA By-Laws states; “All voting members shall be permitted to vote by proxy authorized to another voting member. All authorizations of proxy votes must be in writing and be signed by the voting member giving their voting right to another member. Any voting member may hold up to a maximum limit of three (3) proxies and may vote those proxies on any single issue.”

We will once again be using the services of Data On The Spot Inc. and Simply Voting Software that specialize in AGM’s and elections for Non-Profit Associations.

Nominations for board of directors, and notification of voting by proxy will be available at cnarea.ca, Member Log in in the coming weeks.

This year is the first year that we have had a Convention Committee, and they are working hard to make this annual event memorable. Thanks again to Chris Grier, DAR Certified Appraisal Reviewer and Ronda Zang, DAR Certified Appraisal Reviewer for all their hard work.
