Calgary Society for Christian Education
Fall 2020 AGM
November 17, 2020
HAS BEEN MOVED TO DECEMBER 1, 2020
VIRTUAL TOWN HALL via ZOOM REMAINS NOVEMBER 26
Dear Society Members,
As you may know, local pandemic rules prevented the CSCE from holding its Annual General Meeting last May. While the work of the current board continued, the necessity of conducting the business of the Society with its members (as required by law) remained outstanding. Because a virtual meeting and vote were not possible earlier, we have chosen to move the formal business of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to our traditional “Fall Society Meeting” date.
Since announcing our in-person meeting for November 24, more stringent rules and recommendations have been imposed to help curb the “second wave” of covid in our province. In consideration of these efforts, we have moved the AGM - the meeting portion that includes official business of the Society and the election of a new board member - to DECEMBER 1, This falls outside the current two week restriction period.
We will, however, keep the virtual town hall meeting for November 26 in its originally scheduled time and date. At that time we will share important updates on CCS plans and activities, including the proposed secondary expansion project.
Because the December 1 meeting will be conducted on site and in-person using best preventative practices, we ask that members who wish to be part of our quorum on December 1, RSVP using this link to SignUp Genius.
The CSCE Board will continue to monitor the situation, and provide updates on any changes that may occur due to pandemic restrictions or recommendations.
Below, on this page, we have provided an updated Agenda to reflect these changes.
This package also contains details of this two-part meeting including AGM registration and video conferencing links. Before participating in the AGM on December 1, please review the enclosed information on all business items, including the biography of our current board nominee, and a proposed bylaw amendment that will provide us with more flexible meeting and voting options going forward. We welcome your comments and suggestions on any materials or the meetings in general. Please send them to email@example.com.
Thank you for adapting with us to meet these important governance and operating requirements of our Society. We look forward to sharing more with you during these important meeting opportunities.
On behalf of the CSCE Board,
Ken DeWyn - Executive Director
CSCE Fall Society Meeting 2019 (as emailed on Tues, Nov 12 to Society Members)
Founded by the Calgary Society for Christian Education, Calgary Christian School is a faith-based Alternative Program operating within the Palliser School Division.
Each family with a child enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 12 must maintain a membership in the Society. The Society has an elected Board of Directors as well as Society Staff that work together to direct the operational aspects of the school.
The Society holds, at a minimum, two annual meetings for members and supporters. There are voluntary advisory councils comprised of parents, staff and supporting members to offer support and information on educational, operational, financial and community relations matters.
This governance model provides parents and supporters the opportunity to actively participate in providing quality Christian education for the students at CCS.
Society Board members are elected individuals who are passionate and skilled to provide leadership and see that the mission and vision of Calgary Christian School is realized. Our current Board Members are:
- Gord VanVliet, Chair
- Gwen Uittenbosch, Vice Chair
- Steven Kroeker, Treasurer
- Iris Charabin, Secretary
- Lindy Couillard, Director
- Cheryl Grant, Director
- Harry Nutma, Director
