Due to the Provincial Health Restrictions on large gatherings, it has been decided to reschedule our Annual General Meeting. Originally scheduled for Sunday February 27, 2022, the new date is Sunday March 27, 2022 at The Junction Pub from 11am to 1:30pm. The hope is by then we can gather in person. if not, a virtual AGM will be held on that date at that time.
Given the rescheduling, the voting requirement to be a VML Member in good standing for three months prior to the AGM has been reduced to two months. Memberships can be renewed on our website at: vancouvermeninleather.ca.
As you may recall from several of the past VML Annual General Meetings, the current club Bylaws need updating as they are very limiting and in some aspects, unclear. The Guideline Committee has been hard at work drawing-up proposed new Bylaws/Guidelines. Once complete, they will be distributed to VML Members in good standing prior to the AGM. At the AGM the proposed new Bylaws/Guidelines will be voted on. In order to conduct the vote, it is expected that an exception will need to be made to the quorum requirement in the current Bylaws. This will be further explained at the AGM.
Vancouver Men in Leather is important to all of us. The new updated Bylaws/Guidelines will allow the club to more readily adapt, thereby continuing to flourish and grow – even in challenging times like those that we find ourselves in.
