Scarborough Theatre Guild
2020-2021 Annual General Meeting
Hello Members and Friends of Scarborough Theatre Guild,
You are invited to attend the 2021 Scarborough Theatre Guild Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on gatherings, the AGM will be held online by ZOOM for all of our safety and well-being.
The AGM is an opportunity to make your STG membership count. Membership is so much more than paying a mandatory fee when cast in a show or being able to see Theatre Scarborough shows at a discount. You, as a member, have a vested interest in the organization, and in its future. In a sense you are ‘part owner’, and only you can ensure that the group thrives.
At the end of the 2019-20 season, the Board decided to allow all current members to retain their membership into the 2020-21 season without a fee. New members were charged a lower fee, all due to the fact that the pandemic made it unlikely that we would put on a show that season.
Therefore if you were a member at the last AGM, you are a member now and entitled to attend this AGM.
To register in advance for this meeting, please click on the link below:
After registering, you will be sent a confirmation email containing information about the meeting including the ZOOM link to join the AGM. The Zoom link will also have a phone-in option for those who prefer that method.
All the appropriate documents usually available at an in-person AGM will be sent via the STGAGM email address in a pdf format. Approximately one month prior to the meeting, the Agenda, and the Minutes of last year’s AGM, including the 2019-20 Financial Report and the President’s Remarks will be sent out. Approximately one week before the AGM, the Year in Review for the 2020-2021 season and a financial report will be distributed. All of these documents will also be posted on the Theatre Scarborough website. Should you wish to receive these documents by regular mail, please e-mail Len Henderson at email@example.com, or phone him at (905) 655-3605
We will also provide information with regard to critical motions that require a vote as well as information about those who wish to stand for Election to the Guild’s Board of Directors.
Election of the Board of Directors
One of the vital activities at the Annual General Meeting is the election of next year’s Board of Directors.
Members of STG’s Board are responsible for governing and supervising the policies and affairs of the Guild, its committees and officers, and carrying out the goals of the organization. They also contribute to Theatre Scarborough policy and direction.
The Board of Directors consists of a minimum of 8 to a maximum of 10 members. The elected Board Members then decide separately after the meeting who will fill which roles on the Board/Executive.
Currently, several members of the 2020-21 Board are willing to stand for re-election. However, there are still vacancies to be filled. This season will be like no other as we all work together to re-open our doors to the theatre-going public, and do so safely, and with an aim to make going to the theatre a great experience once again.
To nominate a member for the Board of Directors, or to indicate your interest in joining the Board, please contact Len Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 905 655-3605.
We look forward to seeing you on ZOOM for this important meeting – Wednesday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m.
Please Sign Up Today.
Len Henderson, President
