23rd Annual AOWMA Convention & Trade Show @ Online
Feb 9 – Feb 11 all-day
The AOWMA’s theme for the 2021, “into the future; embrace change’ is a timely one.  Over the past several months, all of us have had to embrace a new way of socializing and doing business.  We challenge you to embrace that change by participating in the virtual format of the 2021 convention and trade show.
While we will not have the ability for in-person networking that is so valuable at the show, we are creating great opportunities for live question and answer periods both in the trade show “hall” and during and after the presentations.
Chat rooms will be available for attendees to post topics on the ‘bulletin board’ and invite discussion.
Vendors will be provided the opportunity to host webinars about their products and services, as well as provide appointments to directly speak with attendees.  Videos, power points and live chat will all be part of the trade show activities.
The convention schedule will provide workshops and educational sessions on practical and technical topics, as well as exploring ongoing wastewater research.
We invite you Into the Future: Embrace Change!

Annual General Meeting @ online
Feb 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

All AOWMA members in good standing are invited to attend the Virtual Annual General Meeting being held on February 11, 2021.

NOMINATIONS:

Nominations may be submitted in advance of the AGM or from the floor during the election portion of the meeting.

According to Bylaw Section 6.2.1, a nominee must be an active member who has been in good standing for at least two consecutive years.  Nominees for the Executive Committee positions (President, Vice-President or Secretary/Treasurer) must have already served on the Board of Directors for one preceding year.

According to Bylaw Section 6.2.2, all nominations must be supported by a seconder and a third.  This means that any nomination a member brings forward MUST be supported by two other members in good standing.  There is no limit to the number of nominations that can be brought forward.

NOMINATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE FOLLOWING POSITIONS:

President                     Director                     Director                   Director

TERM OF OFFICE:

Those elected to the Board of Directors at the 2021 AGM will hold those positions for two years; term of office to complete in 2023.

REQUIREMENTS OF A BOARD MEMBER:

Generally, the Board operates as a governance entity, meaning that it sets high level strategic direction as opposed to having a direct hand in the day-to-day activities of the operation.  Directors should be prepared to attend a minimum of one meeting every two months, either in person in Red Deer or by video conference.  Directors will also be expected to serve on one or more committees to provide more direct guidance regarding key association strategic objectives.

Board members are not paid, however reasonable expenses are reimbursed for travel and meals when attending Board meetings or other sanctioned association activities.
