Cheema 2022 Annual General Meeting Agenda

Hello Cheema members.


We wanted to share some details in advance of this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). Here are the Agenda for the meeting and Minutes from last year’s AGM.


The AGM starts at 7pm on Thursday, December 8th, second floor of the new boathouse. We will be registering voters as they arrive; we'll be on-site to start registration at 6:30pm. Those who receive a ballot upon entry (or in some cases, more than one ballot) will be eligible to vote. ​We will have a list of voting members on-site. If you are not on the list you will not be eligible to vote, but you are still very welcome to attend the meeting. As a reminder, the following people are eligible to vote:

  • Current Board members
  • Anyone currently enrolled in (and fully paid for) a racing program
  • Anyone enrolled in (and fully paid for) a racing program between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022

It is one vote per racing member, or if the racing member is under 18 then one parent votes on their behalf -- details are in the by-laws. Racing program excludes the after-school and kiddie kayak programs.


Most of the voting will be done by show of hands. For the three contested positions on the Board of Directors (Commodore, Vice-Commodore and Diversity, Inclusion & Safe Sport), we’ll be doing a secret ballot. We will have prepared ballots which will be provided to each voting member at registration. We'll have a ballot box to collect the ballots. Votes will be counted by the Secretary, Treasurer and a scrutineer. Before the vote on the contested positions each candidate will have an opportunity to speak (3 minutes each). Once all six of the candidates have given their remarks, we'll open it up to questions and comments from members (1 question plus 1 follow-up per member).


​If you have any questions please contact Alana Patterson, Secretary, at


We hope to see you tomorrow night!
