Your Chance to Get Involved.

By the Newswest Board.

The Newswest Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday Nov. 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hintonburg Community Centre in the Burnside room – upstairs.

The Newswest Board of Directors is comprised of 10 volunteer members from the Kitchissippi community, each of whom is elected for a 2 year term. The major time requirement is a monthly evening meeting about two weeks before each publication date. Meetings last approximately one to two hours, with no meetings in the summer months.

If someone does not serve out that term, a new member is elected for a 1 year term to replace them in their last year. We anticipate, and strive for, a 50% turnover in board membership each year.

This year there are five members up for re-election to a 2 year term, and 3 who have one year remaining in their terms.

Up for re-election are: Cheryl Parrott, Lorrie Marlow, Karen Secord, Allyson Domanski, and Paulette Dozois. Those with 1 year remaining are Gary Ludington, Wayne Rodney, and Pat O’Brien.

If everyone is willing to continue, or stands for re-election, we still only have 8 members. Ideally the board consists of ten members from across Newswest’s catchment area.

This year we will try to find 2 new board members to fill those vacancies. Hopefully new board members will come from the western part of Kitchissippi ward.
