2019 Lotus Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019
Location: Lotus Sports Club, Barnet Marine Park
Time: 11:30 am

All Lotus members are encouraged to attend this very important meeting. This is your chance to give feedback on this year’s paddling programs and events and to thank those who contributed so much time to the club. At this meeting you will also elect your 2019/2020 Board of Directors who will be making plans for paddling programs for next year.

We are looking for people who are interested in being part of the Board of Directors. The directors are volunteers who represent the paddlers of the Lotus Sports Club and who make decisions to the benefit of the club and all of its members. It is a great way to be involved in your club and community.

The following two positions are filled automatically;

President – presides at all meetings and oversees the overall operations of the club. The past year’s vice-president, Tony Hodanic, will become this year’s president.

Past-President – provides continuity in the Board of Directors and works with the President on matters carried over from the previous year. The current president, Joe Vukasovic, will become the Past-President.

The following is a list of current directorships and a description of their responsibilities:

Vice-President – carries out the duties of the President in his/her absence. The vice-president will assume the
position of president in the following year – this person will be able to work with the executive, will become familiar with ongoing projects and directives, and can learn the role of the president in order to move into this position.
