NCVA 2017 Annual General Meeting

Note: This event has been postponed until further notice. Thank you for your patience!

The National Capital Vegetarian Association will be holding its eighth Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 2 p.m. It will take place at the party room at 101 Richmond Road in Ottawa. We will review the achievements we’ve made since the last AGM and look towards the future of the NCVA.

All people who have purchased NCVA memberships between June 19, 2016 and June 18, 2017 are entitled to attend and to vote in the AGM. If you are uncertain as to your eligibility, please email our membership coordinator at ncvamemberships@gmail.com. You may still become a member between now and June 18 and attend the AGM.

As per our bylaws, there will be an election of the board of directors and nominations are currently being accepted. Nominations must be received by 11:59 p.m., June 16. Only NCVA members in good standing may be nominated or make a nomination. You can nominate yourself or someone else. There are at least five director positions open, all of which are one-year terms.

Nominations can be e-mailed to ncvasecretary@gmail.com.

It would be very helpful if you RSVP’d your attendance to ncvasecretary@gmail.com, as we need a certain number of attendees to make quorum.

Thank you for supporting the NCVA’s efforts to make Ottawa a more veg-friendly place.

Join us at our screening of “What the Health” on May 24, 2017!

On May 24, 2017, the NCVA (in partnership with Strawberry Blonde Bakery) will be screening the documentary What the Health!

You may have heard about this documentary before– it’s by the creators of the well-known documentary Cowspiracy. What the Health is about “the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick”, according to the documentary’s website.

After the documentary screening, there will be a panel discussing the issue further.

For more information on the event and to get your tickets (admission by donation), please see the Eventbrite Page. Additionally, you may wish to share the event through the event page on Facebook.
