COUNCIL WILL APPOINT THREE DIRECTORS AT
MCBRIDE COMMUNITY FOREST ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
OCTOBER 16, 2019

Applications will be received beginning August 26, 2019.

The Village of McBride, on behalf of the McBride Community Forest Corporation, will be hosting the 2019 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 where three directors to the Corporation’s Board will be appointed by the Community Forest’s Shareholder.
Council, representing the Village of McBride which is the Corporation’s sole shareholder, agreed that an appointment process would be the best way to fill the three open director positions. The intent is to provide representation from the community at large, focusing on members with forestry, financial and/or volunteer experience and local knowledge. (An appointment process is allowable under section 14.1 of the Corporation’s Articles of Incorporation). The Village will receive applications for director positions beginning Monday, August 26, 2019 with a deadline for submissions by Friday, September 20, 2019. More information on the application process and applicant requirements will be made available in the coming weeks on the Village’s website at www.mcbride.ca.

The Annual General Meeting will be held at the Robson Valley Community Centre, located at 441 Columbia Street on October 16, 2019 at 7:00 pm and is open to the public. Council and the board of directors of the Corporation thank the public for their patience as preparations were made for this important upcoming meeting.

Council continues to be committed to ensuring the vital community resource of the Community Forest Corporation continues to thrive to the benefit of all of McBride’s citizens.
