Re: NOSDA 2021 Annual General Meeting



The 2020 NOSDA AGM was cancelled due to COVID-19. As we look forward to the 2021 AGM, COVID-19 is still a real concern, and we will need to host a virtual Annual General Meeting.

2021 NOSDA Chair Meeting

In order to prepare for a virtual 2021 NOSDA Annual General Meeting, the NOSDA Executive felt it was important to bring all 11 NOSDA Board chairs together to discuss NOSDA’s strategic directions for the upcoming year.

The NOSDA Chair meeting will occur on Monday May 17, 2021 and the DSB Board chair will be in attendance. 

NOSDA Virtual Annual General Meeting

The NOSDA Virtual AGM is scheduled for Tuesday June 22, 2021. At the AGM we will be electing all 3 NOSDA executive members as their terms all expire this year.

In accordance with the current NOSDA by-laws, the NOSDA Board shall consist of the Chair and the two Vice Chairs and that every effort should be made to ensure the Board reflects the regions NOSDA represents.

Qualification for NOSDA Board of Directors shall be individuals, eighteen or more years of age and shall, at the time of their election or within ten days thereafter and throughout the term of their office, be members of the Corporation.

If any of the DSB board members are interested in running for the NOSDA Board of Directors, please advise the DSB CAO.

In addition to electing the NOSDA executive, NOSDA will lay out its strategic direction for the upcoming year through a series of resolutions that will be tabled at the Virtual AGM


Staff are recommending the Board approve the attendance of the Board Chair and Vice Chair to the NOSDA virtual AGM to be held Tuesday June 22, 2021.
