Due to the nature of the 2020 AGM, the agenda will be significantly reduced. The three resolutions will be referred to the Board for disposition and, in the event the sponsoring counties are not satisfied with the disposition of the Board, they will have the right to resubmit their resolutions to AGM 2021 without penalty.
There are four groups of people who will attend the 2020 4-H Nova Scotia AGM and all have an important role to play in determining the path 4-H Nova Scotia will take over the next year:
- 4-H Nova Scotia Board of Directors: This group of people is the governing body of 4-H Nova Scotia. They meet regularly throughout the year and make decisions to help keep the business of 4-H Nova Scotia going. They bring to the provincial table issues and concerns from regions and help ensure decisions made provincially are in the best interest of the province as a whole. They follow specific terms of reference and are selected at the annual AGM.
- AGM Voting Delegates: This group is chosen to represent their county at the 4-H Nova Scotia Annual Meeting and have a very specific role to play. Delegates to Annual General Meeting are required to give a detailed report back to their Counties.
- AGM Observers: Observers come to the annual meeting to learn, so that the following year they may choose to come as a voting delegate. Observers will sit at a separate table and cannot comment or vote during the formal part of the meeting. The annual meeting can be overwhelming for first-time delegates so coming as an observer helps counties prepare for the following year’s meeting. As with all 4-H events, observers will have the opportunity to talk and learn with delegates from across the province. 4-H County Councils are responsible for covering the cost of Observers.
- NSDA Staff: There will be an NSDA staff member attending the 4-H Nova Scotia Annual Meeting. They are ex-officio members and do not vote. Their role is to ensure they have the correct information for program planning for the upcoming 4-H year and they will also provide clarification where necessary on projects or programs.
We have requested each County register the following:
- 1 volunteer delegate
- 1 member delegate
- 1 observer
