Annual General Meeting

AGM 2020 Board of Director's Report
Please check back for information on the 2021 Annual General Meeting.

There are four groups of people who will attend the 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
