Special Meeting after Practice to Ratify Board

A special meeting is called for Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 11:45 at Delta United Church, 47 Ottawa St., South, Hamilton, Ontario.

This meeting will be to ratify a slate of members who have agreed to serve on the Board of Directors of Hamilton Sings! Community Choir.

Current Board Members (who are willing to continue to serve):
  • Jill Detlor, President
  • Anna Camara, Secretary
  • Tom Ciancone, Treasurer & signing officer
  • Susan Noakes, signing officer
  • General Members: Andrea Kurzfield, Bob Edmonds, Brenda Atkinson, Margaret Gauthier, Susan Yazdani
  • Ex-officio (advisory & non-voting): Sue Crowe Connolly, Hanna Bech Mathieson, Agnes Chelminska
We currently have nine voting members on the Board of Directors.  At our last meeting we discussed having a roster of twelve to allow for rotation on and off the Board, yet would allow for some continuity.  It is an exciting time of development for our choir.
If you are interested in serving, the Board currently meets from 7:00 – 8:45 on the first Monday of every month, with the exception of September and January when they meet on the second Monday, and there is no meeting in August.
Please reply to this email if you would like your name to stand on the slate of Directors.  Nominations may also be made from the floor.
On behalf of the Board,
Jill Detlor, President
