2014 Board of Directors Election: Nomination Information & Forms

As you know, the Vancouver Tool Library is a cooperative: a member owned and operated organization working in your community. At our upcoming AGM on September 16th, 2014, our members will have the opportunity to share and celebrate what we’ve accomplished in our second year of operating and elect the incoming Board of Directors, key people who will be guiding the organization in 2014/2015.

Any VTL member over the age of 18 and in good standing with the organization is eligible for election to the board. According to our Rules and Policies, Directors are elected annually at our Annual General Meeting via this process:

  1. VTL Members interested in running for election to the Board of Directors become “Nominees” when they are nominated to run by five other VTL members (who each complete a “Nomination Form”) and submit a “Nominee Profile” to the Nominations Committee;
  2. The Nominations Committee verifies each Nominees’ eligibility to run in the election and declares all eligible Nominees as “Candidates” in the BOD elections (to qualify for election as a director, a member must, at the close of nominations, be 18 years of age or older and in good standing with the library);
  3. Nominations Committee notifies all VTL Members of the Candidate running this year;
  4. VTL members vote for their preferred Candidates at the AGM on September 16th, 2014.
