Special resolution of the members of Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Manitoba Inc. (the “Corporation”)

Purpose of the Proposed Resolutions:

To amend the by-laws of the Corporation to reduce the number of Members required to be present in person to constitute a quorum to transact business at a meeting of the Members of the Corporation.

Currently, the by-laws of the Corporation require 25 or more Members present in person at a meeting of the Corporation to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business of the Corporation. In order to allow the Corporation to more easily achieve a quorum the Corporation’s board is recommending that the number of Members present in person be changed from 25 to 20 in Subsection 10.09 of By-Law No. 2/2014, being the General By-Law of the Corporation.

This proposed by-law revision is captured in proposed Amending By-Law No. 1/2020.

Below, please find attached a Proxy Form. If you will not be in attendance at the Annual Meeting, you may assign your voting privileges to another member in good standing, however it is not mandatory. Proxies should be returned to AFOA MB by February 18, 2020. Good standing is defined as membership dues for 2020 paid prior to Annual General Meeting commencement.
