    2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM)

    Our 2020 VCMC Annual General Meeting will be held: Nov. 9th - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Due to the ongoing Covid social restrictions we'll meet online through ZOOM.

    *UPDATE: We've bought a zoom account so that we can host a large group session for longer than the 40min limit. We are going to email the link out to all the members. So check your email by Sunday. We'll probably send out another email on the day of too. I don't want to post a link here to avoid random coming to the meeting.

    2021 Directors Elections

    ELT Elections:

    I would also like to take this opportunity to invite all nominations (including self-nominations) for positions in the 2021 ELT. Please remember that our activities are volunteer run, and no one on the ELT are paid to do their jobs in leading the club and organizing the events. If you have been enjoying the results of these efforts, please consider joining the ELT and give back to the community that you have been part of.

    Please post your nominations below and I will update the post as they come in. There is no need to feel awkward about nominating yourself -- we welcome any interested member in helping the club. Prior experience is not necessary; only a passion for team work and a willingness to help are necessary. Being a member of the ELT is a great way to get to know how things work "behind the scenes". Additionally, this type of executive experience is highly valuable for those looking to bolster their resumes and built their organizational experience.

    I nominate Chano Hwang for 2021 Communication Director.

      I volunteer as comm director too if needed. I’d be better at the corporate secretary part than the communication part and I’m strong administratively. I’m a Chartered Director and a CPA in two countries. Plus I’m a huge fan of the VCMC and happy to be a member.

          Hey Guys, I was wondering if you would be entertaining some sort of assistant on the Treasury end? I'm a CPA candidate at the moment and I would love to volunteer as a member of VCMC and help out behind the scenes.

          If not I'd like to self-nominate for Membership Director.
