Event description

Description

Members of the Alliance Française de Seattle are cordially invited to attend its 2019 Annual General Meeting, taking place on Saturday, May 11th, 2019, at 10am at the Good Shepherd Center, room 223.

The assembly will listen to the financial and moral reports of the organization and sanction them with a vote. A vote will take place to elect one (1) new member of the Board of Directors. A vote will also take place to re-elect one (1) member of the Board of Directors.

For its decisions to be valid, the Annual General Meeting must consist of at least half of the members plus one member. The members can either be physically present or they may award proxy to another member:

- Only members over the age of 18 can vote.

- Members are allowed to vote by proxy only if they bring a signed proxy agreement, for up to 2 other members.

- For holders of a family membership, only one (1) member per family is needed to vote.

- For corporate members, only one (1) representative can vote.

If this quorum is not reached, the Annual General Meeting is convened on a later date, after an interval of at least fifteen days, at which time the decisions it makes will be valid, regardless of the level of attendance.


The Alliance Française de Seattle currently has one (1) seat open on its Board of Directors. Applications (resume and letter of intent) can be submitted until April 22, 2019 by email at info@afseattle.org. We are looking for a Francophone/Francophile person with previous experience in: teaching French as a foreign language, or promoting Francophone cultures, or running a nonprofit or with very specific relevant experience in finance, real estate, or legal affairs. Please note that the selection committee will review all applications and select a candidate by May 1, 2019. The selected candidate's biography will be available before the AGM's vote taking place on May 11, 2019.
