FAVA’S EXHIBITION SUITE
9722 102 ST NW
Wish you were on the board, or part of a committee at FAVA? Want to get a handle on what’s been going on over the past year? Looking to connect with other members of your community? All of these are great reasons to attend FAVA’s AGM on April 26th, 2017.
Drop by at 6pm for some light snacks and a chance to mingle. The meeting will get rolling at 6:30pm.
Specific outcomes of the AGM include:
1) Membership Upgrades
Each FAVA member is required to provide 12 hours of volunteer time annually on behalf of the co-op. Annual fees are assessed to each member. Associate Members wishing to be upgraded to General or General Members wishing to be upgraded to Producer memberships may apply at the Annual General Meeting.
We want you to be a part of shaping FAVA. As a member, it is your organization and we want to know what you think. Associate members aren’t able to vote. By upgrading to General or Producer, you have more opportunity to have a say in the functioning of FAVA. Your membership fees also drop from $89.25 to $68.25(General) or $42.00(Producer). If you are unsure if it would be a good time for you to upgrade, give us a call at the office.
In order to become a General Member:
– you have been involved in the co-op by volunteering at least 24 hours in the year you are upgrading, have been an Associate member for at least 12 months, have participated in a workshop or program, and actively participate in FAVA productions.
In order to become a Producer Member:
-you have at least 48 hours of volunteer time in the year you are upgrading, have been a General member for at least 12 months, are making a significant contribution to the co-op and are developing a body of work.
2) Board Elections for the following positions:
Four Board of Directors positions are up for (re)election:
i. Vice President
ii. Communications Chair
iii. Film Chair
iv. Exhibition & Distribution Chair
For more information about the roles and responsibilities of board and committee positions, please contact Jaro Malanowski at jaro[at]avatarmedia.ca
3) Committee Positions
Members can volunteer to be on the following committees:
4) Annual Reports from Staff and Board
FAVA staff and board members will present a brief report on activities pertinent to their role within the organization.
5) FAVA TV Royalties
Our annual payment of FAVA TV royalty fees will take place. In order to save the cheque processing fees on these very small amounts, we will be paying out royalties to the producing artist; annually, in person, in cash, at the AGM. So, if you have recently added your work to FAVA TV (May 2016 – April 2017) or if you didn’t get your royalties last year, come on out to the AGM.
6) FAVA Raffle Tickets for sale
FAVA’s running a raffle through to our Summer Party in the end of August. Here’s a great chance to buy a ticket or three for your chance to win $1000 VIA Rail Voucher.
