On July 7, 2021, the Society’s membership gathered via video conference for the 14th Annual General Meeting. Members received reports on the activities of the 2020-21 fiscal year from Am Johal, President and Brian McBay, Executive Director, alongside a presentation of the Audited Financial Statements by Ross Gentleman, Treasurer. Furthermore, members moved to re-appoint Harbourside LLP as the Society’s Auditor for the 2021-22 fiscal year, and agreed to the re-election of Am Johal for a term of one year. The Society thanks all members for their ongoing support and their participation in the AGM and welcomes the returning Board Members of 221A.

Information about 221A’s Board of Directors

221A is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who have a responsibility for the management of the Society and for setting and ensuring the organization is meeting its charitable purposes. In practice, like many non-profit organizations, the Board of Directors place an emphasis on approval of policy and longer-term planning, delegating day-to-day responsibilities to the Executive Director and staff. In 2019, 221A’s membership made a Special Resolution, adjusting the Society’s Bylaws to establish terms of three years where Board Members serve for staggered terms of office such that approximately 1/3 of the Board of Directors shall be elected each year. The re-elected member joins Board Members Baharak Yousefi, Gillian Siddall, Simranpreet Anand, Julia Aoki, Jeff Derksen, Katy Young, and Ross Gentleman. The Society thanks Laura Kozak, for her many years of service. There are currently a total of 4 vacancies on the Society’s Board of Directors. This fall, 221A anticipates the appointment of new Board members to fulfill vacant terms.
