Did you have a good summer?
It definitely was not a normal summer for us. The good news is that while our club’s Volunteers were hampered from getting out on the trails by our government’s pandemic response, we managed to keep the bulk of our trails maintained and open to our riders. We also deferred our spring annual general meeting (AGM) to the autumn. Since the Government of Ontario still recommends staying at home and not gathering in large groups, we will be holding this year’s AGM using online conferencing.
Join us online for DGATV’s annual general meeting. Connect with Executive members and other ATV and side-by-side enthusiasts. Learn about our club and what we do for you. Get your questions answered. Vote for next season’s Directors and/or volunteer to join the Executive!
DGATV’s Board of Directors consists of nine (9) Directors with two (2) year terms. Theoretically, no more than 50% of the Board should come up for election each year so ideally DGATV never has an entirely new Board of Directors.
However, this year seven (7) Directors positions are up for election with a mix of one (1) and two (2) year terms.
Candidates must be a DGATV member on record for at least three (3) months.
Under the current by-law the Board needs at least four (4) new candidates. Three (3) of the current Directors have agreed to stand again.
If four (4) new candidates do not step forward, the Board will officially recognize that keeping nine (9) Directors positions filled is a difficult task and will put forward a resolution to reduce the number of Directors positions from nine (9) to seven (7), reverting to DGATV’s Board of Directors structure prior to 2017. With acceptance of the resolution, two (2) new candidates will be sought accordingly.
