PROCESS FOR MAKING SUBMISSIONS TO THE 2017 AGM
Submissions by members at PEO’s AGM are a vehicle for members in attendance to express their views on matters relating to the affairs of the association, but are not binding on council. A member submission should clearly describe the issue being addressed and indicate how it advances the objects of the Professional Engineers Act, which define the mandate and responsibilities of PEO. To ensure member submissions receive proper consideration at the AGM, members must submit typed submissions to Registrar Gerard McDonald, MBA, P.Eng., by no later than 4:00 p.m., Friday, April 7, 2017. Submissions must be signed by the mover and seconder, either of whom must be present at the meeting. Submissions will only be accepted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A guidance document on the content and format of submissions is available from the AGM page of the PEO website at www.peo.on.ca. Submissions received by the April 7, 2017 deadline will be published on the AGM page of the PEO website and included as part of the registration package.
Member submissions will be referred to the Executive Committee or council for consideration after the AGM. The mover and seconder of a member submission will be invited to address the submission at the meeting at which the submission is to be considered.
