Annual General Meeting and NewfoundLUG Executive Elections

Every 2 years, the LUG holds elections for the voting members of the Executive Committee.  The Exec is busy throughout the year, keeping the LUG working behind the scenes.

The election this year will be during our Annual General Meeting on May 4th, 2022 at 7:30pm at the Rabbittown Community Centre.

As of April 20th, 2022 we will be opening nominations for the following positions:

  • President (Currently Stephen Churchill, elected in May 2020)
  • Vice President: Currently Patrick Barnes, appointed by Exec as per bylaws when the previous VP resigned)
  • Secretary/Treasurer: Currently Geoff Stevens, elected in May 2020)

If you cannot attend the meeting, you can still vote by allowing someone to vote in your place via proxy, or by attending via Zoom.

In addition, we will be voting on changing the bylaws to expand the Exec by 2 “At Large” positions.  If you wish to see the text of the changes, please reach out to Stephen Churchill or email newfoundlug@gmail.com.

Assuming this change passes, and in the interest of allowing nominations for these positions time to stand, we will hold the nominations and elections for these expanded roles to take place at the next meeting, time to be determined.

IMPORTANT – LUG Executive Election

At the May 4 meeting, the LUG Executive will be up for election.

The following positions will be voted on:

  • President (currently Stephen Churchill)
  • Vice President (currently Patrick Barnes)
  • Secretary: (currently Geoff Stevens)
  • 2 Executive At Large positions (proposed, see below)

If you would like to nominate yourself or another LUG Member for one of these positions, please contact one of us. Nominations formally open on April 20.

You must be have attended at least one event in the last year to be a nominee or to vote.

As part of the election process, we are proposing expanding the Executive to add two “At-large” positions. The proposal to expand the Exec will be voted on by the membership.

If the proposal is not supported by the membership, we will not hold the election for the “At Large” positions.

If the proposal passes, then we will also hold a single election for the two “At Large” members. The two nominees receiving the most votes will assume the roles.

If you can NOT attend the meeting, you can still be a nominee, and more importantly you can STILL cast your vote – voting is allowed via proxy – notify the Executive of who is holding/casting your proxy vote.

If there are any questions PLEASE reach out to the Executive!

LUGBulk 2022

Quick update for LUG Members!

What’s LUGBulk?

it’s a way for NewfoundLUG members to buy bulk LEGO parts for cheap – usually around 25-30% of the list prices for new parts.

How do I participate?

We will be posting a link to a survey, we’d like you to fill it in. You can just PM me your email address and tell me you’d like to participate, but the survey is more useful to us.

Whats the deadline?

We will be submitting our list at the end of October. Any individual that wants to participate needs to be ON THAT LIST. If your name is on the list, you can chose to not participate later, but if your name is not on the list you will NOT be able to participate.

What are the details I need to know, how does this work?

I’ll be hosting a FaceBook live session where I answer questions and talk about the details. I’ll try and schedule it for this week or early next. As always, you can ask an Executive member if you want more info as well!
