Regarding voting for members to sit on the Board of Staff Arts:

We have received appeals from members of Staff Arts who are unable for compelling personal or professional reasons to attend the AGM on November 19 but who would like the opportunity to stand as a candidate for election to the Board and/or who wish to vote.
Upon consideration, the Board has agreed to the following:


  1. A member wishing to stand as a candidate but who is unable for compelling personal or professional reasons to attend the AGM may make an appeal to the Board to be excused from that requirement. That person must meet all other requirements and must provide an explanation to the Board for that excusal. The final decision rests with the Board.
