Meetings don’t have to be boring.

At first, glance, attending a meeting may not be your first choice for a fun morning, but at IGNITE, we make it fun!

On Wednesday, March 29, at 11 a.m. IGNITE will hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM) virtually through Microsoft Teams. But what is the AGM?

IGNITE’s AGM is a yearly meeting that gets students involved by getting them to vote and participate in important decisions. By attending the AGM, you will hear more about the important work that IGNITE student leaders and staff worked on this year and what they plan for the upcoming school year.

Here is what’s on this year’s meeting agenda:

  • Approval of minutes of the special meeting of the members (September)
  • Motion to ratify the results of the 2023 Elections
  • Approval of bi-law amendments
  • Presentation of 2022-2023 IGNITE Impact Report
  • Presentation of IGNITE 2023-2024 Budget
  • Approval of 2023-2024 Financial Auditors

That all sounds interesting, but why should YOU attend?

How could you pass on an event when there is an opportunity to get free stuff?! This year, the first 150 students that register and attend the entire meeting will receive a $25 gift card to a food vendor(to be updated when they announce that vendor).
