Attention PAC Execs: COPACS AGM - Proxy forms

Hi all PACS,

The BCCPAC AGM is coming up on May 1st. If no one from your PAC can attend, COPACS can vote on your behalf via a proxy. To that end, you need to send proxy forms to us to confirm your vote.

Please see details below.


Registration & Proxy Forms by April 19 - Review Candidates & Resolutions

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for members will be held virtually on Saturday May 1, 2021. While the AGM is free to attend, current members must register in advance.  And a reminder that while only one individual will be eligible to vote per the Proxy Form submitted, any individuals of that member PAC or DPAC can attend the AGM (there's no limit).  However, each person who is planning to attend the AGM (voting or not) must register by April 19.

Our AGM will include board elections, review of budget and financials and the discussion and adoption of new Resolutions.
