November 20th, 2012
Dear Members of Congregation Shir Libeynu,
Our sixth Annual General Meeting is being held on Sunday, December 2nd, 2012. We will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. The AGM is taking place in Room 318 (not Room 218, as previously announced) at the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (750 Spadina Avenue at Bloor and Spadina).
All members of Shir Libeynu are entitled to vote at the AGM. If you cannot attend the AGM, you may send in your proxy by clicking here. Your proxy authorizes someone else to vote on your behalf and can be signed over to a member or non-member of your choice or it can be signed over to the chair of the AGM. We encourage you to send in your proxy if you can't attend in order to ensure that we make quorum (5% of our membership).
Because children are considered fully responsible Jews at the time of their bar or bat mitzvahs, if membership was purchased for children thirteen years of age or older and/or who have had a bar or bat mitzvah, they are entitled to attend and vote at our AGM. If the membership status of a young person in your family is not clear, please e-mail us at email@example.com or leave a message at 416-465-5488.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Out of the nine members currently on the board, eight plan to return in 2013. Board member at large Rochelle Holt is retiring, having completed her three-year term. We are delighted that Jessica Miller is standing for election to the board. The current board is in agreement that, for now, nine is the optimal number of members. However, our by-laws permit as many as eleven board members. If you are a current member of Shir Libeynu and 18 years of age or older, you are eligible to run for a position on the board. If you would like to do so, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 416-465-5488. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, November 27th. Please read about the responsibilities of board members.
