A Special General Meeting will be held on April 17, 2018 at 7:00 pm at the Calgary Crowfoot Coop, 35 Crowfoot Way NW.
Only business stated in the Agenda will be open for debate.
1. Motion to Transfer Funds from the Calgary Blizzard Foundation to the Facility Fund.
At the Annual General Meeting on December 6, 2016, a motion was passed to establish the Calgary Blizzard Foundation. The Foundation’s goal was to help fund items such as soccer scholarships, traveling grants and player awards under a tax-deductible structure. To create the Foundation there was a recommendation that a minimum of $250,000 be earmarked for this purpose. The establishment of the Foundation has not occurred and as such, a motion is required to release the earmarked funds of $250,000 from the Calgary Blizzard Foundation to the Facility Fund. Funds transferred back to the Facility Fund shall only be used by the Blizzard Club in pursuit of an indoor facility. The Blizzard board is actively seeking a permanent home for the Club and is currently investigating several encouraging options.
2. Motion to amend the Blizzard Soccer Bylaw as submitted
Article XII – Election of the Board of Directors and Appointments
2. Members who wish to be elected must be nominated by another member in good
standing and over the age of majority and such nomination must be made to the Nomination Committee of the Board of Directors not less than 14 days before the Annual General Meeting.
Proposed Amendment: Strike out “14” and insert “21”.
Rational for changing the bylaw:
The former wording is not workable with Article VIII section 1, as that section contemplates notifying members of the Annual General Meeting 21 days before the Annual General Meeting.
