Board Nominations Open; volunteer for a Committee and more

Thank you for being a part of the Girls Rock Camp Victoria Community!

GRCVI invites you to attend the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, March 21st at 6:30pm at City Studio Victoria, 742 Johnson St. We will recap our 2017 camp program, renew memberships and accept membership fees for new members, announce the 2018 date for camp, elect members to the Board of Directors, vote to accept our revised BC Society Act Bylaws, talk about volunteer opportunities and more! The agenda can be viewed on our website here: 2018 AGM Agenda. Please RSVP by emailing hello@grcvi.ca or on our Facebook event page.

Can’t make it in person? You can Skype in to the meeting! If you are interested in this option please let email to let us know so we can provide you with details on how you can join in virtually. If you are unable to attend physically or virtually but still want to help us meet quorum for voting purposes, you may have a proxy bring your vote on your behalf. To enable these options a membership fee ($5) will need to be paid in advance. Please get in touch for details via email at hello@grcvi.ca.

Why should I be a member and attend the AGM?

Girls Rock Camp Victoria is a non-profit society and accountable to the BC Society Act in order to operate. As a member in good standing, your attendance helps us meet quorum to apply for government grants so we can exist to run our programs. The growth of our programs over the past five years shows that the work we do is needed and valued in our community. Help us continue to support girls in our community so they can build up their skills, knowledge and feel empowered to rock out!

Join our Team!

GRCVI is currently accepting nominations to the Board of Directors. As part of the Board, you will be an integral part of bringing camp together and working with a fabulous group of volunteers.

We will also be accepting applications to shadow the President and Vice President positions. For these roles, we are looking for volunteers with previous Girls Rock Camp experience who can make a two year time commitment (working alongside the current Board for this season, in preparation for leading next year). This is a great way to see GRCVI behind the scenes and contribute your organizational talents.

For detailed job descriptions for the Board of Directors please visit our website here: Join our Board of Directors. To apply, submit your nomination with a resume and tell us why you would like to be on the Board. If you’re nominating someone else, please inform them before submitting their name and we will reach out to them.

The election will take place during the AGM on Wednesday, March 21st at 6:30pm at City Studio Victoria, 742 Johnson St. This is the Annual General Meeting so quorum is needed, please RSVP and submit any nominations by Friday March 16th via email at hello@grcvi.ca.

You can also volunteer year-round as a Committee member to help with programming, social media and marketing. Committee positions may be held by one or more volunteers, so please let us know if you’re interested or would like to volunteer with a friend. To view a detailed description of the Committee roles please visit our website here: Volunteer Committees.

For Board and Committee roles, eligible applicants should be 19 years of age or older, not be in conflict of interest with the Board of Directors, not currently in bankruptcy or convicted of fraud, have a clean Criminal Records check and be a member in good standing (membership fees paid in full). For all positions, past experience with a Girls Rock Camp is preferred.

We hope you will consider being a part of the team that works year round to make camp happen.

Looking forward to seeing you at the AGM! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at hello@grcvi.ca.
