GREEN PARTY OF NEW BRUNSWICK 2020 ONLINE AGM

The Provincial Council invites you to join your fellow members at our 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday June 7, 2020, from 1pm to 3:30pm.  

There is no fee to attend our Online AGM. 
Deadline for registration is June 4th at 5pm.

This year the AGM will be organized in a special way to adhere to our by-laws and the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The meeting will be held online (with a phone in option) to avoid risks of infection.  As this is our first attempt at holding an AGM online we also plan to reduce the agenda to a minimum. That means we will be limited to reports from party officers and the running of Provincial Council elections.  Member motions and policy amendments will be deferred to a later date.

To hold the AGM prior to the summer we are also calling a Special Meeting of Members to ask members to waive the 90 days’ notice requirement for an AGM (By-law 4.1.3).

Here is the proposed schedule for Sunday June 7:

1pm:   

- Call to order Special Meeting of Members (online)
- Ask members to approve the motion that: "By-law 4.1.3 be set aside for the year 2020".
- Ask members to call for the 2020 AGM to start immediately following the meeting.
- Adjourn
- Call to order AGM (online)    
- Agenda will be sent upon your registration

Simultaneous French/English translation will be provided for the AGM and the SMM. Provincial Council elections will also take place online as part of our AGM using an online voting software. 


*To be able to participate, you must have been a member for at least 14 days, i.e. since Sunday May 24th; and you must have registered for the AGM and SMM before June 4th at 5pm to allow us time to verify membership status. You can sign up to be a member by following this link Become a member.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Local Self-Reliance

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Active Citizenship

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
