The Waldorf Education Society of Edmonton (WESE) is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the WISE gymnasium, beginning promptly at 7 pm on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022. The AGM includes presentation of the society’s financial reports, committee reports, election of new board members and amendments to the bylaws. We invite all of our members to join us for this important event.
In preparation for the AGM, we are currently recruiting nominations for new board members. If you wish to join the board or nominate someone as a board member, please submit nominations, or your application form, to firstname.lastname@example.org. The nomination process is open, and closes on October 14th, 2022. Nominees will be required to complete an application that will be reviewed by the nominations committee. The new board members will be officially voted in during the AGM. Questions about the nominating and voting process can be sent to email@example.com.
WESE Board members meet every 3rd Thursday of each month from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Each Board member generally participates and/or chairs a WESE or WISE committee. Committees include areas such as finance, site development, parent partnership, growth & development, fairs, fundraising, community garden, social justice, and communications.
