Dear WESE Members,

The Waldorf Education Society of Edmonton (WESE) is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) online, beginning promptly at 7 pm on Wednesday, November 17th, 2021.   It will be held online, and WESE members can register beforehand here.  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 boarddevelopment@wese.ca.  The nomination process closes on October 18, 2021.  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.  If you have any questions about the nominating and voting process, we would be happy to answer them.  Questions can also be sent to boarddevelopment@wese.ca.

WESE Board members meet every 3rd Thursday of each month from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  There are also three mandatory meetings per year with the Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton (WISE) faculty and administration.  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, fundraising, social justice, and communications.  Committees serve an essential role in the operations and leadership of our accessible school and other programs.

The positions up for election this year are:

  • Vice-President (2 year Term)

  • Treasurer (2 year Term)

  • Executive Director (2 year Term)

  • Director(s) (2 year Term)

  • Member(s)-at-Large (1 year Term)
