Advanced Motion Submission

The AGM provides an opportunity for members to participate in self-regulation by bringing forward motions for the consideration of Council.

If you submit your motion at least 30 days in advance (by September 19), you’ll also benefit from it being published to members ahead of the meeting, in order to support informed debate on the issue you are raising.

To submit a motion for the AGM, you’ll need to provide the full text of your motion, along with some basic information about how it aligns with the association’s Strategic Plan and the motion’s importance. Advanced motions must be received no later than 5:00 PM on September 19, 2019.

For more information, refer to the submission guide.

Submission After September 19

If you’ve missed the September 19 deadline, you can still submit a motion from the floor at the AGM. All motions must be received prior to the deadline approved by the assembly (usually 10:00 AM on the day of the AGM).

To submit your motion at the AGM:

  • Complete the Motion Submission Form and bring a hard copy with you to the AGM.
  • Give your form to one of the Engineers and Geoscientists BC staff at the AGM registration desk before the deadline approved by the assembly. The deadline is approved as part of the Meeting Rules.

Presenting Your Motion on October 19

The mover and seconder must both be present at the AGM to introduce the motion. Member motions are presented in the order they are received. Each motion is displayed for the assembly, and the mover will be asked to speak to their motion (3 minutes maximum). Members in attendance may then discuss and debate the motion, and will vote by a show of hands.
