Submitting Motions at the Annual General Meeting

Posted on September 4, 2019

Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is an opportunity for members to hear from Council and senior staff on the association’s strategic progress, key initiatives, and financial standing. It’s also an opportunity for members to participate in self-regulation by bringing forward motions for the consideration of Council. Motions may be proposed by professional members (P.Eng. or P.Geo.) or licensees (Eng.L. or Geo.L.).

To submit a motion for consideration at the AGM, members or licensees must complete the Proposed AGM Motion Form by 5:00 PM, September 19, 2019. The form should include the full text of the motion, an explanation of its importance, and how it aligns with the association’s Strategic Plan. The mover and seconder must both be present at the AGM to introduce the motion. 

Motions submitted in advance of the AGM are published ahead of the meeting, to support informed discussion about the issue raised. Advance submission also allows the association to address procedural issues with the proposed motions’ movers before the motions are presented at the AGM. 

Members and licensees may also submit motions 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. 

For more information about submitting advanced motions at the AGM, download the Advanced Motion Submission Guide.

The AGM will be held Saturday October 19, 2019, at 8:30 AM, at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort, in Kelowna, BC.  For more information, visit
