Call for Member Resolutions

In accordance with The Credit Unions and Caisses Populaires Act and Assiniboine Credit Union By-laws, members have the right to submit resolutions for consideration by the membership. Resolutions are part of the rules that guide and govern ACU and reflect the valuable input of the membership. A resolution permits the matter to be considered and voted upon by the members.

A resolution can be on any matter that a member submits for discussion. Under The Credit Unions and Caisses Populaires Act, the Board of ACU may refuse to allow a resolution to be included in the election package under certain circumstances. In such a case, ACU will notify the member within 10 days of receiving the resolution that it has been refused, and will include the reasons for the refusal.

ACU will provide notice to the membership of resolutions that have been submitted through the election packages delivered to members in January 2020. If the member submitting the resolution requests it, ACU will also include a statement by the member of not more than 200 words in support of the resolution, with the name and address of the proposing member. Assiniboine Credit Union’s Board may also provide a statement of its position for or against the resolution.

Deadline for Submission of a Resolution

To be considered for inclusion on the ballot in the election package, resolutions must be submitted in writing no later than 3pm on Monday, November 4, 2019 to:

The Chair of the Board of Directors
Assiniboine Credit Union
c/o 6th floor, 200 Main Street, Box 2, Station Main
Winnipeg, MB R3C 2G1

For further information or to speak with a member of the Nominating Committee, please call Jocelyn Peifer Ross at 204.258.3424.

Voting on a Resolution

In 2020, a properly submitted resolution will be voted on by mail ballot before the Annual Meeting.

Resolutions that are not part of the election package (and therefore, members have not received notice) will be ruled out of order if raised at the Annual Meeting. However, a member may propose from the floor at the Annual Meeting that “The Board of Directors consider …” a certain course of action and ask that the Board of Directors report back at the next Annual Meeting. A formal vote on any such proposal, however, will not be permitted.
