RE: PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY POSTPONED (NEW DATE TBA)
Dear Squamish Nation Members,
This notice is to inform members that the next People’s Assembly (formerly called “General Meeting”)—originally scheduled for January 26, 2020—has been postponed until further notice.
People’s Assemblies are a governance function of the Squamish Nation under the Election and Referendum Law approved by Membership. People’s Assemblies are scheduled quarterly as an opportunity for Membership to consider resolutions brought forward by Members to give direction on the future of the Squamish Nation. You can read more about People’s Assemblies in the Election and Referendum Law, which is available online at www.squamish.net/governance-documents.
The postponement is due to the fact that no Member resolutions were submitted, and that no Members indicated (to any Councillor or Council support staff) an intention to submit a resolution. Given that there are no agenda items for the People’s Assembly, we made the decision to postpone out of consideration for everyone’s time.
If you would like to bring a resolution to Membership at a future People’s Assembly, please complete a Resolution Drafting Template (download here) and email it to Eva_Johnston@squamish.net or drop it off at the main office. Resolutions will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
If you require assistance with preparing a resolution or have questions about how the process works, please do not hesitate to contact any member of Council or the Council Co-Chairs.
