The next People’s Assembly is the third assembly of the year, and will be held on November 26, 2022 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Yes. The third People’s Assembly of the year is also considered the annual general meeting. At the November 26 People’s Assembly, the Nation’s audited financial statements for the previous fiscal year are presented for review and comment. Another key difference is that the annual general meeting of the People’s Assembly has a higher quorum requirement than the other assemblies: 12 percent of eligible voters.
Quorum is the minimum number of eligible voting Members that must be in attendance for voting to occur. The numbers required for quorum are established in the Election and Referendum Law: the first two assemblies of the year require 5 percent of eligible voters to achieve quorum, and the third assembly of the year requires 12 percent of eligible voters to achieve quorum. As of right now, there are 3,157 Squamish Nation Members of eligible voting age, so the November 26 People’s Assembly will require 379 Members to attend to reach quorum.
Show up early! The meeting starts exactly at 10:00 am and quorum must be established within 45 minutes. If quorum is not reached by 10:45 am on November 26, the meeting will adjourn and no voting will occur. It is important to arrive early to sign in and receive voting instructions.
Yes! The November 26 People’s Assembly will be held in person at Totem Hall and Chief Joe Mathias Centre, and online via Zoom. Online attendees must register in advance to receive the meeting link. All eligible Members attending online will be able to vote.
A resolution is a formal decision of the Membership, voted on by a quorum of Members at an assembly. A resolution can bring an idea forward, call for a change in process, or request work to be done on a certain item. Resolutions are typically focused on one specific topic.
