Annual General Meeting, Wine & Cheese Social and Open Rehearsal
Tuesday April 25 during rehearsal, King's Christian Collegiate Library
This year, we've decided to combine our AGM with the ever popular Wine & Cheese evening and Open Rehearsal.
AGM will begin promptly at 7pm, followed by Wine & Cheese. Both our Philharmonia and Symphony rehearsals will be open to parents, grandparents and anyone interested in seeing the inner workings of the HMYO. It's a great opportunity to invite friends who might have an interest in joining the HMYO (Auditions begin in June)
Once again, we are excited to partner with Fielding Estates Winery. Fielding is an award winning winery from the Beamsville Bench (www.fieldingwines.com/). A number of wines will be available for tasting, as well as to order. Orders submitted that night will be available for pickup at the rehearsal on May 2.
New this year, we're welcoming Denninger's (www.denningers.com) as a sponsor of this event. Denninger's will be providing a great selection of cheeses to compliment the wines being served. Their fromagers will be recommending pairings to the specific wines.
At the AGM, our membership will vote on the budget, as well as nominate and approve additions and changes to our Board of Directors, and a minor change to our bylaws. We will also discuss some plans in the works for the upcoming season.
Please note that the HMYO is looking for additional members for our Board of Directors. In particular, we are looking for parents with experience in one or more of the following areas:
- Accounting (ideally CA or CPA)
- Legal / Charity
- Grant application
- Public Relations
- Social Media
The Board typically meets once per month on a Tuesday during rehearsal.
If you have experience in these or other areas, and are interested in joining our Board of Directors, please contact our Executive Director, Alan Montgomery. We'll be happy to answer any questions.
