You are invited (and encouraged!) to participate in the District 11 provincial Green District Association's Annual General Meeting.
What is a District Association?
The District Association is the primary local organizing unit of the Green Party of Prince Edward Island. District Associations play a critical role in local grassroots activities, community engagement, fundraising, and selecting and supporting candidates in elections. A strong District Association is instrumental in laying the groundwork for the successful election (or re-election) of a Green MLA.
What happens at the Annual General Meeting, and how can I get involved?
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the most important annual occasion for Green Party members in a district to come together. It is when the District Association’s Coordinating Team reports on its activities over the past year, and seeks the input and engagement of members.
The most important order of business will be the election of the Coordinating Team (see below).
You must have a Green Party of PEI membership in good standing (or have become a member at least 30 days before the AGM), and be resident in District 11, to be eligible to vote at the AGM. However, members in good standing who live outside of the District may also put themselves forward for election to the Coordinating Team, and all members are welcome to attend the meeting.
Electing the Coordinating Team
The District Association’s Coordinating Team is the Association’s executive body, driving and guiding the Association’s activities.

Member-at-large (term is until the next AGM)
