Proxy voting

Members are allowed to nominate a proxy to vote in their stead. The person holding the proxy must attend the meeting in person, and may hold no more than 5 proxied votes. Members under 16 years of age may not hold proxies; however they can collect and transfer proxies to their parent or guardian.

Members wishing to proxy their vote are required to adhere to this process:

(1) Contact the person you wish to proxy your vote to, in order to ensure that they will be at the meeting so that they may vote in your place.

(2) After confirming that your proxies will be present and are willing to act on your behalf, complete the proxy form. Present the form to your proxy so that she or he may present it at the Annual General Meeting.
