Every January, SVCC holds an Annual General Meeting of members to report on the club’s accomplishments and member activities from the past year, and to elect members to the Board of Directors and vote on other club items.

SVCC President, Jeremy Malerich, will present the President’s report which summarizes the state of the club, our accomplishments from the past year and plans for the future. The Elections Committee will also be announcing the election results.


Immediately after the conclusion of the Business Agenda, we’ll open up discussion to all members to ask any and all questions with regards to future club operations.


RSVP is requested for the AGM. Letting us know whether and how you plan to attend will help ensure smooth execution of planned business and social activities.


Annual Board of Directors Election

Every year at the AGM, open seats on the Board of Directors are filled. This year we will be filling one full (3-year) term Board seat, as David Steele’s initial term comes to an end. The candidate who wins the election will assume this seat and will serve from 2022 until 2025.

Additionally, with the planned resignation of Lauren Rich, the current Board intends to appoint the runner-up of the election to serve the remaining year of Lauren’s term. The candidate who is appointed to this position will serve from 2022 to 2023.


Anyone planning to vote in the election must be a registered Member (Regular Member or Junior Member age 18+ years old as of Jan. 17, 2022) by December 31, 2021 11:59 PM PST . You can check your membership status by logging in to the Member Warmroom. If you have questions, please contact our Membership Coordiator (Jennifer) or the Elections Committee.
