Bruce Grey Owen Sound Greens – Green Party of Ontario and Green Party of Canada
Minutes – February 22, 2015
Meeting opened at 1:15 p.m.
1. Presentation by David McLaren, Federal Candidate for the NDP
a. Presented the policy positions of the NDP to the BGOS Greens, asking for the environmental policies that we considered most important in the region, and highlighting commonalities between the two parties.
b. We can contact him at

2. Presentation of GPO “Summary of Income and Expenses”
a. Don is hoping to have a GPO only meeting when he returns, but for now Doug is going to provide a financial update regarding how the GPO is doing.
a.i. We had a very slow year for local contributions. There was a trip by Jenny to the Ottawa Convention which accounts for the “Travel and Hospitality” amount. The renting of the post office box and the Book Store in Williamsford for our meetings represents the “Other” expenses. Our current bank balance is positive.
a.ii. Doug moved acceptance of the Summary of Income and Expenses, and Scott seconded it. Unanimously agreed.

3. Future of GBOS Greens
a. We are currently looking for a new Green Party of Canada – President, CFO, and Communications Officer. We need to fill the President and CFO positions by May 31, 2015, otherwise the Grey Bruce chapter of the Green Party of Canada will be deregistered. We cannot look at running a candidate until we find a President and CFO.
b. Discussion ensued of how to encourage membership to step up. Possibilities included an advertising and email campaign, and forming a search committee.
c. Steve, Jerry and Betty-Lynn will form a search committee to find an executive.
d. Potential members who could step up as President and CFO were proposed and an AGM was planned for May 21, 2015 @ 7:00pm at the Williamsford Book Store to elect the Green Party of Canada executive for Grey Bruce.
e. It was suggested that the AGM could also be a nomination meeting for a potential federal candidate, but that this would have to be decided by April 21, 2015.
f. Don will post a description of the positions on the GBOS website and Adrianne will help to send them out to current and lapsed members.

4. Scott adjourned the meeting at 2:30p.m.
