Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the most important and most powerful body of our organization. The AGM is the ultimate decision maker. The AGM gives the organization direction in policy when dealing with the government. Over the past few years the direction has been the Re-Affirmation of our Aboriginal Title and Land Claims, also our inherent right to Self-Government.
The AGM can support or reverse any decision made by our Board of Directors or the Council’s Executive during the year. The Assembly is the only body which can make changes to the Constitution and By-Laws of our organization. The Constitution is the guiding principle of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council.
The AGM made up of representatives from each Chartered Local of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council. The Constitution and By-Laws allows for up to ten voting delegates per chartered local.
The main function of the AGM is to receive and to react to reports on activities of the Board of Directors, the Executive, the Auditor. This is where the democratic process of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples Council is really shown. The membership has the opportunity or elect who they want to represent them with Government.
