PAC ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND ELECTION

TUESDAY, MAY 8 7:00-9:00PM

 

At the AGM we will be electing our 2018-2019 Cameron Parent Advisory Council executive.

Without more executive members we will not be able to continue to provide events like the Multicultural Dinner and Pancake Breakfast, or raise funds for library books, sports equipment, and technology.

There are a wide variety of positions available and no experience is necessary. Many positions can be shared by two people, and our executive works very collaboratively so there is always support available. See position descriptions below, and contact chair@cameronpac.ca for more information or to let us know you’d like to be involved.

The AGM will also include a presentation by SafeOnline about Parenting in a Digital Age–this will provide parents with information in connection with SafeOnline assemblies being held for intermediate students earlier in the day.

Doors will open at 6:45. Light refreshments will be served.

PAC EXECUTIVE POSITIONS FOR 2018-2019

 

The Chairperson presides at all meetings, prepares and distributes the agenda, and is the official spokesperson for the PAC.

The Vice-Chairperson assists the Chairperson and will assume their responsibilities in case of absence, presides over the Annual General Meeting, and accepts other duties as required.

The Secretary records minutes of all meetings, handles correspondence, and keeps all PAC records.

The Treasurer ensures PAC funds are properly accounted for, maintains financial records and books of account, reports on funds received and spent at each meeting, and drafts the annual budget.

The District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) Representative attends all Burnaby DPAC meetings to represent and vote on behalf of the PAC, reports to the executive and membership about DPAC matters, and liaises with other parents and DPAC representatives.

The Fundraising Coordinator develops a fundraising plan for the year, organizes fundraising events and campaigns, works with the treasurer to ensure incoming funds are handled appropriately, and reports on fundraising plans and amounts raised at each meeting.

The Social Coordinator organizes social (non-fundraising) events for the school community, reports on event planning at each meeting, and recruits and communicates with parent volunteers.

Members-at-Large serve in a capacity determined by the PAC as needed. We are hoping to have three Member-at-Large positions:

The Special Projects Coordinator develops and coordinates projects like the recent Greening Project and applies for funding grants as needed.

The Emergency Preparedness Coordinator ensures that emergency supplies are stocked and communicates with school staff about these resources.

The Communications Coordinator manages the website www.cameronpac.ca and creates monthly newsletters for parents.

Many of these positions can be shared by two people. All parents/guardians of Cameron students are members of the Parent Advisory Council, and are eligible to serve on the executive, except employees or elected officials of School District 41 or the BC Ministry of Education. Executives are expected to attend our monthly meetings.
