The Centre’s annual general meeting (AGM) is scheduled for Jun 18 at St Paul’s Anglican Church on Jervis St.
The agenda includes the election of a new board of directors.
Asked how many seats have to be filled, executive director Jennifer Breakspear says she doesn’t know “off the top of my head” and referred Xtra West to the board itself.
Xtra West’s calls to board co-chair Craig Maynard were not returned by press time.
According to a May 29 notice to members, a person must have been a member of the Pacific Foundation for the Advancement of Minority Equality (PFAME), which runs The Centre, for a minimum of 30 days prior to the upcoming AGM to run for election. The release also states that if a person’s membership has lapsed in the 12 months before the AGM, membership can be renewed at the meeting.
Asked to elaborate about the other items on the AGM agenda, Breakspear says she hasn’t seen a copy of the agenda but notes that it usually includes a board of directors’ report, the executive director’s report and financial statements.
Asked if there’s going to be an update on The Centre’s possible relocation, she says the organization is exploring all options. “I suspect it will be addressed in board reports [and] my own report,” she adds.
As for The Centre’s anticipated rebranding initiative, Breakspear reiterates that she has not seen the agenda. “I suspect that you’re going to hear about rebranding, yes.”
Asked if Q Unity is the new name selected for The Centre, she says she’s “not responding to that at this time.”
