Notice of Motion and Reminder of GWI vote deadline at AGM on May 17

1. Notice of Motion

Background: On May 5 President Debbie Welland received a request for financial assistance from the History Department at Westmount Secondary School. Natalie Lopez ,a student at Westmount, has qualified for the International History Olympiad by successfully competing at the Regional and National Levels. The competition is in Hawaii from July 17 to 24 and will cost approximately $3,000.00 to attend, The airfare is approximately $800.00. Without assistance Natalie will be unable to attend. After conferring with the Executive, we believe this request meets our criteria on a one-time basis.

At the AGM on Tuesday, May17 I will make the following motion:

Moved that CFUW-Hamilton donate $800.00 to Westmount Secondary School to assist Natalie Lopez in attending the International History Olympiad in Honolulu , Hawaii from July 17 to 24 2016.

2. May 17 is the deadline for submitting your votes on the issue of Canada leaving or remaining as a member of GWI. If you are coming to the AGM please bring your ballots. If not, please call or email Debbie to give her your response.

Thank you.
