The agenda consists of annual reports on our work from the President, Treasurer, Chief Animal Protection Officer, and others; the election of members to fill vacant at-large positions on the Board of Directors; recognition of our Animal Protection Officers; and discussion and action on any new business for which notice is given.

Call for Nominations for At-Large Board Positions

Under the Society’s by-laws, nominations to vacant at-large positions on the Board of Directors must be received two weeks prior to the AGM. Email any nomination to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday, April 18 (send it to the attention of the Secretary or the Nominating Committee), or send it by regular mail to NBSPCA, Box 1412, Station A, Fredericton NB, E3B 5E3, early enough for it to arrive by the 18th. Remember you must be a member yourself to nominate someone; you must send a short biographical sketch of the person nominated; and, of course, you should make sure that the person is willing to accept the nomination if elected.

There are five at-large positions on the Board, each carrying a two-year term. Three are up for election at this year’s AGM. The continuing at-large Board Members are Poul Jorgenson (Fredericton) and Vanessa Packman (Sussex). The three members whose terms are expiring this spring are Wayne Foley (Fredericton), Carole LeBlanc (Moncton), and Fran Menton (Saint John). Most of our Board is not elected at the AGM, since it consists of the presidents of the various branch societies, and the executive officers (President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer) are elected by the Board itself.

Call for New Business

Remember that under our by-laws, items of new business for discussion at the AGM, or formal motions, must be received by the Society at least seven days prior to the AGM. Please email any notices of motion or other business to This email address is being protected from spambots.
