Upcoming TFM Events
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
October 19 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Exciting News! This year’s annual meeting will feature a talk by Master Gardener Steve Nokes. Steve is well known in the Spokane area as a popular presenter on a wide variety of gardening topics. With over 30 years of experience as a Master Gardener, Steve will be sharing the latest discoveries from this planting season and offering tips on the best things you can do during the winter months to be ready for planting on Day 1 of Spring. We will also be celebrating another great year of supporting Manito Park.
This meeting will feature Door Prizes: 2 lucky winners will each receive $100 gift certificates to our 2020 Plant Sales.
This is a very important meeting for you, our members. At this meeting, you will add representatives to your Board of Trustees and elect Officers. This year your Board will be representing 3 motions to Amend TFM bylaws, each of which is critically important to the Board’s continuing effort in achieving good governance. These can only be realized, however, if you VOTE in support and as such, for the very first time, we are offering the opportunity to cast your vote by Proxy (assigning your right to vote to the Board) if you are unable to attend the meeting in person.
- The first Motion reduces the required number of attendees (a “Quorum”) to hold membership meetings.
- The second gives your Board of Trustees the authority to amend the Bylaws other than those which speak to TFM’s Mission, the Selection and Terms of your Board/Officers and the right of our Members to vote. These Bylaws remain the responsibility of you, the Member.
- The third adds the potential for future voting by electronic transmission (at first likely via email).
Simply put, YOUR voice counts and your Board needs your help in meeting its obligations. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
