2023 AGM & Nominations Committee
2023 Nominations Committee & AGM
The Annual General Meeting of BDMHA is currently set for Saturday June 10th, 2023 @ 2PM – HRM 4 Pad
As part of each BDMHA AGM, a slate of executives for the 2023/2024 season is gathered by a nomination committee. Article IX of our current constitution states the following with respect to the nomination committee
There shall be a nominating committee consisting of four (4) members, including the Past President as chairperson, to be appointed by the Executive Officers at least two (2) months in advance of the Annual General meeting, tasked with the responsibility of developing a slate of Executive Officers to be presented at the Annual General Meeting;
Our current past president Jason Hale cannot hold the chairperson position of the nomination committee due to a conflict of interest with his role at HNS; Thus the Executive Officers met and agreed a former member of the executive not currently holding a position on the board should chair this committee.
With that decision On Thursday April 6th, 2023 the Executive Officers unanimously appointed the following people to be the 4 members of the Nomination committee:
- Jeff Christian (Former VP Finance BDMHA) – Chair
- Matt Oxford (Current BDMHA Administrator)
- Adam Perritt (Member at Large)
- Richard Taylor (Member at Large).
The Nominating Committee will recruit for and accept applications for Executive Officer positions up to midnight of May 19th, 2023. For a list of Executive positions and the qualifications required to hold these positions please see Article VI of the BDMHA Constitution located HERE
Nominees for Executive Officer positions will be posted on the Association website on or before midnight May 23rd, 2023.

- the name of the individual being nominated;
- the position for which they are nominated;
