Event Type

We will be returning with a digital AGM for 2022.  We  feel this allows for those dojos who are further outside the city to participate as the travel time will be just minutes 🙂

  • Who: Open to all KNS members, you are encouraged to attend; you do not have to be an instructor/coach. However, each dojo is only permitted 2 voting members as designated by Head Instructor, the rest would be non-voting members.
  • What: AGM! AGENDA | This is a great opportunity to express your view on the past and current business of the KNS.  All the documents for the AGM will be made available prior to Sunday meeting.  They are being added as they become available They can be found here, please review in advance.
  • When: SUNDAY, May 15th, 6:40 pm – 9:00 pm  (6:30 pm connect)

Board/Executive Positions – Here is a list of all the positions that are becoming available and are open to nominations, in brackets you will see the term duration::

  • Director at Large (mandate will be until 2023 AGM),
  • Director at Large (mandate will be until 2024 AGM),
  • Director at Large (mandate will be until 2024 AGM),
  • Secretary (mandate will be until 2024 AGM),
  • Athlete Director (nominated by High Performance Committee, ratified at AGM, mandate will be until 2024 AGM),

Due to the AGM being digital we will not be taking any “in session” nominations. This is necessary in order for us to prepare for online voting to make the process as smooth as possible.  Any unfilled positions at completion of AGM will be chosen by members of the board/executive as per bylaws.

Nomination Process: Should you be interested in any of the positions, here is the nomination process:

  • Nominations will not be accepted from the floor.
  • Any Voting Member of KNS may nominate another member to be one of the
    members of the Board/Executive.  (Each dojo has 2 voting members, please check with your dojo),
  • There is no limit on how many nominations a voting member puts forward.
  • Members could be nominated for more than one position.
  • Nomination must be submitted to the KNS Technical Director ([email protected]) by May 7th, 2022  Extended to May 13th
  • Submission must include details that note the individual doing the nominating, the nominee, the position being nominated for, and an overview of interest, experience, skills that the nominee will bring to the board/executive.  These details will be provided to the voting members at the AGM so that they can make a better informed decision.
  • You do not have to be a head instructor or senior member of a dojo to have your name put forward for any of the vacancies, you just need to be willing to volunteer time and energy and work with team to make a difference!

Get involved, collaborate and spread the love of the art and sport! Many hands make light work!
