This regular meetup is our fourth quarter general meeting. The primary purpose of this meeting is to further discuss and vote on the following motion:

“That the Saskatoon Freethinkers become a Centre for Inquiry Canada branch per their usual process”. 

On Nov 7, we had the opportunity to find out what is involved in becoming a CFI Branch and to speak with Justin Trottier, National Executive Director, CFI Canada about this. Please see the related discussion and ask any questions and make arguments for or against the motion before the in-person meeting.

To vote on this motion, we are using the poll function on Meetup – respond to the poll here. This is the best way to ensure that all regular members (defined in our Bylawsas members who have joined the group on Meetup) can anonymously vote only one time and are not required to attend a meeting in person. We will keep the poll open for approximately one week as a virtual general meeting motion, which will extend past the in-person part of the general meeting by at least 24 hours in order to allow voting/changing votes after discussion at the meeting. Motions require a two-thirds majority vote (of those voting) to pass. Members will be informed of the decision via email when the poll closes.

At this meeting, we will also explain the plan for council elections, which will take place before our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in January. If you would like to propose a motion, please send that to the Chair in advance of the meeting if possible.
