Thank you to everyone who came out for our Annual General Meeting. This was our largest turnout ever. (People kept arriving after we started, too, so the minutes don’t actually reflect the final number.)
The revisions to the bylaws were passed as proposed. This will bring our bylaws better in line with how we have actually been operating for years.
Our new board was elected. John Tumbach, Albert La, James Cooper, and Scott Walde all stood for re-election. New this year, Andrew Wright was nominated. All five candidates were elected unanimously.
Since we failed to do anything special on the 6 year anniversary of our incorporation, (Some of our members had other plans that night — I don’t understand their priorities.) we decided to recognise it a month late. Cake was eaten.
You are cordially invited to our Annual General Meeting, to be held at Saskatoon TechWorks on March 17, 2015 at 7:00PM. The agenda for this meeting will include:
- A presentation of the Chairman’s Report from our President, Albert La
- A review of this past year’s financial statements from our Treasurer, Jeremy Rans
- Election of the board members for next year
Board nominations are now open and can be made on this forum post
. Nominations will close at the end of March 9, 2015.
This is also a time when we may make changes to the bylaws. If you would like to propose any changes to be vote on at the AGM, please email them to Saskatoon TechWorks
no later than March 9, 2015.
Voting is available to members only, but the public is welcome to attend.
I look forward to seeing you all there,
It’s the second Tuesday of the month and you know what that means: monthly meeting time!
We will be meeting at Techworks at 509A Gray Ave. at 7PM on June 10th. We request all members to please attend our monthly update and discussion. Visitors are also welcome to join us to learn more about the space and meet the other members.
See you there!
It’s that time of year again… join us at the space (509A Gray Ave) on March 11th at 7PM for our third AGM. We’ll take a quick look back at the past year, get an update on the organization’s financials, vote in the Board of Directors, and more.
7pm, 422 44th St E. Be there!
Our next regular meeting will be held on at 7pm on Tuesday April 9th in our space at 422 44th St E.
Just a quick overview of last night’s AGM…
Elected a new board, it consists of:
- James Cooper
- Rylan Grayston
- Albert La
- Jeremy Rans
- Ryan Silk
- Kurtis Wanner
Actual board member titles are TBD (these are decided amongst the board members) but should be announced shortly.
Another noteworthy tidbit is that a bylaw change was passed to lower the number of people required for quorum. This was previously “the lesser of 12 people or 50% membership” and is now “the lesser of 10 people or 50% membership.”
Finally, we discussed a variety of workshops that we’re going to be looking to hold in the near future. These include CAD/CAM (SolidWorks/Aspire), PCB manufacturing, casting & molding & arduino. Stay tuned for specific dates.
Just another reminder, this year’s AGM is at 7PM on Tuesday March 12th at 422 44th St E. All members are encouraged to attend and the public is welcome to attend as well. Hope to see everyone there!
We’ll be holding our regularly monthly meeting next Tuesday at 7pm in the usual spot, 422 44th St E. Please be in attendance as we will be holding a vote regarding a big upcoming purchase!

Hey everyone, sorry for the short notice here. Our meeting this month is going to be on its regular day (January 8th), just kind of snuck up on us so we forgot to announce it. Hope everyone can make it! We’ll be talking a lot about Spectrum which is happening January 17-20.
