Resolutions at SaskFlax AGM

Any registered flax producer is eligible to bring forward a resolution at the Annual General Meeting of the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission. A registered producer is a producer who has sold flax and paid the flax levy in Saskatchewan within the past year and has not requested a rebate.

Resolutions must clearly note the person who is proposing them. A seconder will be called for at the meeting. Resolutions are generally structured by introducing each background point to the issue with the word “Whereas..”. The resolution itself is usually stated, “Be it resolved that...”

Resolutions received by the SaskFlax office more than two business days in advance of the start of the AGM require a simple majority (50 per cent) to pass; those introduced during the meeting require a two-thirds majority to pass.
