At the meeting, Chris Rutkowski [BSc/83, MEd/92], Canada’s “UFO Guy,” will give a special presentation. Rutkowski is a science writer with nine published books on “things that go bump in the night,” his views on things “out of this world” have landed him on popular TV shows such as the History Channel’s Close Encounters and Indians and Aliens on APTN. He’ll tell us about recent reports of strange things in Manitoba, and explain why science should take more interest in the subject.
Also at this meeting, a change in the by-laws will also be presented. The change is highlighted below – to view the full draft document, click here.
- Attendance at Board and committee meetings by Board Members is integral to the effective functioning of the Alumni Association. Therefore, if any elected Board Member misses two (2) consecutive regular Board meetings without reasonable cause, or who misses more than 50% of board and committee meetings in a calendar year, the Member will be contacted by the Chair of the board to discuss their attendance and the advisability of continued membership on the board. Based on the discussion, the Board Chair will determine whether or not to recommend to the board that the board member be removed from the Board.
