Voting & membership

Current members who have been active since at least September 20, 2022 are eligible to vote at this meeting. Not sure if you’re a member? Email Sharon Xia, Manager of Donor Support, to confirm.

While only current West Coast LEAF members are eligible to vote at the AGM, attending is a great opportunity to learn more about our work to advance gender equality in BC. We welcome and encourage non-members to attend.

If you’re not yet a member, we invite you to consider becoming one. It won’t qualify you for voting privileges this year but by becoming a member you join a community fighting for gender justice and equality. A donation of any amount qualifies you to opt in to membership.
