OFFICERS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Officers of the executive committee are elected by members of the association at the AGM.
Every member must be elected by a simple majority using a secret ballot. In the event that a
position remains vacant after the AGM, or becomes vacant in between AGMs, the executive
committee can choose someone to fill the vacant position until the next AGM.

(a) President: Chairs the meeting of the Executive Committee and communicates with the Party and
Section Québec.

(b) Secretary: Issues notices of meetings, draws up agendas, keeps minutes and records of resolutions.

(c) Treasurer: Maintains financial records, collects incoming funds and controls disbursement. The
treasurer also has some responsibility for organizing fundraising, though this should be shared generally
among the executive.

(d) VP Communications: Responsible for sending out annoucements to members, maintaining social
media accounts, and contacting the local press. Also responsible for our social media database (i.e.,
Nationbuilder).

(e) VP Events: Handles the logistical organization of meetings, policy discussions and social events.

(f) VP Outreach: Responsible for developing and maintaining links with other NDP organizations (campus
clubs, neighbouring Riding Associations). The Outreach officer will also develop links with community
and labour groups.
