On October 16, 2014 about 30 parents met in the Lord Byng library. The group consisted of some of the Executive Council nominees and other concerned parents. They discussed the May and June PAC elections and whether the 64 parents who placed their names on a list of EC nominees were properly elected. It was agreed that because there was no vote taken by parents, the nominees were not formally elected. As a result they did not have authority to act. Nor did they have the authority to elect the Table Officers on June 17, 2014. Because the elections were null and void, the group agreed to hold new elections on October 28, 2014.
Date: Tuesday, October 28, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm
Where: Lord Byng Library
Cheryl Chang, who was PAC Chair from 2012-2014 (re-elected by the PAC Executive Council in June for the 2014/15 year), has resigned from the Lord Byng PAC. John Puddifoot, one of the 2 Vice Chairs elected in June, will be the acting Chair until the Executive Council elects a new Chair at their next meeting. As the other Vice Chair has also resigned, a second Vice Chair will also need to be elected.
More parents are welcome to join the PAC Executive Council at the first PAC General meeting of the 2014/15 school year on October 28, 2014.
