2014 Toronto Humane Society AGM Results

June 13, 2014

The Toronto Humane Society’s AGM was held on June 10 and seven people were elected to serve on the Board of Directors.

Elected to serve for three years:

  • David Bronskill
  • Lisa Gibbens
  • Cathy Kinloch
  • Bronwen Morgan
  • Diana Pizzola

Elected to serve for two years:

  • James LaPlante

Elected to serve for one year:

  • Carol Hroncek

Although the original AGM materials indicated that six Directors would be elected, shortly after the package was mailed, another vacancy was created by a Board resignation. The Board decided to fill all seven seats at the 2014 AGM.

    To be fair, all members (both those who voted by proxy and those who voted in person) were allowed to vote for up to six candidates. Then, when the scrutineers tabulated the results, the top seven candidates were selected.

    The five candidates who received the highest number of votes were elected for three years; the candidate with the sixth highest number of votes was elected for two years; and the candidate with the seventh highest number of votes was elected for one year.

    The leadership page will be updated with the 2014-15 officers (the Chair, President, Vice President, Secretary & Treasurer) next week.

    Thank you to all our members for your ongoing support of the Toronto Humane Society. We are always happy to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us at 416-392-2273 or drop by the shelter for a visit.


    Marcie Laking, President
