Delegates met in-person on the evening of March 29 and morning of March 30 to network, review the investment and operational performance of CSS and the CSS Pension Plan, and visualize the future of CSS.
As in past years where the delegates met in-person, an information session was held the evening prior to the CSS Annual Meeting. Martin McInnis, Executive Director, discussed the delegate distribution resolution and the director election process. Brent Godson, Director, Investments and Financial Management, delivered an education session on "How We Monitor Investment Management Performance."
Jason Sentes, President of the CSS Board of Directors called the meeting to order. Several reports were provided during the meeting.
The delegates approved a bylaw amendment to the delegate distribution. The transition will take several years to occur. The new distribution will be as follows:
AB/BC/North will have four delegates
SK will have six delegates
MB/East will have three delegates
Retirees will have four delegates
Three director elections were held at the Annual Meeting: Two employee director elections and one employer director election.
