2022 Annual General Meeting of the Law Society of British Columbia

Wednesday, June 22, 2022

Call to order: 12:30 pm PDT

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Law Society will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

Virtual Meeting

Pursuant to Rule 1-9.1, the Executive Committee has directed that the 2022 AGM will be held as an entirely virtual meeting with no physical locations. Advance voting on the resolutions to be considered at the 2022 AGM will be available, so that members need not attend the 2022 AGM to have their vote counted.

Further instructions regarding participating in the virtual AGM, including instructions on how to vote in advance of the meeting and at the meeting, will be provided in the second meeting notice. 


The business of the AGM will include the following:

  • Election of Second Vice-President-elect for 2023;
  • Appointment of Law Society auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022; and
  • Consideration of any Bencher or member resolutions.

Member Resolutions

To be considered at the 2022 AGM, any member resolutions must be submitted electronically, signed by two members in good standing (“the movers”) and be received by the Executive Director via email to no later than 5:00 pm on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 (Rule 1-8(6)).

Member resolutions will be posted within the Law Society Member Portal as they are received and members will be notified. The movers of a resolution may provide one statement in support of the resolution, to be posted within the Member Portal.

All members will be able to comment within the Member Portal on any resolutions to be considered and voted on during the period of advance voting and at the meeting. The ability to comment on resolutions is intended to provide an opportunity for debate on any resolutions, and to assist the movers of a resolution in determining if they wish to withdraw or make changes to the resolution. Comments will not be anonymous, will be visible to all members within the Member Portal, and will be moderated by the Law Society to ensure compliance with the Member Portal’s terms of use.

The last day for the movers of a resolution to withdraw or make changes to a resolution will be Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Following receipt of any notice of withdrawal or change to a resolution, the resolution wording will be finalized and communicated to all members in the second meeting notice and members will have the opportunity to vote in advance on the resolutions prior to the June 22, 2022 AGM.

If you have any questions regarding the submission of resolutions, their consideration at the AGM, or the virtual meeting, contact Avalon Bourne, Manager, Governance & Board Relations, by telephone at 604.443.5706 (toll-free at 1.800.903.5300) or by email:
