Snacks & tokens will be available.
Meeting is open to volunteers, staff, board members, and service users.
At the AGM, we will:

If you are interested in joining the Maggie’s board, please attend the meeting with a statement ready. If you are unable to attend the meeting but would still like to run as a board member, please email your statement to Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be presented on your behalf.
Although lived experience as a sex worker is not a requirement of all board members, it is preferred and at least 4 of 7 members must have experiential knowledge in trading or selling sexual services. We also encourage board members who are living with HIV and/or Hep C, trans*, two spirit and genderqueer people, Black, Indigenous and racialized people, and people living with disabilities. Potential board members should have strong knowledge regarding issues impacting sex workers, and a good understanding of intersectional oppression and the ways in which sex work intersects with issues such as racism, transphobia, poverty, colonialism, disability, drug use, among others.
Board members are expected to attend one 3 hour meeting per month, and take on at least 10 hours of additional work on behalf of the organization. This work could be administrative, advocacy-based, program assistance, campaign drives, fundraising, communications, and other kinds of work in support of Maggie’s. Board members are forbidden from seeking financial compensation as a result of their work at Maggie’s.
