Election Notice and Call for Nominations

At this time, there are 10 members of Astrology Toronto Inc.  willing to serve on the Board of Directors.

The Astrology Toronto Bylaws specify in article 10 that:

“Elections for vacant positions on the executive committee of Astrology Toronto Inc. shall be held annually, typically at the AGM, as required.”

However at this time there are no vacancies.  The following are directors of the Board and their titles and a new candidate:

Joan Bennell Co-President, Vice-President

Julie Simmons Co-President, Vice-President

Jennifer Samuels Secretary*

Anne-Marie MacDonell  Treasurer

Elena Picceli Member-at-Large

Melina Crane Member-at-Large

Marilyn Mazzotta Member-at-Large

Christine McDonald Member-at-large

Jane Sloan Member-at-Large

Charm Torres (new)



While our Constitution and the requirements of Government Services Ontario require that we have a President and Vice-President, at the last Election we opted for non-hierarchical form of governance hoping to move towards a more collaborative way of working.  This has worked well and we hope to continue in that vein.

If Nominating by Email

Nominations must be seconded to be valid, and the person nominated must validate that in fact, they want to run for the position.

Thus for an email nomination to be valid, there are three emails required:

  • One from the person making the nomination
  • One from the person seconding the nomination
  • One from the person being nominated

Of course, all the persons involved in a nomination must be paid-up members.

At this point there are no vacancies on the Board, but some may appear by July 14th

The Executive will be elected at the Annual General Meeting.

Nominations will also be accepted from the floor of the meeting.

*Note: The position if Secretary has lately become available

If you are interested in serving on the Board or Executive, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at
