What to Expect if You’re Elected

Folk Music Ontario (FMO) is now seeking individuals to stand as candidates in the 2022 election of its Board of Directors. Directors will be elected by electronic ballot (or acclaimed) ahead of this year’s Annual General Meeting (September 27, 2022) with terms concluding with the 2025 AGM. For 2022, FMO is looking to fill three board positions through this process.

This year we will be welcoming our community to our 35th annual conference in-person, in London, Ontario, October 13-16th, 2022. We hope that nominees will plan to attend the conference, regardless of their nomination status, and if elected, will attend their first board meeting at the event.

Nominees are required to read our What to Expect If You’re Elected document to better understand the responsibilities of board members.
