Grounded in the church - our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is an opportunity for us to be Accountable, Transparent and Responsive to you.
"Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing" 1 Thessalonians 5:11
The ministry of MCC Ontario would not be possible without you, our constituents, who are committed to sharing God’s love and compassion for all, in the name of Christ. We want you to know how deeply we appreciate your support, and how you are impacting so many lives in Ontario and around the world.
The September 23 Annual General Meeting (AGM) is our opportunity to share MCCO’s financial outcomes and a snapshot of our strategic plan progress. We are intentionally choosing to keep this meeting more compact and encourage you to join us in person for a light supper leading into a time of sharing and attending to the annual business requirements for our organization. The AGM will also be available to view online, but voting privileges do not extend to delegates viewing online.
Then on November 16, we encourage you to join us at our primary educational and informational event for the year, the MCC Ontario Peace Conference. Here you will have opportunity to hear stories and learn more about the impact your support of MCC’s work in relief, development and peace work around the world. This day-long event will provide inspiration and information through general sessions, seminars and conversation with hundreds of like-minded messengers of peace.
Please join us on September 23 in the Hospitality Room on the second floor at 50 Kent Avenue, Kitchener. A light supper buffet will be available beginning at 6 pm and the business meeting will begin around 6:20 pm.
Register online or call 519-745-8458.
Who is a delegate?
Each congregation is asked to appoint delegates to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in order to vote and report back to their congregation. Congregations may appoint two delegates for each 200 members or portion of 200 members. In addition, the MCCO Congregational Representative is automatically a voting delegate, as are MCCO Board members.
0-200 members = 2 delegates + one MCCO Congregational Representative
200-400 members = 4 delegates + one MCCO Congregational Representative
400-600 = 6 delegates + one MCCO Congregational Representative and so on...
Churches are also welcome to send as many interested people as they would like to attend, but voting privileges are only available as noted above. We encourage a young adult delegate to be included from your congregation.

Please note, voting privileges do not extend to delegates viewing online.
