The request should clearly indicate what is being sought from the Regional District (eg. funding, a letter of support, a change in bylaw or to provide information only). If seeking financial  assistance, please attach a budget for your project which shows expected sources of revenue. Delegations are not intended to be opportunities for debate, discussion, or questioning of the Board regarding its policies or decisions.

3. Confirmation of the presentation schedule will be provided when the meeting agenda has been published.

4. Handouts – should the delegation wish to have materials circulated to Board members, please ensure that they are provided to the Corporate Officer as soon as possible prior to the Board meeting so they can be circulated with the agenda. PowerPoint presentations should be emailed to Paper copies of presentations may be provided as backup in case of system failure.

5. Equipment – should the delegation require presentation equipment (eg. overhead projector, presentation projector or flipchart stand), please advise the Corporate Officer well in advance so that arrangements can be made and electronic equipment tested prior to the meeting.

6. Delegations are permitted a maximum of ten (10) minutes to make their presentation.

7. Delegations are generally heard at the beginning of the meeting (this may vary depending on the contents of the agenda for any given meeting).

8. Following the presentation delegations may be questioned by Board members. After all questioning is complete the delegation will be asked to be seated. Decisions on the subject matter of the presentation may or may not be made at the same meeting depending on a variety of factors including the need for additional evaluation. Members of the delegation are welcome to stay and listen to the remainder of the public meeting.

Thank you for taking time to prepare yourself and the Board Members for your presentation.
