The QFHS members-only meeting and AGM is apparently having an election that is restricted to members-only-in-attendance. The rest of the membership does not get a ballot or a vote.

From the look of the QFHS website,(under new management) it indicates that the lecture as well is (members only). As far as I can recall these lectures have always been "Public Lectures." How does this attract genealogists to bring a guest.
Yes, an important AGM,! Keeping in mind the joy that genealosts experience, one should consider to have an open mind, listen.to the information and take pride in making an informed decision on matters at hand. After it's YOUR society.
