Any member of the public may ask to make a deputation at a Board meeting.
A deputation is the way people can tell the Board what they think about a report that is being discussed at a Board meeting.
Deputations can be spoken or in writing. Deputations need to be about items that are on meeting agenda. A person who gives a deputation is referred to as a deputant.
The deadline to register to speak at a meeting or to submit a written deputation is 12 p.m. on the day prior to the Board of Directors meeting.
The TSHC Board of Directors approved the TSHC Board’s Interim Deputation Policy on August 11, 2021.
A typical deputation follows this format:
- Thank the Chair and the Board
- Introduce yourself and why you are speaking.
- Explain your concerns and how they affect you and your community.
- Thank the Chair and the Board and remind them that you will be paying attention to how they vote on this item.
