Special Bylaws Meeting - Wednesday, March 29th

On November 28, 2016 the new Societies Act came into effect and we, along with all other BC Societies are now governed by it. Since there have been some significant changes in the new Act, a decision was made last year to update our own Bylaws.

The first Bylaw committee was formed by members of last year's Board and that committee was discharged when they completed their revision.This occurred in the late fall.
After the new Board was elected in December another committee was formed and they continued to fine tune the revised Bylaws.
For your consideration and review, there are two documents:
1. Current Constitution and Bylaws of Senior Citizens Association of BC Branch #49 (2015). Available here.
2. Proposed new Bylaws for Branch #49. Available here.

Please review and any concerns should be brought to the Board at 1:00 p.m this Wednesday, March 29, in the small hall, where a question and answer period will take place.
These documents will also be in hard copy format available at the centre for those without access to a printer and a copy will be pinned to the bulletin board in the main hall.
