OBC Constitution Review

At the 2010 AGM, the Board presented proposed amendments to the OBC Constitution, based on work done over the previous year by a special committee made up from OBC membership at large. These amendments were endorsed by the Board. Although input from members was represented in these amendments, members present at the meeting felt that additional time should be permitted above and beyond the 30 days notice already given to comment on the proposed changes before voting.

In response to this concern, the Board will hold an open consultative meeting on Sunday January 16, 2011 from 12:30 to 4:00 pm, at the Ottawa City Hall  (Colonel By Room) to receive further input from the membership on the amendments.

All members are welcome to attend the session on January 16th and to provide input. Once the Board has considered and re-endorsed the amendment package, a vote by the membership to ratify the Board's recommended constitutional amendments will be scheduled.
