Constitutional Review

In 2009, a review of the Constitution was initiated. The proposed changes were presented at the 2010 AGM. The membership did not approve the changes and a consultation process with the Club membership was initiated online and in meeting format in January 2011. The Committee met again in May 2011 and made numerous changes to the proposed changes to the Constitution. The Board reviewed and accepted these changes in early June 2011.

In August 2011, the Board went one step further and engaged the services of law firm Borden, Ladner, Gervais to ensure that our amended constitution complied with all statutes and laws governing not-for-profit organizations in Ontario. Further changes were made based on the recommendations of the lawyer. These changes were more of an administrative nature and were accepted by the Board of Directors.

At the AGM 2011, there will be time alloted in the agenda for a motion to accept or not accept the proposed changes to the Constitution.
