Two Special Resolutions Notice for the 2018 AGM
This notice contains wording of two Special Resolutions for your consideration at the AGM, and background information about the proposed Special Resolutions. See Special Resolutions below.
Members are requested to review the following information as the Strathcona Nordics Ski Club (SNSC) undergoes the transition to the new Societies Act, as required by the BC Societies Act. The purpose of the transition is to move our society’s bylaws and constitution onto the new electronic filing system
The transition process requires that the Constitution be a separate document containing only the name of the club, and the purposes of the Club, and that provisions for dissolution of the society be moved from the Constitution to the Bylaws.
As the SNSC constitution and bylaws had not been reviewed since the inception of the Club in 1999, it was decided by the Board of Directors, to undergo a thorough review and updating of the Bylaws.
Click on the highlighted text to see the following four documents:
1. The text of the 2018 Special Resolutions to be voted on at the AGM on November 3, 2018
2. The new 2018 Constitution - containing only the name of the society and the purposes of the society, exactly as written in the original constitution in 1999.
