Message from The President re: Special General Meeting
I want to update you as to the results of our Special General Meeting held on Friday, March 12th, 2019. The club voted unanimously to accept the new By-laws as presented. The new bylaws will now be filed with the Province of Alberta for certification.
In the mean time your board will start the process of transitioning from our old bylaws to our new ones. Most notably will be the reduction in size of the board from it’s current 15 members to the new 10 person board. To be fair to the current board we will be reviewing everyone’s status regarding their term and notifying the membership of how many openings we’ll be filling at our next AGM. By reducing the number of Board Members, we potentially will not have any openings for new board members at that time.
Part of our transition is aligning our current processes with the new dates spelled out in the by-laws. This process should be completed no later than the end of May and at that time you’ll be notified of board openings. Subsequent to this, going forward, you will be notified of board openings by April 1st of the current season. Nominations will be open until September 15th of that year. The AGM will take place before October 15th. You will be notified of the AGM at least 21 days prior.
The new by-laws are currently posted on our web site, under the Board of Directors tab. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with them. Let me know if you have any questions or comments, I can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for a great season, see you all in the fall.
President, Lethbridge Curling Club
