CPAWS 2012 Annual General Meeting

The CPAWS 2012 AGM will take place on

Saturday, November 10th - 1:00pm

Best Western Plus Victoria Parks Suites, Penthouse Salon
377 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, ON [ map ]

As a result of new legislation governing federally incorporated non-profits, CPAWS National must adopt new Articles of Continuance and new Bylaws consistent with the new legislation.  The proposed new articles and bylaws are designed to meet the requirements of the new legislative regime and, for the most part, are not substantively different from our existing bylaws. However, we are proposing some substantive changes to the bylaws - see, in particular, provisions addressing membership and member meetings, which can now be held entirely by electronic means.  We have also taken the opportunity to redraft and reorganize the bylaws to make them easier to understand.  Many provisions have been removed from the bylaws because they are now addressed in the legislation or regulations.

The proposed new Articles of Continuance are available here (PDF).  The proposed new Bylaws are available here (PDF).
