MSABC Bylaw UpdatesPosted: March 26, 2016
A recent Societies Act change requires that all not-for-profits have their bylaws available in electronic format. This has prompted the board of directors to not only digitize but also modernize MSABC’s bylaws.
As we work through the bylaws at top of mind is MSABC’s past, present and future. Our current bylaws were last reviewed in 2000 and certain aspects have since become irrelevant. In addition, Governance is in need of modernization to reflect current best practices.
Our end goal is to create user friendly, plain language bylaws that will help guide us through the various processes under which we operate. Bylaws are the backstop to the policies that govern our very dynamic organization.
In early April 2016 we will publish the proposed changes to the bylaws for your review. Ultimately the board will ask you to vote on the adoption of the new bylaws at this year’s AGM in Richmond.
