Member-funded Society & Notice of AGM
At the Special General Meeting on December 9, 2018, the SAA membership voted to transition to a member-funded Society.
Background: A new Societies Act came into effect on Nov. 28, 2016, and within two years, every Society must transition to the new Act. On transition, each society will be asked whether it wishes to designate itself as a “member-funded society”. For more information, please read this document which was circulated prior to the SGM.
Member-funded societies have less restrictions, such as requiring only one Director. From a workload perspective, this may not be the most practical approach so we need to determine the structure of the new board moving forward. The focus of the AGM will be to confirm the new board structure and constitution changes, as well as elect members to the new positions. The AGM will be held after spin class on the morning of Saturday January 27, 2018 at our sponsor Back in Motion in Richmond. More information will be provided closer to this date.
