The first agenda item at the meeting will be to vote on the Special Resolution. A minimum of 75% of those members present at the meeting must vote in favour of the Special Resolution in order for it to pass.

Our regular General Meeting information items will follow the vote on the Special Resolution.

Background Information
The Erlton Community Association is currently operating on its original Bylaws registered in 1979. Bylaw reviews were completed in 1996 and 2009 however neither version was successfully registered even though they were approved by the membership.

Based on the Extraordinary Meeting April 9, 2014 and feedback from the May 13, 2014 General Meeting, we are presenting the 2009 version of the Bylaws, with some modifications, so we can formally adopt the most recent approved version.

The modifications to the Bylaws drafted and approved in 2009 are as follows:

  • Quorum – Article 7.1
  • Board of Directors – Article 5.2 and 5.8
  • Voting rules – Article 8.2

Minor changes were made to conform to the Societies Act of Alberta and for the sake of consistent wording. These changes did not significantly change the intent of the 2009 Bylaws.

Please, come out and vote.
