Our Annual General Meeting is coming up:
PSPS AGM 2017
Held at UBC Tapestry: 3338 Wesbrook Mall
6:30 – 8:30pm
You can find the agenda and last year’s meeting minutes here:
Join us for tea and snacks at 6:00, and after our business has been concluded we will have an egaging talk by Tamsin Baker and Pamela Zevit from the South Coast Conservation Program. They will speak on Species at Risk and Diversity by Design.
Additionally, we need to reconcile our constitution and bylaws with the new BC Society’s Act. The BC Societies Act came into force November 28, 2016, and we are required to transition our constitution and bylaws to coincide with it. Over the past year, the board of directors has dutifully cross referenced our current constitution and bylaws with that of the new Act, and written a transition proposal. In doing so, bylaws have been added, changed, removed, reworded, reformatted and moved. Each bylaw is prefaced by an explanation as to how it has been impacted by this transition using the above terms in the report below. Some bylaws that were only relevant to our period of incorporation have been removed, while others have been changed to better reflect how the society runs in practice: duties of officers, etc.
At our AGM we will vote to submit this new constitution and bylaws document to the BC Societies Registry, and we will once again be in compliance with current societies legislation in the province.
