Constitutional review

11 09 2007

As part of the effort to revive the Westboro Community Association, the Steering Committee decided that it would be a good idea to review the Association’s Constitution/By-Laws to see if any changes should be made. The last time the Constitution was amended appears to be 1995, so a smaller working group was formed to review the existing document and recommend changes.

WCA was incorporated in 1977 and its By-Laws (also called a Constitution) set the “rules” for how the organization will operate, including rules about membership, election of directors, and financial matters.

Over the past few months, the working group discussed and drafted, and then presented a document to the Steering Committee, which is in support of the proposed changes. The new document is longer than the 1995 version, and we hope that it will help us to modernize and reinvigourate the Association in a positive manner. The proposed document will be presented at the AGM on September 19, 2007 and members will be asked to vote to accept the changes. Please take a moment to review the existing Constitution and the proposed replacement. (Revised copy is here in PDF format – original document is here.)

Please contact, or leave your comments below if you have any questions, concerns or comments on the proposed document. We look forward to seeing you at the AGM.
