General Rationale for Bylaw Review:
The Carlington Community Association (CCA) last accepted revisions to its bylaws at the Annual General Meeting held on May 10, 2011. Taking the time to regularly review and update an organization’s bylaws is key to ensuring that the organization is compliant with the current state of the law and that the bylaws operate in a manner that reflects the organization’s current size, programming, and membership needs.
In Ontario, non-profit organizations are currently governed by the Ontario Corporations Act. However, the Ontario Not-for-profit Corporations Act (ONCA) is in existence. Although it has not yet been proclaimed into force, when this happens provincially-incorporated not-for-profits (of which the CCA is one) will have a three-year period to transition to the new legislation. Therefore, it is best practice to use this review to ensure that the CCA’s bylaws comply with the upcoming legislation’s requirements. In this document, the relevant legislation referred to is the ONCA.
This review document does not discuss all of the articles in the current CCA bylaws. It contains two sections of proposed amendments:
1. Amendments that we advise are accepted as shown. These include amendments that clarify text and amendments that are required by the ONCA.
2. Amendments that include various approaches for CCA members to consider. In these cases, we have included ideas for the future content of an article. However, it is up to the CCA membership to decide what it would like to implement.
As of January 2017, the CCA bylaw review has been undertaken by two volunteers: Erika Kiss and Anna Du Vent. We are open to input about the proposed changes included in this document. We will accept initial input until March 5, 2017. After that point, we will bring together all of the input that we receive and draft revised articles that will be circulated in early April 2017. These revised articles will reflect the majority of input that we receive. The CCA membership will vote on the revised bylaws in a general meeting on April 18, 2017. If you would like to be further involved in this process please contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy for your input and assistance.
Please join us this Wednesday Jan 18 from 7-9pm for the next CCA General Members meeting! All members and residents are invited to come and get updates on CCA activities, community events, and a report from Councillor Riley Brockington.
