Notice of Special Resolution

Amendments to the Chebucto Community Net Society By-Laws have been proposed and will be voted on by Chebucto Community Net members by Special Resolution.

The Chebucto Community Net Society By-Laws can be found online here:

On Chebucto's text service, when using Lynx type gbylaws and hit Enter or Return to read the by-laws.

Rationale for proposed change to the By-Laws:

It is customary for organizations to take advantage of the knowledge and expertise a past Chair has accumulated during his/her time in office. In many cases the past Chair has served in other Executive positions on the Board and has a number of years of Board experience. Further as a result of activities he/she may have undertaken as Chair he/she may have knowledge of discussions, activities or negotiations which may not be known by any other Board member but will be valuable to the Board.

At the 2007 AGM a member of the Executive will move that clause 20, under "Officers" be amended so as to add the position of Past Chair to the list of Officers.

Proposed changes to the By-Laws:

[ 20. The Officers of the Society shall be the Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Past Chair. The offices of Treasurer and Secretary may be combined. The Officers with the exception of Past Chair shall be elected by the Directors from amongst their numbers at the first meeting of the Directors following each Annual General Meeting. The Directors may elect two persons to fill any position as an Officer, in which case that position shall be designated with "Co-" prior to the proper name of that Office. In such case, each individual filling that office shall have authority to exercise the full powers and authorities vested in that Office by these by-laws. ]

Further that clause 25 under Directors be amended so as to change the number twelve to thirteen.

[ 25. The number of Directors shall be thirteen. The subscribers to the Memorandum of Association of the Society shall be the first Directors of the Society. ]

Further that clause 29 be amended by adding after the word "Directors", "with the exception of the Past Chair".

[ 29. At the first annual general meeting of the Society and at every succeeding annual general meeting, those Directors, with the exception of the Past Chair, whose terms expire at that general meeting shall retire from office but shall hold office until the dissolution of the meeting at which their successors are elected and retiring Directors shall be eligible for re-election. ]
