BCMB SGM

December 3 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Important notice from BCMB re our SGM:

 

Dear BCMB Churches and SGM delegates,

Earlier this week, our legal counsel brought to our attention that a ruling by the BC Supreme Court, which had implications for all Not-for-Profit organizations (including BCMB), has placed our current voting structure outside the Societies Act. This had direct implications for our upcoming SGM. Therefore, after much deliberation and consultation between the Executive Board and legal counsel, the Executive Board made the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel our SGM.

 

Instead of an SGM, we are hosting a 1-hour information session at the same time as our originally scheduled meeting with the same zoom link. You are invited to participate on December 3rd, from 9am to 10am, to ask questions related to the ruling of the BC Supreme Court, the implications it has for BCMB, why we were forced to cancel our SGM, and hear our proposal on how to make amendments that will allow all our churches to participate and vote going forward. Kevin Boonstra, our legal counsel, will be available to answer questions you might have on the issues listed above. Please note that we will focus our conversation on Friday only on items directly related to our voting and choosing of delegate structure for General Meetings.

 

We had full intention to present our draft bylaws, set aside time for a robust conversation, and vote to adopt these bylaws this Friday. Unfortunately, due to the recent ruling, we are forced to take a different approach. We remain committed to an open and transparent process for the widest possible engagement of our BCMB family of churches in this process. We hope to see as many of you as possible this Friday.

 

Respectfully

Denis Federau
