Proposed CommunityWise Bylaws 2016

*Please note: an incorrect version of the Proposed CommunityWise Bylaws was replaced on May 17th. Apologies for the error in section 6.3 in the previous incorrect version. It should have read, "At all meetings of the CommunityWise Resource Centre, unless otherwise required by the Act or the articles of the Corporation, decisions will be made by 75% vote of the members present at the meeting." 

The following amendments to the bylaws to be approved at the May 19th 2016 AGM.

Please contact CommunityWise staff if you have concerns or questions.
