Bylaws Changes 2017

A proposal will be made at the May 18, 2017 Annual General Meeting to repeal the 2013 CommunityWise Bylaws  (click to view) and replace them with the Proposed 2017 CommunityWise Bylaws (click to view). This is due to the large number of proposed changes. 

Summary of changes:

  • The usage of gender neutral pronouns.
  • Clarification of and edits for consistency of CommunityWise terminology.
  • Removal of legacy communication methods (ex. Fax) and allowing electronic communications as a way of offering notice.
  • The consistency of the Board of Directors, specifically:  Ensuring that external Community Representatives will never hold a majority over members of the Society.
  • Other changes that better reflect operational realities in 2017.

**Any member who would like to see a marked up version of the proposed bylaws to be able to discern the exact changes made can request a copy by emailing:**
