President’s Reception, Membership Appreciation and Annual General Meeting
Thursday, November 23rd
The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is a driving force in our community, offering a unified voice, business support and various valuable benefits to our members. Each year we take the opportunity to communicate with our members on our activities, successes and financial status of the organization, ensuring that we continue to be accountable to our membership.
As such, we invite you to this year’s President’s Reception, Membership Appreciation and Annual General Meeting on Thursday, November 23, 2017 at the Travelodge Hotel from 5:00-7:00pm. We want to take this opportunity to not only share with you our successes over the past fiscal year, but also recognize those who have contributed to our organization and to celebrate our members during this special event. We will also be highlighting our strategic plans and activities, as well as presenting proposed amendments to our bylaws.
The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce requires a biennial review of our bylaws and governance policies. In accordance with our policies, the Board of Directors has reviewed the current bylaws, along with the Boards of Trade (BOT) Act and there are a number of proposed mandatory changes that are needed in order to bring us in compliance with the federal BOT Act. In accordance with Article 16, point 99 of our current bylaws:
“By-laws may be enacted, amended or repealed by a majority vote at any meeting of the members called for that purpose, provided that a concise written summary of the proposed changes shall be given with the notice for the meeting at which they are to be considered.”
The changes are presented in mark-up form in the attached file and we request you review these changes and consider attending the 2017 President’s Reception, Membership Appreciation & AGM on November 23rd in order to celebrate with us, as well as to cast your vote on the proposed amendments.
We thank you for your support and commitment and look forward to continuing to work on your behalf.
