As a result of a Special Resolution passed by members at their 2017 annual general meeting, the Arthur Erickson Foundation is now governed by new bylaws.
The bylaws are custom-made for AEF, and designed to dovetail with British Columbia's updated Societies Act legislation. This legislation was intended by the BC government to modernize and update the rules for the governance of all not-for-profit organizations incorporated in the province, including AEF.
AEF's new bylaws, available by clicking here, have been completely rewritten since the 1993 originals. Notable revisions include those dealing with electronic participation at general and other meetings (bylaws 5.2 and 9.3), the nomination and election of new board members (bylaw 7.3), and rules for committees and councils (part 12).
The new bylaws came into effect on October 6, 2017.
