Our bylaws are our society’s administrative operating manual. They define: the size of the board and how it will function; the roles and duties of officers and committee chairs; the rules and procedures for holding meetings, electing officer and appointing committee chairs; and, other essential corporate administrative matters. Bylaws are not public documents, but by making them available we’re supporting our desire to insure accountability and transparency.
Our bylaws, including the most recent amendments, were ratified by a majority vote of our members present at our annual general meeting, held on January 28, 2017. The copy of our bylaws can be downloaded as a PDF document by selecting the adjacent document image:
