Reminder: CBTU Chapter GMM on Sept 19, 2016 in Ottawa

Dear members,
In accordance with our current CBTU Chapter bylaws, we will be holding 2 separate General Membership Meetings over the course of the next 2 months to hold 3 consecutive votes on proposed changes to our Chapter bylaws (motion attached). The first meeting took place in August in Montreal, and the motion was unanimously supported. Please take time to read through the motion that shall be voted on.
The second GMM shall take place in Ottawa on September 19. The third meeting shall take place in Toronto on October 3rd. If the proposed bylaw change is passed at all three meetings, they shall take effect at the end of the 3rd meeting. The new Executive Board positions would then be elected at the November 14th annual meeting, also in Toronto. We hope to see you at the meetings! agenda-sept-19
