• PROPOSED AMENDMENT: Bylaw 5.03 b) be amended by deleting the words “at least 30 voting” and inserting the words “the number of”
If adopted, bylaw 5.03 b) would read:
A quorum at the Annual General Meeting shall be the number of members in attendance.
Rationale: Often, there is difficulty achieving the quorum of 30 members. Many other organizations face this challenge and have amended their bylaws to change the quorum to the number of members in attendance. The Board recommends adoption of this amendment.
