Extraordinary General Meeting - 7:00pm Monday, September 14th, 2020 Via Zoom
The intent of this meeting is to approve the revised Constitution and Bylaws.
Under our current Bylaws, Part 3, 12. ‘The Directors may, when they think fit, convene an extraordinary general meeting.’
This is to allow the Society to deal with special business in a timely manner. There can only be items of business on the agenda and cannot replace an AGM.
Part 3, 16. 3) ‘A quorum is 3 members present or a greater number that may be determined.’
The Board feels that 3 is not representative and has approved the number of 10% of the membership, which is currently 193. This would mean a quorum would be 20 members which we feel would be reasonable considering the unusual circumstances in which we are currently functioning.
The meeting will be by ZOOM and an invitation will be sent to all members. The information regarding the revisions to the Constitution and Bylaws are posted on the website. https://www.ddbotgarden.bc.ca/about
