A Draft version of the

CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS OF

QUALICUM & DISTRICT CURLING CLUB (the “SOCIETY”)

is available for download CLICK HERE

Changes in Provincial Law governing non profit organizations require Qualicum and District Curling Club (Q&DCC) to update its Constitution and Bylaws to meet the new regulations set out in the Societies Act 2015. The transition deadline for submission of this document is November 1st, 2018.

Here is some background information:

The provincial Government passed the Societies Act regulation in 2015 stipulating that all non-profit organizations must meet the standards of the Act by November 2018.

Your Board formed the Societies Act Committee (SAC) in August of 2017 to start the review process of our constitution and by laws in order to meet this standard.

The members of SAC include Q&DCC Board members: Rob Diack, Robert Jensen, Eileen Leachman and Peggy Burfield and non-Board members: Peggy Aikman, Sandy Horsland and Lena West.  Your SAC committee has been working not only to review and redraft the document to ensure it conforms to the legislative requirement, but also to accurately reflect the needs of our club.

A preliminary draft of our revised Constitution and Bylaws has been sent to Curl BC Board Member, Peter Muir for review and comments. Our Club was recognized by the media for its commitment of being one of the clubs working with Curl BC to meet our obligation and to be consistent with other BC Curling Clubs.

A Special General Meeting will be held 3:00 pm on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at the Curling Club where the proposed Constitution and Bylaws will be the single item on the agenda for final discussion and a vote for approval.

Prior to the Special Meeting

1. The draft Constitution and Bylaws will be available for review by all members. Hard copies will be provided at the club and will be posted on the website shortly.

2. The Committee will be hosting three (3) discussion groups in the club lounge for any member to discuss the information in the revised Constitution and Bylaws. Dates are:

Monday, January 22nd – from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm;

Friday, January 26th – from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm;

Saturday, January 27th – from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

3. How Can You Help?

Please review the “DRAFT” document – Constitution and Bylaws of Q&DCC, and should you any feedback and/or comments, please attend one of the above noted Discussion Group meetings. Thank you for your support and interest.

Next Steps:

An updated draft will be compiled by the end of January and sent again for review by Curl BC.

A Special General Meeting is scheduled on February 17 (to seek approval of this document and for it’s submission to the government).

Other work in progress: to draft Policy and Procedures Manuals for the club’s operations.

It’s “Our Club”; so let’s make it the best it can be.
