    Notice of Special Resolutions

    Notice of Special Resolutions

    To allow for post-pandemic hybrid and online general meetings, BC non-profits and societies (including the FSA) have recently been advised to amend their by-laws.

    On January 25, 2023, at our in-person only FSA General Meeting (Town Square A&B), we will be voting on a Special Resolution changing our by-laws to facilitate hybrid/online general meetings (with other minor by-law amendments to reflect current practices). All amendments can be found here. Our current bylaws are available here.

    We hope to see you on the 25th!



    1. Changes presented in red: where only the by-law clause numbering/lettering is red indicates housekeeping change to make numbering/lettering consistent or correct mis-numbering/lettering.
    2. The special resolution cannot be amended.
    3. Per the BC Societies Act, a special resolution passes at a general meeting by at least 2/3 of the votes cast by voting members present. The FSA by-laws prohibit proxy voting.
    4. The special resolution, if it passes, does not take effect until it is filed at the Registrar’s office in Victoria.
