Amendments to Constituent Body Constitutions

The approved model constitutions are provided as template documents to assist constituent bodies in preparing their constitutions, facilitating the overall process.

The BLPC recommends that any amendments made to an existing constitution be identified by BOLD (for any additions) or STRIKETHROUGH (for any deletions). A rationale or explanation for the proposed changes must also be included at the end of the document, as well as the date of last ratification of the constitution, the date of the next AGM and a constituent body point of contact.

This will assist the BLPC in their review of the proposed or amended constitution and will also facilitate the decision-making process at the Board level. Your regional BLPC representative will gladly assist you with this process, if and when required.

For planning purposes, please note that the BLPC will be meeting on the following dates:

June 26, 2017

August 27, 2017

October 15, 2017

November 27, 2017

Amended constitutions or any other policy-related agenda items should be submitted ahead of time to your BLPC regional representative or to Julie Gagnon , Staff Resource to the BLPC.

I remain available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have with respect to the information provided above.

In solidarity,

Nancy McCune
Chair of the By-Laws and Policies Committee (BLPC)
