Speaker’s night on October 16: governance update and Q&A

Warm up with a hot drink and good company this month at the EAC-NCR Speaker’s Night.

Join Greg Ioannou, former EAC president and original member, who will discuss changes in federal legislation affecting the EAC. Provide input on how the EAC will need to change to comply with the legislation, and ask questions on how these changes affect you.

The EAC is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit corporation that is affected by the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2011. In response to the new legislation, the EAC’s National Executive Council developed a Governance Task Force in August 2012 to review current regulations and policy. The Task Force is preparing documentation based on the new legislation which requires member approval before moving forward.

This legislation could affect our membership classes, branch structure and accountability, and national executive council elections. The Task Force gave an initial presentation at this year’s Annual General Meeting, and is now visiting branches and twigs to talk to members.
