Endnote: Modernizing the Association’s Bylaws

May 11, 2024 The Tablet

In 2023, the BCPhA Leadership team retained external legal counsel to undertake a complete review of the Association’s bylaws. This project was planned prior to the pandemic but was deferred until 2023. Changes to the BC Societies Act and governance requirements over recent years meant it a was time to modernize the Association’s bylaws to comply with legislative amendments and current best practices in association governance.

At its January 2024 meeting, the Board of Directors approved the new bylaws and passed a motion to recommend that the modernized bylaws be brought forward to the membership for review, prior to being presented for approval at this year’s Annual General Meeting, planned for May 31, 2024. 

In February and in May, all members were invited to webinars to learn more about the bylaw modernization process and to ask questions.
