    BYLAW UPDATE ALERT!
     
    We will be recommending that the membership approve new bylaws for the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce!
     
    The majority of the changes we're proposing were recommended by a lawyer to ensure that we're compliant with the Board of Trade Act. Other changes were made to provide clarity and ensure alignment with our internal policies and procedures.
     
    A few notable changes include:
    • Section 8: Clarity around membership eligibility for government departments, political parties, political associations and individual politicians
    • Section 19: Clarity around eligibility to participate on the Board of Directors
    • Section 26: Maximum terms of office have been added to our bylaws
    • Section 31: Clarity around the process for filling vacancies on the Board of Directors
    • Section 33: The addition of a Conflict of Interest section that is aligned with our internal policies
    • Section 42: Clarity around the Executive Director's role as Secretary
    • Section 44: Clarity around the role of the Secretary
    • Section 62: Substantial updates to Indemnification
    • Section 73: Clarity around the requirement for a full audit
    • Section 76: The addition of an "Annual Summary" section
