Annual General Meeting 2021

 

Further to earlier communications, MCABC’s AGM will take place during the Virtual Business Conference. At the meeting, a special resolution to update and replace the current Bylaws will be presented. The proposed updates are “housekeeping” in nature and provide additional clarity to changes proposed last year as part of the modernizing of MCABC’s Bylaws.

MECHANICAL CONTRACTORS ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COUMBIA

Notice of Special Resolution

Thursday, May 27, 2021

1:00 – 2:00 pm

The proposed housekeeping updates include:

  • Consistent use of defined terms (i.e. “Member”) and distinction between Member and Voting Member where applicable.
  • Further defining “Primary Contact” to capture the fact that a member might have two such contacts (i.e. one for voting membership purposes and one to serve as a Director)
  • Further clarification to Part 6:
    • Directors must be Affiliates, Contractors or Associates (or their Primary Contacts), provide that at least one must be an Associate/Primary Contact, at least 8 must be Contractor/Affiliate/Primary Contact; and at least a majority must be Contractor/Primary Contact.
    • The Immediate Past Chair position is only filled if such person is not already serving as a Director and, if such person is already serving as a director, the position of Immediate Past Chair will remain vacant (and may not be treated as a vacancy on the Board that can be filled).  NOTE: that if the immediate past chair is already a director, this would result in a board of 10 directors.
    • Directors will serve for a two-year term, except for the MIRA appointment who will serve indefinitely (i.e. until their appointment is revoked by MIRA) and the Immediate Past Chair who will serve for so long as he or she is qualified to serve in such position.  NOTE:  the Immediate Past Chair will serve for as long as the sitting Chair. 
    • The Chair must be a Contractor or Primary Contact
    • Officers are appointed for 1-year terms except for the Chair who is appointed for a two year-term

All proposed changes to the existing bylaws are tracked here. The text for the Special Resolutions is here.
