Possible Changes to Constitution
Submitted By Melanie Bezaire on Tue 03 26, 19
Motion to Make changes to the constitution and bylaws at the AGM

I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A NOTICE OF MOTION THAT AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE SCPGHA

I WILL MOVE THE FOLLOWING AMMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION.

A-ARTICLE 4 – MEMBERSHIP

1-The Board of the Corporation shall consist of: Past President, President, Treasurer, Secretary, House League Convenor, and Travel Convenor and eight Directors.

Eight Directors at-large will be elected for the following appointed positions, Registrar, Ice Scheduler, Webmaster, Referee in Chief, Equipment Manager, Sponsorship/Fundraising Convenor and Director of Risk Management.

Change to:

1-The Board of the Corporation shall consist of: President, Past President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and six directors.

Six directors will be elected for the following positions: Registrar, Ice Scheduler, Referee in Chief, Director of Risk Management and 2 Convenors.

B-ARTICLE 7-ELECTIONS

SECTION 2-NOMINATING COMMITTEE:

Remove this completely and renumber SECTION 3 AND SECTION 4 accordingly to SECTION 2 AND SECTION 3.

C-ARTICLE 7-ELECTIONS

SECTION 3- VOTING PROCEDURES

Directors-up to eight directors may be elected, it will be elected on the basis of a simple majority on one ballot. The top 8 totals will be the Directors.

Change to:

Directors-six directors shall be elected; they will be elected on the basis of a simple majority on one ballot. The top 6 totals will be the Directors.

D-ARTICLE 9-Order of Business

The following Order of Business shall be a guide for use at all General Meetings of this Corporation.

6-Elections

7-New Business

Change to:

The following Order of Business shall be a guide for use at all General Meetings of this Corporation.

6-New Business

7-Elections

E- ADD

 ARTICLE (#) Standing committees of the Corporation

1-The Standing Committees of the Corporation shall be set up annually at the first meeting following the AGM and consist of:

a-       Sponsorship/Fundraising/Equipment Committee

b-      Social Media/Advertising Committee

c-       Coach Selection Committee

d-      Player Development Committee

 

In conclusion I feel that these changes will stream line the board and remove some of the unnecessary positions. Also by moving some of the duties to committee jobs it may bring in volunteers who are willing to help but may not wish to be on the board or attend meetings. Other parts of the proposed changes are mere housekeeping changes to allow for the change in the number of board members.

Lastly, with these changes we will also have to amend the portion of the bylaws which refer to the responsibilities of SCPGHA members. I hope to have those changes prepared and to you shortly so they too can be distributed and posted so that they can be voted on at the AGM.

Respectfully,

William M. Atkinson

Director at Large
