BC Athletics AGM Weekend - November 18, 19, 20 2016!

2016 BC Athletics Annual General Meeting & 2016 Annual Awards Banquet Weekend – DATE CHANGED

 November 18, 19, 20 2016 – Vancouver Airport Hilton, Richmond BC.

2016 BC Athletics Annual General Meeting:  November 18, 19 2016

2016 BC Athletics Annual Awards Banquet: Saturday, November 19, 2016

As stated on the Government of BC website “The Societies Act is new legislation that was passed in the spring of 2015 and will come in to effect on November 28, 2016.  It governs how societies (Not-for-profit corporations) are created and run in B.C. and includes significant updates to allow for more flexibility in how societies operate, while still protecting the public interest”

Under the existing act, that is in effect until November 28, 2016, BC Athletics is able to apply for and get approval to have our AGM more than the required time frame of within 6 months beyond our financial year end date of March 31.  Without approval for an extension, we would have to have our AGM by September 30. However, this extension of time would not be allowed under the new act and we would be in contradiction of the act after the new act comes into place on November 28, 2016. Hence, we need to have our AGM before November 28, 2016 this year.

BC Athletics will review the positioning of the AGM and Awards Banquet for 2017 and future years.
