Hello again CCE Members,
Just a reminder about our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, Oct 8th. This is the usual AGM in some ways -- presenting you with a report of our annual activities, and electing a new executive -- but with one very important addition: approving a special resolution that is required under the Not For Profit Act, a resolution that includes new bylaws. Voting in favour of this resolution allows us to continue being a non-profit, essentially.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about what's in there. Everything in the bylaws, though, is mandated to be in there by either a) the Not for Profit Act and/or b) the Bunreacht, which is CCE's own set of bylaws and guiding principles.
If you cannot come to the meeting, you are still welcome to vote on the bylaws. To do so. please send Maureen Maher an email, and state the following:
"I, [name], vote FOR/AGAINST [choose one] the special resolution of Oct 8th, 2014, to apply for a Certificate of Continuance under the Not-for-profit Corporations Act and enact the new bylaws."
These electronic votes will be counted and added to the tally of votes at the meeting.
Once again, the meeting details:
Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 at 7pm
University of Ottawa, 70 Laurier Ave. (corner of Laurier and Waller) Arts Building, Room 509

Or consider taking public transit: the Laurier station on the Transitway is right by the Arts Building
And a reminder that memberships are now due -- payment accepted at the meeting or online here:
Hope to see you on Wednesday,
Secretary, on behalf of the CCE Ottawa executive
Secretary, Ottawa Branch
