Chilliwack FC will be holding a Special General Meeting, June 8, 2021 at 6:30pm via Zoom for the purpose of amending Bylaw 4e to reflect a change in our fiscal year-end from December 31 to June 30, effective for the six-month period ending June 30, 2021.
Click here to download a copy of the draft Constitution and Bylaws including the proposed amendment.
The change in fiscal year-end will better align our revenues and expenses to match with our program scheduling. The current year-end of December 31 falls in the middle of our biggest programs (Fall/Winter Development and Fall/Winter Recreational) so revenues are recorded in one year and half the expenses are recorded in the subsequent year. The change to a June 30th year-end will allow revenues and expenses to be properly matched for financial planning.
Per Bylaw 4h, “Constitutional or bylaw amendments shall be adopted only if approved by Special Resolution,” and per Bylaw 4i, “A Special General Meeting of the Association may be called by the Secretary on the instructions of the Chairperson,” and “shall be convened within forty-five (45) days of that request.”
Pre-registration for the Special General Meeting is required prior to June 1, 2021. All those who register and are eligible to attend will be contacted by June 1 with further instructions for joining the Zoom meeting.
