Report of the By-Laws Committee
March 2024

Cosimo Crupi

The By-Law’s Committee met virtually on Jan 25th, 2024. Present at the meeting were Cosimo Crupi (Chair), Kevin Welgush (Co-Chair), Marc-Andre Gobeil (President’s Rep), and Henri Vodon (Technical Advisor).

A referral was received from the National President regarding an administrative error in our Bylaws. The committee reviewed the referral and provided a recommendation to the National President to amended Regulation 13 to resolve the administrative error. Also, by doing this, it was also recommended that Bylaw 10 be removed entirely, and the remaining By-Law’s be renumbered. The recommendation has now been accepted, and amendments to the BY Laws and Regulations will be made.

Lastly, the committee reviewed Regulation 7 and propose the following Recommendation to executive council.
