Notice of Motion/Pending Rule Changes

 

Mar 21, 2022

continued from front page...

 The Galloping Goose right of way is problematic, and many options were considered, with the best and cheapest being to run a line to the Property and tying in to the neighbouring premises. Hydro’s cost for this work would be approximately $24,000. It is felt as the needs of the club grow (electronic gate, possible caretaker premises for example), this may be the best time to take this project on. Treasurer Perry made the motion that funding up to $25,000 be approved to have BC Hydro run a line to the club property.  John (Boomer) Gronow seconded this motion.  This motion is deemed an Extraordinary Motion due to the quantum involved, and it shall be broadcast to the membership via email.  The Executive feels that due to current Co-Vid restrictions, this Extraordinary Motion warrants a longer notice period rather than the mandated two weeks, and that this matter shall be put to a vote at the May 17, 2022 Regular Meeting. 

 

Mar 23 addendum

An addendum by Director Dave McCullough to the email that was sent yesterday.  The main purpose of running power to Cycle Park is for the installation of an electric gate with swipe card pass and the cost for that is somewhere about $10,000. 
With inflation rising rapidly and unpredictably there could easily be a who knows how much shortfall in estimate ? 25% ?

So the total for the project for the two parts is $35,000+.

Per Rick Kool, the Feb 24, 2020 change detailed below will not be adopted as it created an undue delay to applicants, and discouraged membership.  This notice and the proposal may be removed from the website after 3 months(Feb 10, 2021).

"It didn't go down well because it took 2 months for a member to join, it was difficult to get them to 2 meetings in a row.

This really messed up the Membership infrastructure.  

Rick Kool" 

 

Feb 24, 2020 Posted at the request of the VMC Secretary Meaghan Symes 

 This is the current wording (the highlighted areas are the wordings for which a change is proposed).


I
C - ADMISSION Section 1. Application for Active, Junior and Senior membership in the Club shall be made in person at a general meeting, with application form completed with all contact information including address, phone number, e-mail, and signed by the applicant. A sponsor is required. The applicant shall then attend a future meeting, at which time the membership will consider the application and vote on it. No volunteer activity prior to making application is needed. New members are strongly encouraged to volunteer as soon as an opportunity arises. Section 2. Life and Honorary membership in the Club shall be by invitation. Section 3. Application for membership shall be accompanied by the initiation fee and (pro-rated) annual dues for the current year. Section 4. Applications shall be voted on at a meeting subsequent to the meeting at which the application was presented. Section 5. Applicants whose application receives not less than a three quarters majority vote shall be deemed to be elected to membership in the Club. Applicants who receive less than a three quarters majority shall be deemed to be not elected to membership, and the treasurer shall forthwith advise the applicant and refund the initiation fees and annual dues paid by the applicant. Section 6. Applications for Active or Junior membership from anyone under 19 years of age must be signed by the applicant’s parent or guardian

 

This is the proposed wording change (basically, the previous wording, but with the requirement to attend in person, and to have a sponsor retained)

 

The change proposed to the bylaws would be as follows:

 

Qualifications:

 

Under Sections 3, 4, & 5, They shall:

  

a)  Make application in person

 

C. Admission

 

Section 1   Application for Active, Junior and Senior membership in the Club shall be made in person, complete with all contact information including address, phone number, email, and signed by the applicant.  A sponsor is required.  No volunteer activity prior to making application is needed.  New members are strongly encouraged to volunteer as soon as an opportunity arises.

 

Section 4  Applications shall be voted on at the same meeting they apply.
