To all members in good standing of the Prince Edward Radio Club

Revised legislation requires that Federally incorporated not-for-profit organization apply for a certificate of continuation if they wish exist after October 24, 2014. This legislation also affects our current bylaws.

The agenda will include:

  1. A motion to adopt the new bylaws (a copy is attached)

  2. The election of a new board of directors. The initial slate of candidates will be the current executive officers.
