During the 2021/2022 AGM a question was raised by the attending membership with regards to the process of how the 2022/2023 budget and fees are to be approved, and due to uncertainty around the process at the AGM the agenda, the item was tabled. Following the meeting, the 2022/2023 Executive Committee of Jason Foster, Jennifer MacLeod, Greg Crowell and Christien Lefebvre, with the help of Matt Oxford, reviewed the Constitution to determine how this was to occur. The only reference to fee approval is listed in Article XI: Registration on page 15 which states, “The fees to be collected for pre-registration and at the walk-in registration shall be the fees approved by the Executive Committee and the membership at the proceeding Annual General Meeting.”
As a result, during a meeting of the Executive Officers on June 14, the following motion was made:
Motion made by Greg Crowell to approve the financials as presented at the Executive Officer meeting of June 6, 2022. Seconded by Jennifer MacLeod. Motion carried.
Given that the Association requires the 2022/2023 fees to be set and approved prior to being able to open Registration, President Jason Foster is calling a Special Meeting (pursuant to the Constitution Section X on Special Meetings: Special Meetings of the Association may be called by a vote of the majority of the Executive Officers or at the discretion of the President. Any business that can be conducted at the AGM can be conducted at a Special Meeting.) for June 23, 2022 at 8:00pm. We will post details of the location shortly. At this meeting, the 2022/2023 budget and proposed fee structure will be presented again to the membership and a motion will be made to those in attendance to approve the fees as presented. The proposed fee structure will be posted on the BDMHA website on or before June 21, 2022. The 2022/2023 budget and registration fees will be the only agenda item of this special meeting.
At the conclusion of the Special Meeting, provided the fees are approved as presented, BDMHA will post the AGM PowerPoint slides to the BDMHA website, which contain all material covered during the AGM and the 2022/2023 Fee Structure.
