Dear CACCN member.
On behalf of the National Board of Directors of the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurse, this letter is to provide notice to all members of the proposed revision to the Association Constitution and Bylaws, which will be brought forward for approval at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on September 19, 2010, in Edmonton, Alberta, as part of the annual Dynamics Conference.
Our existing constitution and bylaws were originally approved by the membership in 2003 with the last revision approved September 2009. Following discussion at the annual general meeting and review of the constitution and bylaws at the National Board of Directors' meeting in March 2010, it was determined the revision of September 2009 to Article VII, Officers, Section 9, Dynamics, required further clarification:
9.1 The Chair for Dynamics will be a member of the Board of Directors
The National Board is seeking to revise Article VII, Officers, Section 9, Dynamics, as follows:
9.1 The Chair for Dynamics will be a member of the Board of Directors at the time of appointment.
9.2 The Dynamics Conference for which the Director is responsible will be completed within one year of the end of the Director's term.
9.3 There shall be a Board of Directors' member on the Dynamics Planning Committee, as an ad hoc member.
The National Board of Directors will be seeking your comments and approval of the proposed change at the 2010 Annual General Meeting. Please refer to page 11 of this journal or our website at www.caccn.ca, if you are unable to attend the AGM, but wish to submit a proxy vote. Proxy votes must be received by CACCN National Office by no later than midnight on September 13, 2010.
