New Societies Act Workshop: What You Need to Know

Have you heard about the new Societies Act for BC? The deadline to update your constitution and by-laws is November 2018. For your 2017 AGM, you need to be making those changes.

The Skills Centre and PLEO, with support from other partners, have put together two workshops to provide an opportunity for any non-profit society to learn about the changes and how to manage the required transition. One of these workshops is specifically for housing societies and their particular questions and needs.

The workshops are being offered on Thursday, June 8th: one for all societies and one for housing societies.

Please visit www.lawfornonprofits.ca to register.
