AN INVITATION TO JOIN OUR TEAM!

Posted by / in Information /

Are you looking for a fun and fulfilling way to serve your community? Are you passionate about your favourite dog park and willing to work actively to make Kilcona the best off-leash area in Winnipeg?

As a member of Kilcona Park Dog Club’s Board of Directors,  you’ll have the perfect opportunity to use your knowledge, skills, life experiences and insights to give back to a cause you care about.

On November 23, KPDC will elect its 2018 Board of Directors. There are two vacancies that must be filled if the club is to have the resources it needs to move forward with priority park improvements – bringing potable water into the dog park and installing a drinking fountain and rinse station.

Directors act as ambassadors for KPDC, attend 6 meetings a year, and manage the affairs of the club between meetings. These are voluntary positions; however reasonable expenses are paid. Terms are for one year.

All KPDC members over the age of 18 are welcome to serve on the Board of Directors. Prior Board experience is not necessary. KPDC, in cooperation with Volunteer Manitoba, provides not-for-profit Board training to all Directors.

Interested in serving on the Board and/or want more information? Please email Donna Henry at president@kpdc.ca.

Proposed By-law Amendments

The amendments and the rationale for each amendments, is as follows.

1. In the title of the document, and articles 1.1, 1.2 and 15.1 – the name of the club is amended from Kilcona Park Dog Club Incorporated to Kilcona Park Dog Club Inc. to align with the club’s legal name in KPDC’s Articles of Incorporation.

2. Articles 8.8 and 14.1.1 – amended from “The Board shall inform members of the Annual General Meeting via e-mail, on the Club bulletin board and at other appropriate locations at Kilcona Park.” to “The Board shall inform members of the Annual General Meeting via e-mail, on the Club bulletin board at Kilcona Park and on the Club’s Facebook page.” The intent of the amendment is to reflect the actual and most effective practice of communicating with members.

3. Article 9.5 – amended from “Voting at every General Membership Meeting shall be by secret ballot.” to ” “Voting at every General Membership Meeting shall be by show of hands except where a member requests a vote by secret ballot .” The intent of the amendment is to reflect the actual practice while still allowing for ballot voting.

4. Article 11.7.2 – amended from “In accordance with the Corporations Act of Manitoba, the President shall file, on the last day of the anniversary month of incorporation, an Annual Return of Information with the Companies Office, 1010- 405 Broadway Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3C 3L6.” to “In accordance with the Corporations Act of Manitoba, the President shall file, before  the last day of the anniversary month of incorporation, an Annual Return of Information with the Companies Office, 1010- 405 Broadway Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3C 3L6.” The intent of the amendment is to reflect actual practice and allow for flexibility.
