Notice of Bylaw Amendment
The FMTA Board of Directors' intend to introduce an amendment to FMTA By-Law 1, s. 2 (Membership), to be voted upon at the organization's Annual General Meeting. Under Section 8 of the FMTA Constitution, 14 days' written notice to members is required in order to introduce a by-law amendment at an AGM. Such an amendment must be passed by a two-thirds majority of the meeting. Please receive this as notice of the proposed by-law amendment.
The proposed by-law change will clarify the meaning of the term "immediate family" in reference to by-law s. 2(b) which excludes "[o]wners and managers of rental residential property, their immediate family and their employees..." from membership in the FMTA. This phrase, as it stands, is not clear as to what constitutes "immediate family." It will also provide further detail into the exclusion of "[o]wners and managers of rental residential property" and the scope of that exclusion.
Hope to see you there!
