Proposed By-Law Amendments - AGM Notice page 4 of Handbook
A series of motions will be made to restructure the Board of Directors.
The position of VP BMX will be removed and a position called "Member at large" created. As the association evolves it is important to attract members who bring a general perspective to the board. Specific roles and responsibilities will be assigned as required by the board. The BMX committee remains unchanged and will continue to function as a staff supported program committee with reporting directly to the board.
3.1 (b) replace the word "and BMX"
(c) remove "a club Liaison", and replace with "a club Liaison and a member at large"

3.24 replace "Vice-President BMX" with "Member at Large"
3.25 (d) delete entire section and replace with "the Member at Large shall have the responsibility for duties as may from time to time be established by the board"
