Law for Non Profits is offering an upcoming session of its workshop, "The New Societies Act: What You Need to Know." The session will take place at the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture on March 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
There are more than 27,000 non-profit societies in BC, providing services and programs that touch virtually every citizen. The BC Society Act, which provides the rules for governance and incorporation of non-profits, officially proclaimed important changes on November 28, 2016. There will be a two year transition period by which time all societies in BC will have to make the switch to the new Act.
All organizations that are incorporated under the current Society Act must plan to complete their “transition application,” with revised constitution and bylaws, by the time of their 2017 AGM. This workshop will provide the information on the bylaw and policy changes necessary for your organization to effectively make the transition.
