2020 By-Law Revisions

Spring 2020

In April, 2020 the CLPNM Board of Directors approved a revision to the by-laws to allow for the temporary continuation of the current Board of Directors. This change was introduced as part of the CLPNM’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of the by-law change is to provide for stability in the governance of the CLPNM during a time of uncertainty and change.

Fall 2020

In September 2020, the CLPNM Board of Directors approved further by-law revisions to clarify registrants’ obligations, with respect to the payment of fees and costs, during the registration renewal period each fall.  Note: these by-law changes do not affect registration fee amounts. These changes will be on the agenda for ratification at the 2020 Annual General Meeting of CLPNM on December 8, 2020. If ratified, these by-law changes will take effect in the fall of 2021, during the renewal period for 2022 registrations.
