Proposed Constitution Amendments

Hello folks,

I have had the great opportunity to work with our Constitution Revision Committee to help amend our Constitution for the future. There are three proposed amendments:

1. Revisited and Updated Constitution (Attached)

There are some notable style changes to match our update policy manual as well as updates to numbers. We adjusted quorum at General Meetings from 30 to 60 since the growth of our school needs more representation. Some other changes include more in-depth definitions of?terms such as Honorary Members, Active Members, and more general definitions. Also in this update, we define our symbols as each the crest and the logo. We also added a clause for Presidential candidates such that “candidates shall have previously served a minimum of one semester on the Executive or served a minimum of two terms on the Directors”. Whereas prior it was only elected officers,??now any member of Council can be recalled if one third (1/3) of current ?Active? members or three (3) times as many ‘Active’ members that elected the member, whichever is less sign a petition and nominate another ?Active? member to be a candidate for the position.

2. Vice-President Student Associations

In the case the first amendment is approved, there is an amendment to title of the position of “Vice-President Student Associations” to be changed to “Vice-President External Affairs”

3. Vice-President Finance

In the case the first amendment is approved, there is an amendment to title of the position of “Vice-President Finance” to be changed to “Vice-President Money”

Cheers!
