Proposed bylaw change.
The BCLS approached the member clubs to get their fees in earlier, as delayed submission of money from the clubs was causing a cash crunch for the BCLS in January.
As a result, the Penticton Club changed their membership year to collect dues in September. The unintended result of this change has posed a problem for new members. Someone could join the club in September, and not be covered by BCLS insurance until January.
To address this issue, it has been proposed that the bylaws be amended to put the Penticton Club year back to January 1st to December 31st.
Should the bylaw change be approved at the November meeting, be it resolved that membership dues collected between September and December 2018, cover the period ending December 31st 2019.
