Membership Code Review - Request for Input

Membership Code Review
We are getting close to our goal of presenting a revised Membership Code to our eligible voters for an amendment vote. To date, we have had three community consultation sessions and we have also received input from a number of Community Members individually. This feedback has shaped the wording of the current draft Code that was sent out in April and we continue to make revisions to ensure that it reflects the will of the Community as a whole as much as possible.

We would like to have an amendment vote on the draft Code within the next 6 to 8 weeks. As it is important to make sure that everyone has had a full opportunity to share their thoughts and comments on the draft, we encourage all Community Members to provide us with any further input. This can be done electronically, by phone, or in person. The deadline to provide further input is August 30th. After that we will make the final revisions based on all feedback and then present the Code for a vote.

We encourage members to provide input to us on the draft Code over the next few weeks and look forward to making a change with regards to a Membership Code that is reflective of our community.
