Once again, it is time for our Annual General Meeting.     As usual our meeting will be held in The Old Church ( corner of King St. and First Ave. ) in Smithers at  7:30 PM – August 17th.

Items we will be discussing this year:

The new digital channels that we added to our Hudson Bay site in Smithers.

The possibility of adding new digital channels to our Houston site.

Adoption of new constitution and bylaws to conform to the new Societies Act.

Upcoming changes to all of our remaining analog TV signals.

Efforts to raise additional funds.


New Constitution and Bylaws

The new Societies Act requires that all existing societies change their constitution and Bylaws to conform with the new act by 2018.

Rather than modify the existing constitution and bylaws, most societies are adopting the new model constitution and bylaws included with the new act ( with any necessary modifications for local circumstances ).

This is the path I am suggesting that we follow.      I am including links to a number of documents relating to this transition.      They can be read online or downloaded as a pdf file.

The first document is our new Constitution – HSRS constitution 2017

The second document is the new Bylaws –  Model_Bylaws

This next document covers the changes and what impact these changes will have on existing Societes.      new_societies_act_-_impact_on_pre-existing_societies

Finally, for those who want all of the details of the new Regulations under the New Societies Act.     Societies_Regulation 

To download any  of these documents, simply right click on the link and choose           ” save link as ”        in the menu that pops up.

If you have any questions about these changes,  feel free to contact me by phone: 250-847-2838 or email: arharris@tvsmithers.com
