TAKE NOTICE that a Special Meeting of the members of Springbank Minor Hockey Association (“SMHA” or the “Association”) will be held via electronic means on Thursday, March 11, 2021, at 7:00 pm.  The Special Meeting will be hosted and conducted through Zoom.

The Special Meeting is being called solely for the purpose of approving and ratifying the new amended and restated bylaws of the Association (the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”).  A draft copy of the Amended and Restated Bylaws was sent to all members by email on January 27, 2021, to solicit any comments or feedback from interested members.  Since the Board did not receive any comments or feedback on the Amended and Restated Bylaws from members by the stated response deadline of February 10, 2021, the Board has unanimously approved the Amended and Restated Bylaws and is now asking members to approve, ratify and adopt the Amended and Restated Bylaws to replace and supersede the current bylaws of the Association.  A final copy of the Amended and Restated Bylaws (which is identical to the draft previously circulated) is attached to this email and is also available on the Association’s website.  If approved, ratified, and adopted by members at the Special Meeting, the Amended and Restated Bylaws will become effective upon registration thereof with the Registrar of Corporations for Alberta pursuant to the Societies Act (Alberta).  The Association will then conduct its annual general meeting for 2021 pursuant to the Amended and Restated Bylaws.

The text of the special resolution that members will be asked to consider and pass at the Special Meeting is as follows:

BE IT RESOLVED THAT:

The Bylaws of Springbank Minor Hockey Association be and are hereby amended as follows:

The “Bylaws of The Springbank Minor Hockey Association 2009” previously filed with the Registrar of Corporations for the Province of Alberta are hereby rescinded and are to be replaced in their entirety by the “Amended and Restated Bylaws of The Springbank Minor Hockey Association March 11, 2021”.

Please email secretary@springbankhockey.comif you wish to participate in the Special Meeting.  In order to participate in the Special Meeting, all members wanting to attend must submit their email request to the Secretary by no later than 7:00 p.m. Calgary time on Tuesday, March 9, 2021.  This will give the Board time to ensure that all members interested in attending the Special Meeting are members in good standing and to provide members with the Zoom link necessary to access the Special Meeting.

Proposed 2021 SMHA Bylaws
