CCA Moves to Comply with Federal Legislation for Non-Profit OrganizationsL’ACC entame sa transition à la nouvelle Loi sur les organisations à but non lucratif

On September 10, 2014, the CCA Board approved a motion to bring our association into compliance with Federal Legislation for non-profit organizations. The proposed By-Laws and Articles of Continuance are posted in the Members’ Section on the CCA website.

The revised by-laws permit two classes of membership in CCA: Federated Members (Provincial Camping Associations) and individual members appointed by the CCA Board as Executive Officers.  Camps that are members of a Provincial Camping Association retain ALL previous benefits such as continued participation in the insurance program and permission to display the CCA logo.

A special meeting of CCA Members by conference call will be held on Wednesday, October 8 at 12pm Eastern time to address this motion.

Please refer any questions and/or a request for conference call details to Jill Dundas, President at 10 septembre 2014, le conseil d’administration de l’ACC a adopté une motion visant à mettre l’association en conformité avec la nouvelle loi fédérale sur les organisations à but non lucratif. Les règlements administratifs et les statuts de prorogation proposés ont été publiés dans la section des membres du site Web de l’ACC.

Les règlements révisés prévoient deux catégories de membres : les membres fédérés (association provinciale des camps) et les dirigeants nommés par le conseil d’administration de l’ACC. Les camps membres d’une association provinciale des camps retiennent TOUS leurs avantages, y compris la participation au programme d’assurance et la permission d’afficher le logo de l’ACC.

Une assemblée extraordinaire des membres de l’ACC sera tenue, par conférence téléphonique, le mercredi 8 octobre à midi (12 h HNE), pour discuter de la motion.

Merci de diriger toute question ou demande pour les coordonnées de la conférence à Jill Dundas, présidente, à
