Bylaws of the Association (Amended December 2005) Annual Meeting 1 The Annual Meeting of the Association shall be held between the 15th day of September and the 15th day of December of each calendar year and the actual date of the meeting shall be set by Council according to the provisions of the Act. Conduct of Meetings 2 (a) All General Meetings of the Association shall be held in the manner provided by Section 12 of the Act. A quorum shall be 50 members present in person. (b) A written request that Council call a General Meeting pursuant to Section 12(4) of the Act shall be accompanied by a notice setting out specifically the business to be transacted at such meeting. (c) If neither the President nor any of the Vice Presidents are present within 15 minutes after the time appointed for holding the meeting, or if neither the President nor any of the Vice Presidents are willing to act as Chair, then the members present shall choose someone of their number to be Chair. (d) The Chair may, with the consent of any meeting, and shall, if so directed by the meeting, adjourn the meeting from time to time and from place to place, but no business shall be transacted at any adjourned meeting other than the business left unfinished at the meeting from which the adjournment took place. When a meeting is adjourned for 30 days or more, notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given as in the case of an original meeting. Save as aforesaid it shall not be necessary to give notice of an adjournment, or of the business to be transacted at any adjourned meeting. (e) At any meeting a resolution put to the vote of the meeting shall be decided on a show of hands, unless a ballot is demanded by at least 3 members before or on the result of the show of hands. Unless a ballot is so demanded the Chair shall declare that a resolution has, on a show of hands, been carried or lost. An entry to that effect, made in the book of the proceedings of the Association, shall be conclusive evidence of the fact, without proof of the number or proportion of the votes recorded in favour of or against the resolution. (f) If a ballot is duly demanded it shall be taken in such a manner as the Chair directs, and the results of the ballot shall be deemed to be the resolution of the meeting at which the ballot was demanded.
