A Special Annual General Meeting to be held:

Location: Fort Vermilion Seniors Centre
Date: Tuesday June 12, 2018
Time: 8:00pm Pizza snack will be available with meeting starting at 8:30pm sharp
Meeting Particulars: Draft agenda will be prepared for the meeting along with copies of amended Bylaws

We have been directed by Service Alberta to amend (2) key articles within our Bylaws (Article 7.1 & Article 10.1). The Bylaws can be found on our website at www.fortvermilionlodgeboard.ca

It has also come to our attention that our current Bylaws, not being in good standing with Service Alberta, could be presenting processing concerns with Revenue Canada regarding our Charitable Organization application. Therefore, your Board has decided not to wait until our next regularly scheduled Annual General Meeting.

Thank you,

Board members of the FVASELB1788
