*Explanation of the CCMBC Member Representative:

 

The Multiply Bylaws and the Legacy Bylaws have been written to comply with the Canadian Not-for-Profit Corporation Act (CNCA). These bylaws state that a single individual will be selected by the CCMBC Executive Board to be the CCMBC Member Representative who will vote on behalf of the Canadian Conference of MB Churches.

 

The CCMBC Member Representative will vote on one motion at the Multiply Annual General Meeting:

  • To elect the Multiply board members.

 

The CCMBC Member Representative will vote on three motions at the Legacy Annual General Meeting:

  • To approve the Consolidated Legacy Audited Statements,
  • To appoint the CCMBC Investments auditor, and
  • To appoint the Legacy auditor.

 

The motions presented give the CCMBC Member Representative clear instructions on how to vote on each of the motions. By following this procedure, the CCMBC Executive Board is ensuring that related organizations are being accountable to the MB churches in Canada.
