The Mission Sports Council and the Mission Parks, Recreation and Culture Department are hosting a free clinic on the changes to the Societies Act.
This is critical to all organizations. Without making your organization compliant it is possible to lose your status as a not-for-profit organization. All societies have until November 2018 to have all required changes to their constitution, bylaws and reporting in place and functioning.
On Jan. 16, Kaine Sparks, manager of registries operations and Aurora Beraldin, policy and legislative analyst from the Ministry of Finance will be delivering a presentation on the new Societies Act and Societies Online System, followed by a question and answer session.
While this is being hosted with the sport community in mind, it really will be applicable to any community non-profit society so all are welcome to attend.
This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from those involved with the changes. Protect your organization by getting the right information and acting on it before the deadline makes it an emergency.
The clinic will take place at the Mission Leisure Centre on Tuesday Jan. 16 starting at 6:30 p.m.. It is free to attend.
Registration is required so call 604-820-5350 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
