2019 Annual General Meeting – proposed Bylaws change

The following Bylaws change proposal was approved by the board to be considered by the membership at this year’s AGM.

Bylaws , Article IV, section B.1.f

Current language:

A family membership consists of two or more individuals related by blood or marriage living in the same household.

Proposed language:

A family membership consists of multiple people with a single primary address with at most two over the age of 24.


This change is intended to have two effects.

  1. Allow for more flexibility by deleting the “blood or marriage” requirement and allowing family memberships based on shared residence alone.
  2. Insure that adult children begin maintaining their own memberships instead of remaining indefinitely on parental memberships.

The specific age requirement matches the newly adopted age limit for student memberships.
