Clubs, Member University Alumnae Associations, Committee Chairs,
Regional Directors, and members of the Board of Directors
Completion of the 2011-2012 revision process of the Constitution and
The CFUW Constitution and
By-Laws Committee has completed the April 2012 Draft of the document
for the AGM 2012 and you will receive it in both English and French.
At its April 3rd meeting,
the CFUW Board of Directors unanimously passed a motion to accept the
Committee's report on the process, including the April 2012 Draft, and
forward it to the membership for its consideration at the 2012 AGM.
The members of the
Committee, Eileen Grant, Fran Mitchell, Rose Beatty, Leila Metcalf and
Grace Hollett, have conducted CFUW business with due diligence and we
thank them for their time and shared experience. They have
considered all suggestions and comments submitted in their preparation
of the document you now see.
I also thank the members of
the CFUW Clubs from across the country who dedicated themselves to this
revision process. Your involvement has helped to create a document of
which we as an organization can be proud. This active participation
confirms that CFUW is a vibrant group of intelligent women who can come
to a consensus.
This is a living document
and it, like all previous Constitution and By-Laws documents, will be
updated as required.
Let us gather together in
Victoria to complete the process and move forward with a revitalized
document for CFUW.
