CCA Moves to Comply with Federal Legislation for Non-Profit Organizations

Posted on September 29, 2014 by Catherine Ross

On September 10, 2014, the CCA Board approved a motion to bring our association into compliance with Federal Legislation for non-profit organizations. The proposed By-Laws and Articles of Continuance are posted in the Members’ Section on the CCA website.

The revised by-laws permit two classes of membership in CCA: Federated Members (Provincial Camping Associations) and individual members appointed by the CCA Board as Executive Officers.  Camps that are members of a Provincial Camping Association retain ALL previous benefits such as continued participation in the insurance program and permission to display the CCA logo.

A special meeting of CCA Members by conference call will be held on Wednesday, October 8 at 12pm Eastern time to address this motion.

Please refer any questions and/or a request for conference call details to Jill Dundas, President at jill.dundas@sympatico.ca.
