Under Section 34 of the Professional Governance Act (PGA) and FPBC Bylaw 4, FPBC registrants can bring forward resolutions for consideration and approval at general meetings or annual general meetings.
A registrant may deliver a written request to the registrar for consideration of a proposed resolution at a general meeting. The written request must:
- contain the written text of the proposed resolution;
- identify the registrant as mover of the resolution, and at least 10 additional registrants as seconders of the proposed resolution;
- contain the names, signatures and registration numbers of the mover and all seconders of the proposed resolution; and
- be received by the registrar at least 35 days before the date set for the general meeting at which the proposed resolution is to be considered.
Once received, the registrar must deliver notice of a resolution proposed by a registrant to every registrant, lay councillor and lay committee member at least 21 days before the date set for the general meeting at which the proposed resolution is to be considered, if such notice was not previously included in the notice of the general meeting.
Except as provided in Section 34 of the PGA, a resolution approved at a general meeting does not bind the council, any committee, or any officer, employee or agent of FPBC in the exercise of its or their powers or in the performance of its or their duties under the Act or any other enactment.
