The VVCC AGM will be held on * POSTPONED* at 7 pm at 315 Laxdal Rd.

*************************************

March 5, 2020

In keeping with the rules that govern our club, we are obligated to post any Constitutional changes that will be proposed 30 days ahead of the AGM.  The Following are the Changes that will be proposed:

General changes:
Replace all references of “Executive” with “Board”
Move wording from section 7.0 to 11.0 for better readability.
 Wording changes: 
  • Section: 8.0 
Proposal: Add sub point “f” to provide clarity on what happens if a Board Member resigns part way through their term.
Rational: No current language exists to guide such a process.
Proposed wording:
If a Board Member resigns part way through their term, any level of Board Member can assume this vacant role if a two-third majority of the Board agrees to it. Any Board Member who fills the vacancy shall hold the position for the duration of the original term. No vacancy can be filled by a non-current Board Member. 
  • Section 9.0 
Proposal: Add language to ensure to sub point “a” continuity of Board and provide clarification of election process if an incumbent changes mid-session.
Rational: Currently, there is nothing preventing the Board being entirely dissolved at an AGM and a new Board of novices voted in. This scenario would have negative consequences for the continuation of programming and operations.
Proposed wording:
Executive positions shall be for a two-year term, with elections for the President, VP Operations, VP Programming, Female Hockey, and Softball Convenor taking place in even years, and elections for VP Sports, VP Finance, Secretary, Male Hockey, and Ringette being held in odd years.
  • Section: 9.0
Proposal: Add language to sub point “e” for clarity
Rational: Spirit of “e” was to ensure someone couldn’t assume an Officer role upon immediately being voted onto the Board, but language was not reflective of this.
Proposed wording:
A person must fulfil the role of a Director or General Member position for at least one year prior to holding an Officer position.
BY-LAWS
  • Section: 16.15 
Proposal: Create section 16.15 to include organizational flow chart, and update chart. This chart existed in the constitution but not in its own subsection.

  • Section: 17.4 
Proposal: Move bartender job description to this section to be listed with other jobs
  • Section: 20.0 
Proposal: Add language to sub point “o” to reflect what is practiced:
Proposed wording:
For youth sports, the sub-committee will determine the allocation of ice time based on the percentage of Varisty View constituents in each sport (male hockey, female hockey, ringette). Once each sport has been given its allotment, the sub-committee will ensure the ice is equally divided among all Varsity-View-hosted teams. If the sport has no Varisty-View-hosted teams, the ice in question will be given to that sport’s association.
  • Section: 21.9 
Proposal: Remove “hockey” sub point “i” as this incumbent would not staff ice hockey
  • Section: 21.11 
Proposal: Change “Supervisor” to “Director” for consistency in job title
Proposed wording: Nursery School Director
  • Section: 24.0 
Proposal:  Insert Social Contract Terms and Conditions to 24.2 and create 24.2(1) to record Bartenders’ manual in order to better consolidate information

The AGM is open to the public and we welcome new members to come and be part of our Board through the Elections.

Volunteer Appreciation will follow the meeting.

(VV Board and Staff with Madison Bowey and the Stanley Cup in the Splex Jul 28/18)

********

NHL champion Madison Bowey  brought the Stanley Cup to Varsity View Community Club on July 28 at 3 p.m.

Bowey, defenceman for the Washington Capitals hockey team, is a former Varsity View Falcon and he will bring hockey’s greatest trophy back to his childhood club for a party. All were welcome to attend this free event.

“My hockey career began here, at this great community club in this wonderful hockey city, and this is my chance to pay tribute to everyone who helped me get started, and encouraged me to keep going,” Bowey says. “It’s a great honour to have this privilege and I can’t wait to celebrate back home in my community.”

Traditionally, players and staff of the championship team each get a day to take the trophy to a destination of their choosing. Madison chose to share it with his community, where it all began.
