Dear Members,

I am pleased to invite you to an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Alliance to vote on proposed amendments to ABLE BC’s bylaws, followed by an Industry Networking Reception.

Event Details

DATE: Wednesday, May 10, 2017

TIME: Extraordinary General Meeting will take place from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm followed by a reception from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

LOCATION: Labatt Beer Institute in Vancouver (1148 Homer Street, Suite 402). A security guard will be at the entrance of the building to provide access.

WHAT: The Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) we will be asking members to approve an increase in the number of ABLE BC Board of Directors from 10 to 12.

Full Motion: That Bylaw 4.1(a) be amended to increase the number of elected liquor licensee directors from five to seven.

This bylaw change will formalize our recent Memorandum of Understanding with the BC Private Liquor Store Association (see this link for more details). It will allow us to elect two former directors of the BCPLSA (Randy Wilson and Damian Kettlewell) to ABLE BC’s Board of Directors.

The EGM will be followed immediately by a reception to celebrate our united industry and welcome new members to ABLE BC. Labatt Beer and appetizers will be served.
