CIPS Nova Scotia hosts Town Hall Meeting on Proposed Constitution and By-Law Changes

On June 21, 2011 CIPS Nova Scotia hosted the first Provincial town hall meeting on the proposed CIPS National Constitution and By-Law changes.   Through the town hall meeting CIPS members in Nova Scotia were able to learn firsthand the implications of the proposed changes, and to provide their input.  Ken Chapman, FCIPS, I.S.P., ITCP   chair of the National Constitution Committee (NCC) gave a presentation highlighting the reasons for bringing forward the changes, as well as the implications of many of the proposed changes. Members of the National Constitution Committee (NCC) were also on hand to assist in answering questions.  Questions covered included such topics as voting rights, quorum, the proposed funding model and the process for both member and government approval of the proposed changes.

The NCC hopes that the CIPS Nova Scotia town hall meeting will be the first of a series of town hall meetings held across the country providing all members with the opportunity to participate in discussions and to provide their input on the proposed constitution and by-law changes.  Member input received will be considered by the NCC and the CCITP in preparing the final changes for presentation to the membership in a National referendum vote this fall. 

The proposed Constitution and By-Law changes have been posted on the National website at:
