Re: Resolution AGM2020#1
The CGSAC AGM 2020 is scheduled for October 24, 2020 at 12:45 pm Pacific Time. The physical location of the meeting will be the John Paul II Pastoral Centre of the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Due to Covid-19 protocols, only a limited number of members will be able to be physically present. All other members may join the meeting via Zoom. (The link for this meeting will be posted in the Members section of the website on October 24th.)
During this meeting, your CGSAC Board will bring forward to members the following resolution:
Whereas the board has undertaken a complete review
of all policies and procedures as announced at the 2019 AGM;
Whereas all policies are being revised and updated to be in compliance with CRA requirements, the CGSAC By-laws, and have a consistency of format, style and language;
Whereas the Policies and Procedures committee has invited feedback from numerous individuals regarding Policy 02 and Policy 03 including general CGSAC members, past board members, present board members, formation facilitators, committee members and the international community and responded to that feedback in revising the final drafts of these policies:
Resolution AGM2020#1: Be it resolved that the document titled CGSAC Code of Ethics, adopted at the AGM in 2012 and revised in 2014, be rescinded and replaced with CGSAC Policy 02 Foundational Statement of Principles and Values and Policy 03 General Member Code of Conduct
This is an ordinary resolution as it does not pertain to the By-laws. As such the decision requires a simple majority of 51% of the voting members present at the AGM.
Documentation to fully inform you about this resolution includes:
CGSAC Code of Ethics
Background and Rationale for Resolution
Policy 01 Statement of Purpose and Mission
Policy 02 Foundational Statement of Principles and Values
Policy 03 General Member Code of Conduct
Policy 12 Conflict Resolution and Corrective Action
These documents are available to you here.
There will be three Zoom Meeting opportunities to discuss this matter in advance of the AGM. If you are interested in participating in one please click here to register and receive a zoom invitation.
We hope you will attend both our National Gathering and our AGM either in person or by Zoom. Registration will be live for these events on the website within the week.
