On Sunday, April 7 2019 VPH is holding an Extraordinary General Meeting of the membership (EGM) to discuss changes to the by-laws made, and passed by, the board of directors.

The reasons we have re-written the by-laws are:

  1. To make it possible for people  who earn money on VPH stages to take part in the larger decision-making by being on the board of directors
  2. To make it easier for the organization to keep up with the community’s needs

In order to finalize these changes, we need people, you, to come out and vote!

There is also one small change made to the VPH constitution. It was made to bring it into line with point 1 above.

The agenda, new by-laws and constitution are available as a single pdf here. As always, the current by-laws are on the VPH website here.

In the new by-laws there are many mentions of the new VPH policy manual. All the materials made reference to in the new by-laws are already included, but as with these kinds of documents, the policy manual is in progress. At the meeting we will make all the relevant sections available, and the whole will always be available to membership if these by-laws are ratified.

If you have any questions in advance of the meeting, or would like more information, please contact the board at admin@vancouverpoetryhouse.com. Also contact us if you would rather read the new by-laws on the Drive. We’ll send you a link.

Please note: under our current by-laws, you must be a member to vote, but you may purchase or renew your membership at the outset of the meeting.

The meeting will take place in the 5th floor, W-Room which the City has allowed us to use free-of-charge for the purposes of this EGM. The boardroom is located on the 5th floor of the same building where VPH has its offices: 111 W Hastings Street.

The meeting will start at 2PM and is scheduled to last until 4PM.

Note: the first hour is business. The second hour is socializing, poetry and cake. Meet the new staff! Schmooze with your board of directors 🙂
