BC Societies Act Transition Guide
New legislation is in place that all 'societies' must abide by and BC Rugby's Governance Committee, with support from Fasken Martineau LLP, has created a guidance document for any Rugby Club or Association to successfully transition in accordance with the new BC Societies Act. The transition must be completed by November 28, 2018.
The transition guide contains a step-by-step process for you to follow as well as a 'rugbyfied' bylaws template and is available in PDF and Word (for cut & paste ease).
If any Club or association would like further support, the various members of the Governance Committee are willing to make time to provide guidance and share insights on the process that BC Rugby has completed. Please contact the CEO or your local Rugby Development Officer to arrange this support. For contact details, please visit bcrugby.com/staff/.
BC Rugby has three Rugby Development Officers that are dedicated to supporting Clubs grow and develop grassroots Rugby. If your Club needs support or has any questions, please contact your Club’s Rugby Development Officer.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in starting a new Rugby Club, please contact the Rugby Development Officer that most closely covers your location.
