Congregational Constitution and Bylaws

Congregational Constitutions and Bylaws require regular maintenance and upgrading.  For instance, the recent pandemic necessitated changes to how we attend our AGM and Council meetings, and how we vote.  To help with the process of review and approval of any changes, a guideline for BC Synod has been created. You can find it here. 

The Government of BC made some changes to the Societies Act last May and published the attached guide to the changes. Highlighted are the changes that are most likely to interest you.

You can access the entire Societies Act here.  

If you have further questions, or if you would like a copy of the ELCIC Model Constitution for Congregations, please contact the synod office
