A special meeting has been scheduled by the Pender Harbour Advisory Council for a vote on whether to change its name to the Pender Harbour and Area Residents Association.
BC Registry Services has accepted the name change and it would come into effect if the Pender advisory council’s membership vote in favour of it at the Feb. 4 meeting at the Grasshopper Pub. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
The council is also planning to amend a bylaw concerning the timing of notice for general meetings, “to align with the BC Societies Act and to reflect the growing membership,” according to the agenda for the meeting.
The Pender Harbour Dock Management Plan Working Group will also formally join the council as a committee at the meeting. “To facilitate this relationship, Sean McAllister was added to the Board in October 2018 and Bill Charlton was appointed to the Board in November and will be ratified at this meeting,” according to a release. Both McAllister and Charlton are members of the working group.
The release also states that the “DMP Working Group will also maintain its close relationship with the Pender Harbour and District Chamber of Commerce, as a working group.” The chamber handles the working group’s fundraising receipts, provides insurance and “furnished the initial impetus to form the DMP Working Group in 2015.”
Membership is $5.
