Constitution & Bylaws
As an incorporated not-for-profit society, BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society complies with the provisions of the BC Society Act. This Act requires BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society to have a constitution and bylaws that set out the rules that govern our activities.
A new BC Societies Act comes into force on November 28, 2016. It will repeal and replace the old Act. Transitioning to the new Act requires all BC societies to file bylaws compliant with the updated legislation. BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society members approved revised bylaws at a Special General Meeting on September 22, 2016 - they will come into effect on November 28, 2016.
The revised bylaws better reflect BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society’s particular governance structure and needs. Our constitution remains unchanged – BC Balance and Dizziness Disorders Society will continue “to provide information and support for persons with balance, dizziness and all vestibular disorders and to develop awareness of the issues surrounding these disorders.”
