Meeting of Members May 9, 7pm

A meeting of members is scheduled for May 9 at 7pm to ratify the updated Articles and By-laws. These documents are updated to comply with the new ONCA guidelines for not-for-profit corporations which came into effect this year.  Members should review and send any questions or comments to info@omckra.com before April 30.   All members have been provided with the link to the zoom meeting. 

New By-laws document may be downloaded here.

The Sport Law group worked with the OMCKRA board resulting in the following changes / recommendations  incorporated into the new By-laws:

  • "Purpose of corporation" will be removed from By-laws and maintained in the incorporation papers.

  • Policy documents will be removed from By-laws and maintained separately.

  • The existing member definition will be maintained adding a note that they be ‘registered.. under a ‘Racing Member” fee structure. 

  • As existing, members cannot vote until they are at least 18 years of age (at the time of the meeting).

  • The fiscal year will be stated as April 1 to March 31 rather than “like CKO”.

  • The membership will elect all 7 directors, none will be appointed.

  • Members will elect 3 Directors per year, for 2 year terms with board roles rotating each year.

  • As existing, Directors will choose roles (usually in first board meeting).

  • Three ‘Officers’ will be listed in the By-laws; Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.

  • The Past President Role will be removed.

  • Other Director roles listed in the policy area may include Vice President and Race Secretary.
