Bylaw Revision – Membership Year Transition

The previous post advised of a Special General Meeting to pass a Special Resolution to replace the current Constitution and Bylaws with a revised version. Revisions include rewording of the bylaws referencing the membership year, membership classification definitions and membership fee schedules.

How will the transition to a new membership year be managed?

All memberships expire at the end of the membership year. At present, all WRPC memberships will expire December 31, 2017.

Current fees for membership will remain the unchanged. Pro-rated memberships will no longer be supported.

Once the Special Resolution is passed and the Registrar of Societies grants approval, the bylaw changes will take effect. This means that all memberships that are due to expire December 31st will be extended and will then expire March 31, 2018. The new membership year will then commence April 1st, 2018 and expire March 31, 2019.


  • When dues are received from a renewing member in Jan/Feb/Mar 2018 the effective date of membership will be April 1st as their current membership will not terminate until March 31st 2018.
  • When dues are received from a new member or returning member in Jan/Feb/Mar 2018 the effective date of membership will be the date the dues are received and will terminate March 31st the following year 2019.


  • When membership dues are received any time between April 1st and December 31st, the membership will be valid from date of issue until March 31st the following year.

o   Example:  dues paid August 20, 2018. Membership valid from August 20, 2018 until March 31st, 2019.
