|Part 9 – Dissolution of a Branch of the Society
|9.01 Upon the intended winding up or dissolution of any Branch of the Society, for whatever reason, the assets remaining after payment of all legal debts and liabilities shall be turned over to the Directors of the Society (i.e. The Provincial Association) who shall assume full responsibility for the use and disbursement of these assets, giving strong consideration to the wishes of the dissolving Branch and meeting with all legal and moral obligations.
9.02 Any Branch deemed to be in violation of Bylaw 2.03 or in any way bringing disrepute to the Society may be, after a majority vote of members present at a general meeting of the Society, censured, suspended or expelled from membership in the Society. If such action is taken the Directors of the Society shall ensure that all proper and legal steps have been taken to de-register the Branch cited.
9.03 Bylaw 9.02 above notwithstanding, the Directors of the Society shall, before taking any such action, ensure that the Directors of the Branch, and the membership, receive a fair and courteous hearing for the purpose of resolving and correcting the offending situation.
