Future Meetings

The Next Regular KHCA Meeting

Our next regular KHCA meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on April 1, 2019 at the Kanata Recreation Complex on Terry Fox Drive.  

All Katimavik-Hazeldean residents are welcome to attend!  All KHCA members present can vote on business raised.

Public Notice:  Our current bylaws are under the "About" tab on this website.  At the April 1st meeting we will be discussing and voting on proposed bylaw changes, which are likely to include the following changes or additions to Articles:

1.  Introduction.  

We may seek to insert or change an Article or Clause so that the mandate of the Association is better stated and/or more easily understood. 

9.  Membership 
1.  Any resident may register his or her household for membership and on payment of the annual membership fee the household becomes of the association for a year.
- becomes -
1.  Any resident may register his or her household for membership.  Upon payment of the annual membership fee, all members of that household are considered members until November 1st of the applicable year.
17.  Privacy Policy
Eliminate Clauses 2, 3, 4
- replace with -
2.  All new or renewing members must sign a membership application form and agree to us storing their contact information and occasionally communicating with them using the BCC email field (or allow us to communicate with them by another method if email is not available).
3.  Only residents within the geographic boundaries of our community association may be members or hold a position on the KHCA Executive.
19.  Offices of the Association
Clauses 4 and 5 need to be changed unless the address ( changes from a blog to a website (we are currently creating a new website).  The main email addresses of our association should be changed to those we will be using in the near future. 
22.  Membership Cards and Fees
Clause 4 should be eliminated, since we no longer have membership cards.
25.  Fiscal Responsibilities
Although we have not experienced any accounting irregularities whatsoever, our Treasurer is currently implementing improved accounting practices in order to protect the integrity of the KHCA and its officers.   Although most accounting changes will likely be procedural in nature, we are serving notice here that there is the possibility for a change to this section of our bylaws.
27.  Operational Responsibilities
Clause 7 seems impractical at this point - the "Board of Directors shall normally meet at least once before a general meeting..."
It would be very difficult for some of us to have double the number of in-person KHCA meetings at this point, so this Clause may be eliminated.
29 and 30.
Add "have the co-signing authority necessary to the orderly conduct of the financial affairs of the association" to bring the VP and Secretary role descriptions in line with their ability to sign KHCA cheques (this was changed about 1.5 years ago to alleviate only two Exec members able to cosign cheques and this was causing problems when one was sick or on vacation). 
Add the responsibility to the Treasurer for the receiving of membership money and the issuing of membership receipts.
