Ratification of Draft 6 Constitution and Bylaws was not approved, but delayed until the February AGM, allowing time for membership feedback to January 15, 2016 and for a new Draft prior to the AGM.
Two issues had much discussion: members did not have sufficient time to respond to the C&B Draft proposal; and an age minimum for new members.
To promote responses, Draft 6 C&B will be posted to http://wrco.ca website. Members may submit comments and feedback via the website, or by email to the president.
We are pleased to welcome William, who is accomplished on alto, tenor and soprano saxophones, as well as clarinet.
