Rules of order
The national executive council has created a guide to help members and the chair with the rules most likely needed at AGMs.
The Editors Canada bylaw states that meetings will be conducted according to Robert’s Rules of Order (section 3.09). Various policies and procedures/guidelines may also come into play at an AGM.
While many association members are friends or colleagues, the AGM is a formal meeting. In order to have a successful meeting, the business of the AGM is conducted through motions.
Editors Canada respects copyright legislation. In order to protect its ongoing projects, it will ask volunteers to assign copyright for products they create for the association to Editors Canada.
