As part of ACSLPA’s work to serve our members and the public, efforts to streamline our bylaws are ongoing. As per Bylaw 17.2 (Amendment of Bylaws), ACSLPA Council is seeking member feedback on three proposed bylaw amendments. Council will consider member feedback, modify the bylaw changes as needed based on the feedback, and then approve the revised bylaws if it is appropriate to do so.

Details of the proposed changes to the bylaws and information on why the amendments are being proposed are available through the following link: Overview of Proposed Changes (PDF).

Three amendments to the ACSLPA Bylaws are currently being proposed:

Bylaws Section 2.10 - Cancellation of Registration or Membership (PDF)

Bylaws Section 3.1 - Reinstatement of Registration – Regulated Members (PDF)

Part 12 - General Meetings of the College (AGM) + Consequential Changes to Part 9 - Council (PDF)
