You don’t want to enshrine less than optimal governance and membership structures or practices in your new bylaws! And operating with bylaws that don’t match your practices is quite risky. You want to make great choices about your desired membership and leadership structures and processes, so:

  • Save money by having key governance discussions before the legal work starts.
  • Reduce your risk by knowing the impact of the Ontario Not-for-profit Corporations Act (ONCA) on future structural changes.

The Garthson Leadership Centre has experience conducting high quality, practical governance reviews for national and provincial organizations, and in establishing new governance structures. We can collaborate with your lawyer as you wish, or recommend great lawyers specializing in nonprofits, to ensure your governance choices are reflected in new bylaws or bylaw amendments.
