BYLAW SERVICES
Times changeā€¦and so should your Bylaws.
Housing Co-operatives are often frustrated in dealing with situations with members and others because their Bylaws are outdated, do not address the modern realities of Housing Co-operatives and in many situations do not give the Board any recourse to remedies.
SACHA and Bryan & Company Calgary LLP are working together to give Southern Alberta Housing Co-operatives access to Bylaws that have been comprehensively reviewed and redrafted.
The Bylaw service being offered by SACHA and Bryan & Company Calgary LLP includes review and consultation on the new Bylaws with legal counsel to ensure that the Bylaws are adapted to meet the needs of each specific Co-op. Your Co-op Board will meet with legal counsel to review and discuss the template Bylaws, consider additional provisions that may be added to the new Bylaws to address common situations within your Co-op and approve a final draft that will assist in the smooth and efficient operation of your Co-op.
For more information on the service, please contact Brenda Davies at brenda.sacha@shaw.ca
