[Event Report] Canada Day 2015 (General Meeting)

The CCCJ Board of Governors called for a General Meeting that was held at the Tokyo American Club, on July 1st, Canada Day.

At the meeting, Governors put to vote the two motions below to the CCCJ's membership.

  • A motion for the Chamber to study changing its legal status from an unincorporated ‘club’ without legal status to an incorporated entity with full independent legal status and protections.
  • A motion to defer the 2015 CCCJ General Election to the CCCJ Board of Governors to the end of October  

With regards to the first motion, CCCJ Chairman highlighted the chance of diversifying the CCCJ’s income streams post legal incorporation, as well as a more legitimized chamber – with regards to administrative details on banking and finance – as key arguments.

On the second motion, CCCJ members were advised that our chamber had been obliged to move three important activities back until the fall from our original schedule of early summer due to extraneous circumstances relating to the health of one of the Chambers’ key volunteers.

Both motions were carried, with no votes against.
