Extraordinary General Meeting – Dec 18, 2023

New Information, updated as of Saturday, December 16, 2023

1. Updated financial information

In our commitment to financial transparency and in light of information brought to our attention by our financial contractor, we have updated our 2023 year-end projections incorporating financial information available to date. The original information was prepared by management in an effort to meet extremely tight deadlines. The revised 2023 year-end projection corrects errors found in the prior information.

Please note that these updated documents are not audited financials, but the organization’s projections, which continue to be refined on an ongoing basis. These draft documents are only shared for financial transparency and in no way should be interpreted to be those financial statements that we are obligated to provide under s. 35 of the Societies Act. Those will be available in June 2024.

2. Reduced insurance premiums and revised 2024 budget

The original insurance premium increase communicated was based on quotes provided by our insurer in November 2023. After the EGM held in November, the insurance broker came back with an adjusted quote, lowering the 2024 cost instead of increasing it. With that and other new information in mind, management prepared a revised draft 2024 budget which will be further fine-tuned and presented for Board review and approval in January 2024.

3. Updated  and newly added member-proposed motions:

As a result of the new information now available, the Board of Directors has made the decision to adjust its path and not increase membership fees for 2024. Indeed, the Board is adjusting its original motion and now asking members to approve a revised membership fee structure that will remain unchanged from 2023.  Please note that the proposed membership fee structure for 2024 is available below.

In addition, two new motions supported by the Board of Directors have been put forward by members and will be discussed during the EGM:

– Motion 1: That a Race Committee be formed

– Motion 2: That a Hop On Review Committee be formed

The updated EGM agenda and meeting rules can be found further down this page.



A Cycling BC Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) was held virtually on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, to vote on the proposed membership dues structure for 2024. As part of the meeting’s proceedings, a motion was proposed, which was approved by a majority of those present, to postpone the ratification of the proposed membership dues until Cycling BC can provide more details.

In response to the motion, Cycling BC has provided additional details on this webpage surrounding the proposed membership dues and will hold another Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to be held online via Zoom on Monday, December 18, 2023, at 7:00 PM (PST).

As per Cycling BC’s bylaws, membership dues will be determined annually by Cycling BC Staff, recommended for approval by the Board and ratified by the Members at a General Meeting; the purpose of the December 18th EGM is to present the 2024 membership fee structure and to vote on the proposed 2024 fees based on the information that has been provided.

To ensure that the process is fair, transparent, and that members have ample opportunity to review the proposal in advance of the EGM, where members will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarifications, we have provided the proposed 2024 fee structure below along with additional supporting information.
