Dear SWCC members:
As you know, we recently held a membership vote to reconfirm changing the name of our organization to the Science Writers and Communicators of Canada and to ratify amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws.
Voting was open from August 1 to August 27. Sixty-six votes were cast (286 members were eligible to vote).
The results were:
Question 1: Do you support the proposed name, Science Writers and Communicators of Canada?
In favour: 64
Question 2: Do you support the proposed amendment to our Constitution and ByLaws?
In favour: 66
Therefore, I declare the motions carried.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the vote and the special general meeting on August 27. Special thanks to Tim Lougheed for providing background on the reason for revising the constitution and bylaws, and to Nikki Berreth for arranging the vote and the meeting.
Science Writers and Communicators of Canada
