OSRP Special Session of the Membership April 12

Tue, March 19, 2024 2:25 PM | OSRP (Administrator)

At our Annual General Meeting in November, resolutions to change our constitution and by-laws were presented to the membership for approval. These were included with the materials for that meeting in accordance with our by-laws.

Unfortunately, we did not get to voting on most of the proposed changes at the Annual General Meeting. In recognizing that our members had a number of questions about the changes, we scheduled an "Ask me Anything" open house event in December to allow for more dialogue on this. Thank you to those who were able to attend and for your thoughtful questions.

We are now looking to schedule a Special Session of the Membership to proceed with voting on these changes.

Please take some time to review the below document, with particular attention to the "rationale" with which these proposed amendments were decided. Where a pre-existing by-law exists, we have provided a side-by-side comparison for you.

Understanding that you may have questions with respect to each of these proposed amendments, we have created a portal for you to submit these in advance of the meeting. This is in hopes that we can provide responses prior to the meeting, allowing us to get through the voting process in the allotted two hours for the meeting. The link below will take you to a survey where can enter questions as they pertain to each by-law. We will be responding to these a week prior to the Special Session of the Membership.

Please note we will not be responding directly to questions posted on the listserv about these by-laws.

This meeting will be recorded.

As a member in good standing of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists, you have the privilege of voting and having your voice heard. One way to do this is to attend our Special Session of the Membership and use your vote there. However, if you are unable to attend in person, you may still weigh in by assigning someone else to vote for you by proxy.

We need your votes!

Quorum for our Special Session of the Membership is 130 members, so it is important that you register to attend the meeting or assign a proxy to vote on your behalf.

How do I assign a proxy?

Assigning a proxy is easy. First, make sure the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists member you are assigning as your proxy has registered to attend the Special Session of the Membership and let them know you wish to assign your proxy vote to them. Then, enter their name on the proxy application form. We have also provided the option to choose from your Executive committee as they are guaranteed to attend.
