Do you need to incorporate, maintain or transition a BC society but don't know where to begin? With all of the steps involved, it is easy to become disoriented when performing corporate record keeping under the BC Societies Act that came into force in November 2016. In this three-part series, experienced faculty will guide you through the preparation and filing of documents from corporate procedures under the Act. You will receive checklists, tips, prescribed forms, and precedents for incorporating, maintaining, and transitioning a BC society.

Join us to find out the information that you need to gather, issues you need to consider, and documents that you need to prepare.
