Important CIM Winnipeg Branch Announcement

December 27, 2013

Message to CIM Winnipeg Membership

It comes with sadness that I announce that Clayton McPherson has tendered his resignation as president of the CIM Winnipeg Branch.

Clayton brought his unique perspective to the board. His experience obtained from the successful start up and operation of his own new business (Kitpak Fulfillment) has been invaluable to the board.

He introduced new concepts to fulfil our members’ experiences and saw it through to grow the Careers In Motion series.

He always had the membership’s best interest at heart, always striving to provide true bang for their buck.

During Clayton’s time on the board, these same core values have led to Kitpak’s tremendous growth, and as a result, he is no longer able to continue his work with the CIM Winnipeg Branch Board of Directors.
Special Thanks to Clayton McPherson
The Winnipeg Branch of the Canadian Institute of Management thanks Clayton for his dedicated leadership and service to the board and the membership and we wish him well as his business continues to grow.


Thomas Ritter C.I.M., P.Mgr.
President, Winnipeg Branch

Notice: Special Members’ Meeting

December 7, 2013

of a Special Members’ Meeting

to be held on
Monday, January 6, 2014 at 5:30 pm
at the
Norwood Hotel, 112 Marion Street, Winnipeg MB

A Special Branch Meeting is being held to make changes to the Winnipeg Branch Constitution so fully audited financial statements can be presented at all future annual general meetings.

To save costs, past Winnipeg Boards submitted “duly balanced Annual Financial Statement” which did not fully meet the Branch Constitution requirement to “submit an Annual Financial Statement, duly audited”. At the 2013 Winnipeg Branch Annual General Meeting the Winnipeg Board of Directors committed to the membership that going forward the requirements of the constitution would be met and audited Financial Statements would be presented at future annual general meetings.

The Canadian Institute of Management’s fiscal year end is May 31st as dictated by our National Organization. To allow the time required to develop audited financial reports the board needs to change the date of AGM of “held in May of each year”. The Non-for-Profit Act requires financial reports to be presented to its membership within six months of the organization’s fiscal year end or in our case on or before November 30th of each year.

Changing the AGM date directly affects two article sub-sections in the branch’s constitution. Two Motions will be presented and voted on at the Special Meeting to allow future boards the time needed to present audited Financial State.

Summary of Motions:

Motion #: 2014-S01

Article VI Sec.7 – Change the requirement date of “held in May” to “held within five months of the end of the fiscal year”.

Motion #: 2014-S02

Article VIII Sec.7 – Change the date newly elected officers assume duties of “on June 1st or earlier” to “November 30th or earlier”.

Motions 2014-S01 and 2014-S02 can be accessed by clicking the links below:
