Start a Club

If you know of a group of Liberal seniors (65 and older) who might want to start a club, here’s what to do:

A club is formed when a group of at least 10 senior Liberals hold a founding meeting, elect an interim executive and adopt a constitution or set of bylaws. To be recognized by the SLC, a club must have at least 10 members; and,

  • hold an annual meeting for the purpose of electing an executive;
  • forward the club’s original constitution/bylaws on formation and any amendments that might be made from time to time, to the manager of the SLC;
  • forward to the SLC manager annually: minutes of the club’s annual general meeting, an annual affiliation fee, and a list of both executive and membership;
  • be recognized by its provincial or territorial senior’s Liberal commission.

To be recognized by a provincial/territorial senior’s Liberal commission;

  • a club must be duly constituted at a formal meeting and must have at least 10 members in good standing;
  • a letter asking for recognition must be sent to the Commission’s provincial or territorial Section Chair; the letter should enclose the following documents:
    1. the minutes of the founding meeting indicating the date, place and names with address and telephone numbers of the people attending the meeting
    2. a membership list with the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the members and the executive
    3. the constitution or bylaws of the club
    4. a letter signed by the club president stating that all members of the club are in good standing;
  • the Commission’s provincial or territorial Section Chair will review the documents and will forward a letter of recognition to the club
  • the club is responsible for forwarding a copy of this letter of recognition to the Commission’s Co-chairs and Coordinator.

More information can be obtained from the provincial or territorial Section Chair listed on the Executive page.
