The South Hill Community Association held a special meeting to review and update its bylaws on Sunday.

Crystal Froese is the Chair of the SHCA. According to Froese, the meeting took place because "The bylaws that we'd actually been working under were back from 1998. They're twenty years old, and lots has changed in our community over the past twenty years."

Froese also said, "The Association has spent the last few months reviewing each article and looking [at] how they actually adhere to them. The bylaws were amended to bring them up to date with the relevancy of the Association."

Registrations, the roles and responsibilities of the chair and vice chair, and modernizing the language were part of the amendment process.

Part of modernizing the language meant making the bylaws "gender neutral," removing the words 'she' and 'he'.

Froese said the amendments were accepted at Sunday's meeting and are now in effect. "That's why a special meeting was called - to review the bylaws."

With regard to how the changes will affect South Hill residents, Froese said, "I think it will be a much clearer version, and easier for people who want to become involved in the Association. It will be much clearer about roles and responsibilities. It just brings our governance up to date, and more relevant to our times as opposed to the ones we were working from."
