An online vote of members was held between May 31 and June 18 to determine the future of the BCAMRT. There were two possible options that members were asked to choose between. Please see here for a table outlining the two options and the differences between them.
A total of 892 votes or 39.5 percent of total membership were cast. There were 6 abstentions.
386 votes ( 43.6 percent) were cast for Option 1: BCAMRT continues as a provincial society, but with internal efficiencies.
500 votes (56.4 percent) were cast for Option 2: phased amalgamation with CAMRT and eventual dissolution of BCAMRT.
In setting the vote, the BCAMRT board determined that at least 15 percent of the membership (or 330 votes) must be cast; and that Option 2 must get at least 55 percent of the votes cast. Since both conditions were met, Option 2 has won the vote.
The BCAMRT board and executive director will now meet to determine next steps with CAMRT and will determine how to implement a smooth and seamless transition by December 31, 2017. We will keep you informed through monthly ebulletins plus a Radiaction issued in August.
