Resolution # 1

The following change is proposed:

Be it resolved that the following clause be added to the Bylaws of the Society as of June 8th, 2013 under a new part, Part 13 – Indemnification, as Section 63, 64, 65 and 66:

“Part 13 – Indemnification

63. The Society shall, to the extent legally permissible, indemnify each person who may serve or who has served at any time as an officer, director, or employee of the Society (the “Indemnified Party”) against all expenses and liabilities, including, without limitation, counsel fees, judgments, fines, excise taxes, penalties and settlement payments, reasonably incurred by or imposed upon such person in connection with any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding in which he or she may become involved by reason of his or her service in such capacity if:

• the Indemnified Party acted honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the Society; and

• in the case of a criminal or administrative action or proceeding that is enforced by a monetary penalty, the Indemnified Party had reasonable grounds for believing that the Indemnified Party’s conduct was lawful.

64. The determination of any action or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or otherwise shall not, in and of itself, create a presumption that the Indemnified Party did not act honestly and in good faith with a view to the best interests of the Society or that the Indemnified Party did not exercise the care, diligence and skill of a reasonably prudent person or, with respect to any criminal or administrative action or proceeding, that the Indemnified Party did not have reasonable grounds to believe that the Indemnified Party’s conduct was lawful.

65. The indemnification provided hereunder shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of persons entitled to indemnification hereunder. The right of indemnification under this Part 13 shall be in addition to and not exclusive of all other rights to which any person may be entitled.

66. This Part 13 constitutes a contract between the Society and the Indemnified Party. No amendment or repeal of the provisions of this Section which adversely affects the right of an Indemnified Party under this Section shall apply to such person with respect to those acts or omissions which occurred at any time prior to such amendment or repeal.”

Meeting Closed: 2:15 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Jaine Buse
