Regional Restructuring Convocation Poll Results

June 20, 2017 2 Comments

Restructuring-Process-sqCANADA – During the recent regional convocations on LCC Restructuring the presenters conducted an informal “straw” poll to gauge the response to the recommendations.*

1.  An initial response to the 2017 LCC Act and Bylaws. This is not an official vote, since the Bylaws may be revised because of these Convocations. You may change your mind later.

  • I am favourably inclined towards the revised LCC Act and Bylaws.
  • I am unfavourably inclined towards the LCC revised Act and Bylaws.
  • I need more time and information to form an inclination.

*Convention voting delegates did not participate in these two straw polls.

  • For the ⅓+ who need more time and info, was there a general consensus on what kind of info was still needed? If so, can those points be addressed by the CCMS ASAP?

  • Dennis Kendel

    While 36-38% of Convocation participants feel they need more time or information 51-58% support the key features of the proposed restructuring plan while only 6-11% do not support it. In such a complex change process this represents remarkable support for the revised LCC Act & bylaws and 8 regions.
