Understanding The MGABC

The Policy Manual here and in PDF below contains policies that guide the operation of the MGABC Provincial Council, and also some policies for how affiliated chapters may operate. MGABC Provincial Council is not a separate entity from the chapters, but rather a forum for the affiliated chapters to come together to set provincial standards for the education of members, exchange information and learn from one another. The Council also serves to manage province-wide initiatives such as the website, charitable donations and liability insurance that would not be practical for chapters to manage individually.

MGABC is the Chapters and the Chapters are MGABC.

The policies that follow flow from the MGABC Constitution and Bylaws approved by the members at the MGABC Annual General Meeting held on October 20, 2012.

It is important that members read the bylaws to have a full understanding of how the members, the chapters and the provincial council work together.

MGABC Provincial Council has ten members. Four officers are elected directly by the members at the AGM. Six directors known as Chapter Representatives are appointed or elected by the affiliated chapters.

Together these council members establish minimum educational and membership standards on behalf of and with the affiliated chapters, as well as initiatives that are more easily managed on a province-wide basis.

The vision and goals of MGABC – that of educating its members and the gardening public – are accomplished through the affiliated chapters and their members.

The affiliated chapters are in the best position to determine how members should be educated and who should become a member. The educational and membership standards contained in the bylaws and these policies are minimum standards. Chapters and their members may establish higher standards. Chapters may also establish further policies as long as they do not conflict with these provincial policies.
