Editing and refining policy, amendment, and directive ideas
G21-B009 Establish a Waiting Period for Membership Reinstatement
This motion establishes a 30-day waiting period before a member who has resigned their membership is eligible for membership in the Party.
Append to Bylaw 1.3 Resignation and Removal of Member:
A person who resigns their Party membership is not eligible for membership in the Party until the 31st day following the resignation date.
To protect the integrity of a Green Party of Canada membership and to reinforce the importance of the Members’ Code of Conduct.
This motion helps the Party avoid the administrative work of people resigning their membership when upset and then changing their mind once they calm down. It makes cancelling a GPC membership a significant action and will help the Party avoid frivolous resignations and subsequent reinstatements.
