GS 2013 art 104

GS 2013 Article 104 – Standing Committee for the Publication of the Book of Praise (SCBP) – Corporate Status

1.         Material:

Report from the SCBP, Section 5.0, 5.1 (8.2.4)

2.         Observation:

The SCBP has maintained its status as a corporation. All the necessary documents for this purpose have been kept up to date, including filing the Annual Income Tax forms with Revenue Canada. This is a legal requirement even though the committee does not operate under an annual budget and the Corporation does not generate an income or profit.

3.         Consideration:

The SCBP correctly requests Synod Carman 2013 to continue the mandate to maintain its corporate status for the purpose of protecting the interests of the Canadian Reformed Churches in all matters concerning the Book of Praise.

4.         Recommendation:

That Synod decide to mandate the SCBP to maintain its corporate status.
