 About the Association
 
The Alpine Village Property Owners Association (AVPOA) is a Not for Profit Association that is committed to providing specific duties and services to its membership. Doing this with the spirit of cooperation with other associations and organizations with whom it conducts its business.
 
The association is comprised of volunteer Directors who are nominated to the executive each year at the spring Annual General Meeting (AGM). This is achieved with the collaboration of the residents, or voting Members of the association. This process has been repeating since 1978, and the chosen volunteers who accept the leadership positions then continue to conduct the business of the association in good faith, without prejudice, and due diligence for the Membership.
 
The fiscal year is July 1st to June 30th of each year.
 
The AVPOA is governed by its Letters Patent and By-Laws from 1978 to current as defined by the new Not for Profit Corporations Act, 2010

IMPORTANT MEMO
 
CANADA'S NEW ANTI SPAM LAW (CASL)
 
       Starting July 1, 2014 Canada's Anti-Spam Law will regulate all Commercial Electronic Messages sent or received by computer in Canada. This will include electronic newletters from other business affiliations and from the Alpine Village Property Owners Association.
 
Background: Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) was passed into law in December 2010 and comes in force on July 1, 2014. 

     
 There is a 3- year transition period, to July 1, 2017, for certain categories of "implied consent" as described in (a) to (c) below. CASL will regulate all "Commercial Electronic Messages" (CEMs) sent or received by computer in Canada, as well as a broad range of electronic/online activities, including digitally collecting email addresses without consent (address harvesting).
 
Notes;  * express consent does not expire; if someone subscribed to your email list before July 1, 2014, their consent stands until they indicate otherwise. Note: express consent cannot be obtained using a "pre-checked box" in an email; CASL is an "opt-in" regime.
* examples of implied consent that may apply to member lake association include:
 
a) recipient has an "existing business relationship" with a no-profit organization if the recipient was a member, purchased a prdict, good or service from the organization in the preceding two years; or, in the past six months, the organization recieved from the recipient an inquiry about a product, good or service.
 
b) recipient has a "non business relationship" with a non-profit organization if the recipient is not currently a member but was in the preceding two years, or volunteered for or donated to, the organization in the past two years.
 
c) recipient gave business card to sender, or recipient's electtronic address is "conspicuously published" (eg. online) and the recipient has not said " don't send me emails" and the CEM is relevant to the recipient's official role or duties.
 
Therefore; Where there is implied consent in an existing business or non-business relationship that has already included the communication of CEMs, "Businesses and people may take advantage of this transitional period (to July 1, 2017) to seek express consent for the continued sending of CEMs.
