Hi all,

We've received feedback about our proposed changes to the Code of Conduct and our Constitution. Our members value the Code of Conduct as a symbolic reminder of what our club atmosphere and culture should be. Given how valuable it is, even without enforcement abilities, we have proposed a different set of changes to the Code of Conduct, where any suspect sections relating to confidentiality and enforcement will be removed.

Notably, we have removed the sections on "Experiencing Unacceptable Behaviour", "Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour", "Addressing Grievances", and "Confidentiality". The proposed Code of Conduct can be found in full at https://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~exec/proposed-amendment/about/code-of-conduct. The patch of the proposed changes can be found at https://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~exec/proposed-amendment.patch. Both versions of the Code of Conduct are available for viewing in the office.

Since we have to maintain 7 days notice for any changes, the General Meeting will not start until 8:30 PM on the day of the meeting. The Code Party will instead start at 6:30 PM.
