June 13th, 2023 — News Release

On June 11th, 2023 the Canadian Pacific Historical Association (CPHA) officially became a registered Society in the Province of British Columbia.

These changes mean the CPHA has increased accountability to its members through annual elections of the Executive, stronger requirements for financial reporting, and the society can assume assets such as the CPHA Documents Library. The organization also now stands as a separate entity from its Executive members. "This is a great step in our evolution as we continue to grow as an organization and offer more to our membership" states Dave Love, CPHA Chair. "This effort was led by our Treasurer, Larry Sebelley, thanks to Larry for all his work getting us here."

The first Annual General Meeting of the membership will be planned for sometime in the next 12-18 months.
