GNS Society

Glenlyon Norfolk School is operated by a society, in accordance with the Society's Act of British Columbia. Membership is restricted to alumni over the age of nineteen (19) years, to parents of students and alumni, and to Honorary members as outlined in the Society bylaws. Any person eligible for membership in the Society may become a member of the Society upon payment to the Society of the annual dues. If you are interested in becoming a Society member, please download, complete and return the Society Membership Form.

We encourage everyone to become involved in the governance of our school. Please consider volunteering to sit on a Board Committee. It is through the efforts of many dedicated volunteers that we have such a great school. Please contact the Board Chair and offer your assistance.

Pursuant to Section 5.2(1) of the GNSS Constitution and Bylaws, nominations for the Board of Governors may be made by any member provided that notice in writing of the nomination, together with the nominee’s acceptance in writing is submitted to the Chair of the Nominating Committee not less than twenty-one (21) days prior to the date of a meeting of the Society at which the elections are to be held.
