NPO change in control

Anyone know how to figure out who “controls” a non-profit org?

I have a NPO client (membership org, not a registered charity) that has about 40 members. It is a DMO (destination marketing organization). The only employee quit to pursue more profitable employment elsewhere, so most of the members have decided to end their membership. Some of these members were government bodies (a town, two villages, a rural municipality, and a national park) that provided the majority of the DMO’s funding. Most of the elected decision makers are leaving or quitting. The few members that are left have found a few other businesses to join them and are going to change the name of the DMO, and continue in a limited capacity.

Does this change the “control” of the NPO, and thus cause a deemed year-end?
