The proposed Bylaw changes to be read and voted on at the December Meeting:
Amend Article I, Section 3 – Eligibility for Holding Office to read:
To be eligible for nomination and election to an office in the club, the nominee must be a member in good standing for one calendar year. They must signify in advance a willingness to serve to the best of their ability at all times if elected by the membership. A member in good standing is one who is a permanent member, has been a club member for one (1) year since being voted in by the general membership, and whose dues are paid in full for the current membership year. Due to the extra responsibilities entrusted to the Treasurer in managing the club’s finances, applicants for the position will need to be interviewed by the executive board to insure proper ability to do the job and secure the clubs finances.
Amend Article V, Section 3 – Membership Fees and Dues to read:
Add the following as paragraph 3:
Serving on the Executive Board qualifies as service to the club equating to half of the annual dues. Serving as Secretary or Treasurer qualifies for a full dues waiver. Due to the increase in club membership and the extra time and responsibilities of the Secretary and Treasurer, they will be paid a stipend. This stipend is to be paid out in quarterly increments starting in March of each year. The stipend for the Secretary is $500 yearly at $125.00 per quarter. The stipend for the Treasurer is $999.00 yearly at $249.25 per quarter.
Club officers will be elected at the December meeting. If you are interested in becoming an officer, please contact the secretary, Michael Trimeloni, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Specifically, we will need someone to take the treasurer’s position. We want to encourage you to become involved in the club, even if for a year or two.
Over many years, members have expressed concern that the club was not available for use on some federal holidays. The former and current policy closes the club for use when it is rented by a member. Many club members have the federal holidays off and it is one of the few times they can use the club, pond, and ranges. Based on this feedback, the board proposed and the membership approved a new clubhouse rental policy. On the ten federal holidays, the new policy only allows the clubhouse to be rented in the evenings, starting one-half hour before sunset. This policy change is designed to allow members more access to the ranges on days they do not have to work. The membership present at the November meeting felt this change was the best compromise. Rental of the clubhouse is still allowed on all other days of the year and the grounds are closed for use during the rental period. Use of the ranges by the renter is still not allowed.
The recent winds have knocked down several trees in the woods at the club. Any club member wanting fire wood is welcome to these downed trees. You must cut and haul them yourself.
