Proposed Bylaw Changes

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 $250 per quarter.
