Inaccurate information is being published on other websites and being spread among members regarding the changes to the club bylaws.
First, it is being stated that the new bylaws will change the quorum needed to revise the bylaws revision to 10%. This is incorrect. Under the current bylaws, the quorum for elections, dues modification, bylaws, and other indicated issues is 5%; this does not change under the new bylaws. The new bylaws reduce the quorum for Special and General meetings from 5% to 2%, unless otherwise specified, but never above 5%, making it easier to do general business.
In addition, under the current bylaws, 20% of the club members must sign a petition to call a Special Meeting. This is reduced to 10% under the new bylaws, making it easier for members to call a Special Meeting.
Finally, the new bylaws include a member-requested clause that requires a petition signed by 10% of the membership for the membership to amend the bylaws. This proposal is intended to prevent a single member from proposing a change and prompting an expensive mailing process, unless there was some support for the change.
Copies of the new and old bylaws are available on this website to registered members -- you must be logged-in:
