In order to ensure that your club remains strong, Cascade’s Board of Directors is in the process of revising the club’s bylaws. The bylaws were written for a much smaller club in an age before the internet; procedures that worked then, like bringing the membership together in a room to conduct club business, no longer make sense.
The board is proposing bylaw revisions in three areas:
1) The process for director recall;
2) The terms of board-appointed interim directors; and
3) The quorum required for the board to conduct club business.
You can read the full text of the proposed changes here. Members will be asked to vote on these proposed changes during the October 2011 election; they will appear collectively on the ballot along with this year’s candidates for the board of directors. Ratifying the proposed changes will require a two-thirds majority vote.
