Vote on the revised bylaws with the changes [below] at the September meeting.

 

The following articles of the proposed by-laws were discussed:

Article IX – Dissolution

Concern was expressed that as currently written, since rescue is a committee of the club, that the rescue funds would be donated to a charitable organization and not to an organization that would allow the current rescue group to continue operation.  Discussion was held that:  (1) a time frame (not less than 30 days) be included which would allow interested parties to file the appropriate paperwork to become a separate non-profit organization and thus be allowed to receive these funds, and (2) we include non-profit organization as an option for distribution of the funds.  In addition, it was agreed that a 2/3 majority of the members present at the final dissolution meeting of the club decide where any and all club money would be distributed after all debts, taxes, etc. of the club were paid.  The exact wording will be published in the Sam-O-Gram.

 

Article II – Membership

Section 3.  Election to Membership

Concern was expressed that as it appears 2 associate members would be allowed to sponsor another member.  It was agreed that we would change the wording to include 2 voting members.  The corrected version will be printed in the Sam-O-Gram.
