Congregational meeting to vote on proposed changes to the Bylaws on Sunday, 10/30/16, 12 Noon to 2:00 PM.

Bylaws Revisions

The Bylaws Work-group –Cynthia Garrett, Elisa Sanchez, Joel Courtney, and Rev. Sue– completed their work in August.

The Board of Trustees met in an early September retreat to review and discuss the recommended changes.

The proposed Bylaws changes were approved by the Board at the September 2016 meeting.

As the result of the October 23 discussion of the Proposed Bylaws Revisions, the Board will be presenting several amendments to the document –Side-By-Side Comparison of Current Bylaws and Proposed Bylaws Changes– you received in late September.

Section XII of our current Bylaws requires all amendments be advertised verbatim at the time the meeting is announced, and do not allow for amendments at the Membership Business Meeting.

Our current Bylaws also require a 7-day notice of Membership Business Meetings. To comply with these requirements, the Board of Trustees voted to reschedule the meeting to vote on all the proposed changes.

Lunch will be available for a donation, and childcare will be available.
If there are other amendments, please submit them to Sally Atkinson and to the office no later than 11:00 pm, Thursday, November 3so they can be included in the meeting announcement. These amendments must be in their final, written form as they will be voted on verbatim. Review current and proposed bylaws side-by-side.
