Bylaws Amendments Information
This September, the Bylaw Committee will review all proposed changes to the GSMOL Bylaws that have been suggested by our members. So far we have 12 suggestions. The Committee will recommend Bylaws changes to the Board of Directors that are necessary and useful to keep GSMOL strong and functioning well.
All the Committee meetings are by telephone conference and open to all members. Send an email to Committee Chair Henry Cleveland if you want to get copies of the committee minutes, the proposed amendments and/or if you want to participate in the committee meetings. The Bylaws will be better for GSMOL with the more members taking part in this amendment process.
The Board of Directors will consider the proposed amendments at its December meeting. Only we members can change the Bylaws. The proposed amendments will be printed in the Californian which will come out in January, 2020. The ballot allowing all members to vote on the proposed amendments at the same time we vote on new officers will be in the same issue of the magazine. The ballots will be due in Spring of 2020.
Henry would welcome any question you have about the Bylaw amendments. Email him at email@example.com . or find his other contact information on the Board of Directors page of the Californian. You can also contact your local GSMOL leaders or Board officers.
