Proposed Changes to Club Bylaws

Here is a summary of the proposed changes to the club bylaws. Thy will be discussed at the the November 2019 General membership Meeting:

LVKCC members,


Last year the club agreed that the bylaws needed to be updated. President Linda A. Martin created a Bylaws Committee headed by Larry Palmer to make recommendations. As a result of that initiative the calendar year was officially changed to start on January 1 instead of November 1. Earlier this fall the committee was reconvened and I was named chair to continue the review of the bylaws.


The committee is now making the recommendations noted in this linked copy of the bylaws. These changes will be open for discussion at the November 7 meeting, and put to a vote at the December 6 meeting.


A summary of the recommended changes:


1: Extend memberships of people who join the club in November or December through the following year so they aren’t asked to pay dues a second time one or two months after joining.


2: Limit Executive Committee membership to officers who have been voted in by the general membership. As the bylaws are written, all committee heads have a vote on the Executive Committee, and the president can appoint as many people to head committees as he or she pleases. The Bylaws committee sees this language as allowing an unelected group to take over club operations. The committee also feels that executive decisions should be made by officers elected by the membership.


3: List all committees on meeting agendas and on the website. Committees will be asked to report on their activities at all meetings. Also, the president is authorized to disband inactive committees.


Please attend the November meeting to take part in the discussion of these proposals. We want to hear from everyone. And again, the final vote will not come before the December meeting at our holiday party.
