Current Board,

 

The bylaws were voted into effect by the current Board of Directors.  The
ByLaws State:  

 

SECTION 2.02 Election and Term of Office. Each Board member will serve for a
term of 2 years.

The role of the Board Members shall be elected by the Board of Directors at
the first meeting following

the election of the Board of Directors. If the election of officers shall
not be held at such meeting, such

election shall be held as soon thereafter as conveniently may be. Each
officer shall hold that role until

the next election has been completed.

 

This means that the newly elected Board of Directors would be assigned at
the September 5th Board Meeting.  However, the new Bylaws also included the
Roles that would be assigned, but there is no internal information that
would explain the level of responsibility for these roles within the Board
of Directors.

 

Additionally, the Term of the Board of Directors, as stated in the ByLaws,
is implied as beginning immediately.

 

So, a vote must be taken by the Board of Directors to either follow the
ByLaws as written and approved, or to amend the ByLaws to more clearly state
a transition and effective date for the newly elected Board Members.

 

Please vote YES or NO on the following Amendment to the current ByLaws:

 

The term of the Board of Directors will begin January 1 of the next calendar
year and continue for 24 months.
