Proposed Bylaws Addition

An organization’s bylaws generally concern its operation, setting out the form and manner in which the organization will be run. Bylaws cannot be amended unilaterally by an organization’s Board of Directors; the Membership must have the opportunity to review, question, approve, or oppose their modification. When the majority of the Membership is in agreement with the changes, the new bylaws will be adopted officially.

Currently, TBI Bylaws Article IV, (A) Board Responsibilities states the following:

For continuity, it is preferred that the President-Elect come from the existing Board and be endorsed by the Board before being placed on the ballot.

The TBI Board proposes the following be added:

If no one from the existing Board is available to run, the President-Elect may be a Member in good standing who has been active within the Membership for the previous two years.

If you have a question regarding wording or intent, CLICK HERE to email Heather Rush; she has been instrumental in this revision.

Vote for your choice using the poll in the next column by clicking on either the YES or NO bar. You may only vote once in this poll.

The deadline for questions and to respond to the survey is August 27.

Adoption of the new bylaws will be announced at the September 1 gathering in the social room at Parkshore Condominiums. (Details of this get-together will be announced shortly.)

Thanks for taking the time to do this. It’s important to the integrity of TBI!!
