BULLETIN BOARD NOTICES:
Coming Very Soon:
NOTICE TO CHANGE THE BYLAWS
Article II Paragraph 3 of
our bylaws recognizes the ‘grandfathered’ Widow Membership, but
nowhere do our bylaws define what this unique membership is or how
one becomes included in this membership. Therefore our Board of
Governors, in an attempt to resolve this situation, approved that
the following sentence be added to Article II Paragraph 3 or our
bylaws: "SPOUSES/PARTNERS OF A DECEASED MEMBER OF A DUAL LIFETIME
MEMBERSHIP IN GOOD STANDING SHALL BE ADDED TO THE ‘GRANDFATHERED’
WIDOW MEMBERSHIP AND BE PERMITTED TO CONTINUE THEIR MEMBERSHIP AT A
COST OF ONE-HALF (1/2) OF THE USUAL DUES."
Our Annual Membership
Meeting on October 10, 2014 will be deemed a Special Membership
Meeting in that this proposed change to our bylaws will be submitted
to the general membership for ratification.
