Chapter Bylaws Vote on Tuesday, October 21 at Monthly Lunch

Important revisions!

Our Chapter byalws have undergone a thorough review by a committee desginated by the Board of Directors fo the Chapter. We are planning to vote on accepting the changes at our monthly luncheaon on OCtober 21.  If you have not registered for our luncheon event, please do so via this link from our website. 

The review committee was comprised of: 

  • John Wroten, '65
  • Corey Bickmore, '78
  • John Samuels, '80 
Together, this group met multiple times to determine how to ensure our chapter bylaws were the most appropriate way of governing our evolving (and growing) chapter, and were consistent with the National Chapter of the USNA Alumni Association's manner of operations.
Key changes being recommended by our committee include:
  • Changes to how a Trustee to the National Board is determined
  • Electronic voting for future elections
  • Invitation of regular members to an annual Board meeting

Because we must vote in accordance with the existing bylaws - which mandate voting by members present at a meeting - we are not able to vote electronically for these byalws, If adopted, however, electronic voting will become possible for future elections. 
The current byalaws can be found here
The bylaws for which we will vote are posted here for a clean copy and here for a marked up (redlined) copy. (Updated 10/15/2014)
Previous draft of the suggested bylaws revision can be found at this link (as of 9/27/2014)
Any changes to the revised bylaws being presented for vote will be posted on this article on our website.
