Proposed Amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws of The Friends of Scott's Gulf
Article VI: Elections and Meetings
Section 6.1 -- Election of Directors:
A. The Directors for the next fiscal year commencing in January shall be elected by the Members by mail-in ballot in July of each year. At the April meeting of the Board of Directors, the President shall appoint an Election Committee of not less than three Members, or appoint the Board of Directors as the Election Committee. The Election Committee shall submit their nominations for officers to the Members at the annual membership meeting.
B. In addition to the nominations presented by the Board, nominations from the floor may be made at the annual meeting. Nominees from the floor must be present at the meeting to state their willingness to serve should they be elected.
C. Ballots for election of Directors shall be mailed following the annual meeting.
D. Ballots must be returned by July 31 for consideration. Unless otherwise required by law, at least ten percent (10%) of the Members must return ballots for the election of Directors. If fewer than ten percent (10%) of the membership return ballots, then the new Directors shall be appointed by the Board of Directors.
Section 6.2 -- Assumption of Office:
Newly elected officers will assume office at the first Board of Directors meeting of the new year, and will serve the next two fiscal years, or until their successors are qualified to serve, unless removed from office for reasons set forth in these Bylaws.
These Constitutional Amendments tentatively approved by the Board of Directors at its quarterly meeting held Feb. 12, 1998, and submitted for comment by the membership.
