  • Proposed change to Section 3.03 of the bylaws (Bil Corry)
    • Text: "PROPOSED SECTION 3.03 Regular Meetings. The Board of Directors shall have regular meetings as needed. A link to the board meeting agenda’s and the historical minutes is here: Meetings shall be at such dates, times, and places as the Board shall determine in December of the preceding year and as amended by the Board. In no event will there be less than one meeting per quarter. These meetings will be open to public attendance, however, certain portions of the meeting may be closed to board members and their delegates when required for legal reasons, or to shield liability, or to handle personnel issues, or similar. Attendance in person or virtually by board members is required at no less than 75% of the total meetings each year and shall be highly encouraged to meet in person at least once annually at a date to be announced and agreed upon. Attendance is tabulated after every scheduled meeting for the purpose of determining if the 75% attendance requirement has been met, and the tabulation is based upon the entire calendar year. Cancelled meetings are considered attended for the purposes of the tabulation. Failure by a board member to meet the 75% attendance requirement after any tabulation will cause a mandatory vote of confidence by the remaining board members, whose votes will be publicly recorded. An overall vote of "no confidence" is recorded if half or more of the board members vote for it, which causes the board member in question to be instantly removed from their seat on the board. Vacancies on the board are handled as per Section 3.10."
    • current bylaws:
    • short discussion whether 75% or 66% or what would be good number?
