SMTMD Proposed Bylaws Amendments 2010



The proposed change to the SMTMD by-laws increases the number of officers on the board. It also clarifies the structure of the board, and identifies what the officer’s positions are. This new wording will provide better guidance for future boards, and make it possible for officers to double as chairpersons if necessary. Membership and Hospitality positions are introduced as chairpersons in the hope that when volunteer interest is high there will be a subcommittee to support each of these potentially busy jobs.

Here is the "improved" version of the by-laws change:

Section 2. Number, Tenure, Qualifications
The Board of Directors of the Society shall consist of seven (7) persons. The number of officers shall be four (4), namely: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Additional board members shall be three (3), namely: the chair persons in charge of Membership and Hospitality, and a Member at Large. All Directors shall be elected by Society members for a period of one (1) year at the annual meeting. Directors must be at least 18 years of age and members in good standing.

Here is the existing version:
Section 2. Number, Tenure, Qualifications
The Board of Directors of the Society shall consist of seven (7) persons. The number of officers is three (3). All Directors shall be elected for a period of one (1) year and shall be elected by the Society members at the annual meeting. Directors must be members in good standing. All Directors must be at least 18 years of age.
