• The following message was emailed to all SRC Rotarians on March 18, putting it within the required 10-day notification requirement to schedule a vote on changes in club Bylaws:
The SRC Board’s recent decision to end, for now, the monthly breakfast meetings necessitates changes in the club Bylaws as described below. Per President Andy Leyhane, we will be voting on the proposed changes at our dinner meeting on Thursday, March 28.
Here are the specifics:
• Article 5: Meetings
Section 1: The principal regular meetings of this club shall be held at 6:15 p.m. each Thursday, holidays excepted, from September through June at a location so designated for that purpose by the Board. Breakfast meetings held on the third Thursday of the month at 7 a.m. at a location so designated by the Board also shall be defined as official meetings. During July and August, informal activities may be scheduled in place of formal meetings. (NEED TO ELIMINATE THE WORDS IN RED)
Section 3: Twelve (12) members constitute a quorum at the regular evening meetings of this club. Seven (7) members constitute a quorum at the third Thursday breakfast meetings. (NEED TO ELIMINATE THE WORDS IN RED)
• Article 13: Member Definitions / Method of Electing Members
Section 4: The applicant shall be introduced in person to the general membership by the sponsor at both a regularly scheduled dinner meeting and a regularly scheduled breakfast meeting before formal submission and acceptance of a membership application. (NEED TO ELIMINATE THE WORDS IN RED)
We will be proposing these changes at the meeting and, assuming we have a quorum, voting on them.
