 Branch By-Laws

 

At our Fall General Meeting, a motion will be made for a minor change to our current branch by-law.  This change deals with the election of the officers.  The current article 5.1.1.reads,


Composition

The Branch Board shall comprise six to twelve directors. Of these directors, four shall serve as the following officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Up to six directors are elected by the members at the Branch Annual Meeting and comprise the Branch Executive. The Branch Executive may appoint up to six additional directors. The four officer positions are appointed by the Branch Board from the Branch Executive.

The motion will call for the deletion of the two words, “Up to” and the article will then read,


Composition

The Branch Board shall comprise six to twelve directors. Of these directors, four shall serve as the following officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Six directors are elected by the members at the Branch Annual Meeting and comprise the Branch Executive. The Branch Executive may appoint up to six additional directors. The four officer positions are appointed by the Branch Board from the Branch Executive.
 

The reason for this change is to avoid the [unlikely] situation where only one (“up to six”) officer would be elected who could then “stack” the board to his or her liking.
