As part of the 2018 FRNNG Annual Meeting on April 26th we will be proposing to update our bylaws to better reflect our current organization and goals. The language has also been edited to be more clear. Please click here to download a copy of the proposed bylaws. To view our current bylaws please click here.
After the board voted to propose these changes two issues were raised that will need to be voted on by the public on April 26th.
First under section 7.2 for Neighborhood Representative eligibility, a proposal was made to allow representatives that are not current residents but are qualified business owners or represent an organization in the neighborhood, such as a church or nonprofit leader. The text would be modified to read:
- Neighborhood representatives must live in the area they are elected to represent; or,
- A person who is a voting Member because they represent a qualified business or organization under 2.1 (b) may be a neighborhood representative.
The second is a proposal to raise the current number of board members as described in section 3.2 from 20, to 21 to allow for more co-chair positions. Co-chair positions allow for more representation and makes the task of charing a committee lighter by spreading the responsibilities.
Comments can be made in person on April 26th during our annual meeting, or by contacting the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
