2022 Special Membership Vote-Bylaws Correction Made
Your Glen Lake Association Board of Directors identified the need to amend the Association Bylaws adopted at the 2021 Annual Member meeting. Article V, Section 1 of those Bylaws limited the term of an elected Director to six consecutive years. Officers of the Association are elected by the Board of Directors from their own number at the organizational Board meeting, and if any officer ceases to be a Director they shall cease to hold office. This provision effectively limited the term of an officer elected in the last year of their Board term to one year, rather than the normal two-year term of an officer. In the interest of consistency and continuity of leadership, the Board of Directors recommended adoption of the following amendments (shown in bold) to the second paragraph of Article V,
Section 1-Board of Directors:
“No member shall be eligible to be elected as a director for a regular three-year term or to fill a vacancy for a shorter unexpired term if such member has served as a director for the six consecutive years immediately preceding such meeting, except the Board of Directors may extend the term of a director for one year as necessary to permit that director to act as an officer. In addition, any such member shall again be eligible for election three years after the end his or her last term as director.” ,
and to the second paragraph of Article VII-Committees:
The Executive Committee (EC) consists of the officers and, subject to his or her approval, the immediate past President of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors may extend the Immediate Past President’s term on the Board of Directors as necessary to permit that person to serve in that capacity on the Executive Committee until such time as that person is no longer the immediate past president.
The Association Bylaws may be amended by the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members participating and entitled to vote. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Hayes at email@example.com.
Thank you for unnanimously supporting the needed ammendments and thank you for your commitment to the preservation and protection of the Glen Lake Watershed.
Edward Lanphier, GLA President
