Proposed Amendment to the AWCC Constitution and Bylaws

Below please find the proposed amendment to the AWCC Constitution and Bylaws from the July 12, 2016 AWCC meeting.

First paragraph of Duties of Officers should be changed to read (changes highlighted in bold):

“The President shall preside at all meetings of the Council and Executive Committee, and shall be ex-officio member of all committees except the Nominating Committee. He The President may appoint special committees, and shall perform all other duties usually pertaining to the office. The President along with the Treasurer shall prepare an annual budget for presentation at the June meeting for the fiscal year beginning in July. The budget will be voted on at the July membership meeting.

Implementation: According to Article XII Bylaws, the amendment may be adopted upon presentation in writing of the proposed change at one regular meeting, and the publication in the Allegheny West Gazette, and a ⅔ vote concurring at the next regular meeting (November 8, 2016 at 7:30 pm).

If you intend to vote please make sure you’re in good standing and have paid your dues. If you’re unsure feel free to send an e-mail to membership@alleghenywest.org.
