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).
Board members will be voted on in November. To vote for board members, or any other issue at a council meeting, members are required to be “in good standing”. Per the Allegheny West Civic Council bylaws, a member in good standing is a person or organization who has paid dues for the year and belongs either as an individual or group. The slate will be proposed at the October general membership meeting at which time additional nominations may be made from the floor. 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 email@example.com.
