Change Article VII Section 6, adding the text in bold, to
- Standing committee Chairman shall select from between two and ten members for their committees within 45 days following their election. No member of Council may chair more than one standing committee at a time. No officer may chair any standing committee except for the Corresponding Secretary who is ex-officio chair of the Communications Committee. All standing committees except for the Executive Committee are open to everyone to participate in discussion and all Civic Council members in good standing present are eligible to vote on any motion from the committee.
This amendment was presented in writing at the January 2020 membership meeting and will be published in the Allegheny West Gazette and voted on at the February meeting. If approved by two thirds of the members present will take effect immediately.
Corresponding Secretary is still an officer of the Council and is directed to be chair of the Communications Committee.
Historically, all committees except for the Executive Committee have been open to everyone.
