Bylaws change regard elections
Posted 2008-10-20 22:20:00
Due to general meetings being held once per month, rather than twice, it now takes between one and two months for the nomination and election process for LUGOD's officers. President Bill Kendrick put forth a motion at tonight's meeting to change officer terms into year-long positions, with voting taking place once a year, in October. Bill Broadley seconded, and the vote passed with no objections (and one abstention). Our Bylaws have been adjusted, accordingly.
