There is a motion to amend our Bylaws, and this must go to general membership and members will vote on this at our meeting.
Article V covers Officers.
Sections 6 through 9 cover the duties of the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.
It was amended last year (2013) to include: "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries."
The proposal is to eliminate this clause and allow anyone who is elected by the membership to serve in any Board position.
A bit of background is in order. When Jack and Tavish worked with our current attorney to file for a 501 C 3. I believe it was the attorney's suggestion to include the original clause that forbade anyone who made most of their living from disc golf to be elected to the Board.
Last year's (2013) Board softened this by allowing such people to at least serve on the Board, but only as At-large Members.
The motion is to amend the bylaws to eliminate
the clause that reads "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries." from sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 in Article V.
