Annual Meeting 2016
Senior College Annual Meeting
Thursday, September 22, 2016, 11:45 am
Auditorium – Hutchinson Center
Proposed Changes to the Bylaws
Brought to you by popular demand, as several people requested that we send out ahead of time the proposed changes to the bylaws that will be voted on at the annual meeting.
Section 5 – Communications Committee
Delete the whole section on Communications Committee.
Rationale: The Board determined that the 3 positions mentioned (Website manager, registrar, and a person responsible for external communication) were 3 independent positions and, subsequently, that it made no sense for them to meet as a committee.
Section 12 – E-news Editor
Delete “(Internal Communication), and is a member of the Communications Committee.”
Rationale: The phrase “(Internal Communication)” is unnecessary as the responsibility of the E-News Editor is defined in the beginning of the sentence. Deletion of the rest of the sentence brings this section into agreement with the bylaws, there being no Communications Committee.
Section 13 – Website Manager
Delete “S/he is a member of the Communications Committee.”
Rationale: This brings the section into agreement with the rest of the bylaws, there being no Communications Committee.
Section 5 – Add the following:
A. The Finance Committee shall consist of the Board Treasurer, who will chair the committee, and at least three (3) other members, at least one of whom will not be a Board member.
B. The duties of the Finance Committee shall be to assist the Treasurer in attending to the financial affairs of Senior College.
Rationale: The Board determined that with the growing complexity of the finances of Senior College, it is necessary to have a committee to assist the Treasurer and report to the Board.
