Proposed by-law changes
The following amendment proposals to the Chippewa Falls Rotary Club by-laws have been reviewed by the Chippewa Falls Rotary Club Board of Directors and your feedback/direction as club members regarding these proposed modifications is important as the board prepares to vote. I ask that you submit and change request to Chris Klay-President at email@example.com.
Article Modifications for Consideration:
Article 6.3 – Members who have entered retirement and are no longer employed full-time may request through written correspondence to the Executive Secretary, a waiver of the quarterly billing for meals and agree to pay for their meals when they attend meetings beyond the complimentary meal limit of three (3) meals per quarter. The waiver will become effective the quarter immediately following the date of the request. The member will continue to be required to pay quarterly dues, required to participate in the Rose Day fundraiser, encouraged to contribute to Rotary International E.R.E.Y., and remain active and participate in fundraising events of the club.
Article 7.0- The business of this club shall be transacted by viva voce (by vocal assent) vote. The board may determine that a specific resolution be considered by ballot rather than by viva voce vote. “In instances where board meeting attendance does not meet quorum status (two-thirds of membership); motions may be presented electronically via email to the Board of Directors, soliciting their vote regarding presented motions. In situations of electronic voting the President and/or Executive Secretary will ensure the minutes properly reflect the outcome of the motion.”
