Message from the Secretary;
Look forward to seeing everyone at packet night and out on the water soon.
Since joining the board last December, I have been busy, with the help of a committee, reviewing and updating our bylaws and insurance.
The proposed new bylaws are available on our website. There was a lot of reformatting and renumbering done, however, I wanted to give you a brief summary of the significant changes that are proposed.
The first change was adding a section prohibiting harassment and discrimination in our club and at our events. In addition, in the case of an incident, giving the Board of Directors the authority to discipline a member.
This change came about during discussions with our insurance carrier. In reviewing and updating our insurance, we were informed by our carrier, that these policies were mandatory for us to obtain coverage, and therefore, have been added to these proposed bylaws.
We have also changed the timing on the election process to make it more straightforward.
The nominating committee will propose a list of candidates by Sept. 15th to the Board, and any member wishing to run for office, can file a petition signed by ten members (same as current procedure), with the Secretary on or before September 30th.
If you would like to talk about any of the changes or have questions, I would be glad to talk with you. Please contact me at email@example.com. I will also be available before packet night if that is better for you.
Thanks you and look forward to a great sailing season.
