Monthly Archives: March 2014

Success!

At tonight’s business meeting the membership and new officers revised the bylaws in a few key ways:

  1. Monthly meetings are now going to be social events, either just a get-together (possibly with a discussion topic planned) or with a speaker or event.
  2. Business of our local affiliate will be conducted by officers between annual member business meetings where new officers will be elected and bylaws can be amended.
  3. Members (at least 6) can call for an off-schedule meeting to recall an officer, revise the bylaws, or question a decision of the officers.
  4. Mission Statement added to bylaws.

We hope that this new direction will allow for more participation from our membership, more flexibility in meeting their demands, and more growth in our support network.

March Meeting: Wednesday the 5th

The meeting will be held at the Classic Cup Cafe (in the Parkland Center) 4389 Jackson Road, Ann Arbor MI from 7 pm to 9 pm.

Please reserve the time on your calendar so that you can attend this important meeting where we will update our By-laws, discuss the direction of the county affiliate, and how to grow our membership and influence.

As usual, the first 30 minutes are typically a social meet-and-greet time. Please join us to help meet our quorum for electing officers and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

See you there!
