Association By-laws have been revised and submitted to the membership for approval.
Notice to all members: the 2012 CCPCI Board has made revisions to the By-laws and we have posted them on the site for members to vote for approval or dissaproval. Please login and click on the vote tab and cast your ballot. Some of the following things have been changed.
1. The proposed substantive amendments to the bylaws reflect due consideration of the reality that securing 3 members from each section is proving to be extremely difficult. Without that full complement of Directors from each Section, the Board will run into quorum problems and may not be able to act. Lowering each Section's Directors to a single member is intended to solve that problem without compromising any Section's voice on the Board.
2. The proposed sections on pages 6-7 dealing with quorum are to facilitate the corporation being able to transact business when low Board attendance at meetings prevents action by the Board. These paragraphs parallel Corporations Code.
3. Removal of a Director "for cause" is within the realm of nonprofit and for profit corporations. Vacancies, in that situation, are appropriately filled by the Board instead of requiring the affected Section to conduct another election to elect a replacement. It is appropriate, however, to have the full membership elect any Director At Large.
4. Proposed Bylaws shall be sent to voting members at least 30 days before the ballot deadline and must be approved by ⅔ of the voting members.
