It’s an Election Year!

Yes, November we vote for a new President–but we also vote to install our next TCC Board of Directors!

How boring (you might say); however, according to our ByLaws there are some very specific rules laid out for member voting requirements! For your reading pleasure these requirements are listed at the bottom of this post.

At this time, a member has submitted an amendment to the ByLaws. This Amendment will be voted on during the next scheduled General Meeting, held at TCC on February 11, 2016 at 7pm. All members are invited to attend and vote on this proposed amendment.

Proposed Amendment
Members must be signed in prior to 7:15 and stay for duration of meeting in order to be counted for attendance in an election year.

Section 7. Eligibility to Vote.
A. A member must be in good standing for all qualifying events, meetings, and volunteer time with dues current in order to vote in the election at the general meeting.
B. A member must be present at the time of the election in order to cast their vote. Proxy or absentee voting is not allowed.
C. A member must have attended at least two full, official, publicly noticed business meetings of the TCC between January 1 of the year in which the election is held and the October general meeting. Attendance is determined by sign-in and verification of the Board of Directors, OR A member must have logged at least 5 active hours on the TCC grounds (not including Topanga Days) and attended a minimum of one full general meeting or one committee meeting (including Topanga
Days Committee or Standing Committees or Program Meetings) in order to qualify to vote in the TCC election. A member may arrange with the Committee Chair or Recording Secretary an early departure or late arrival ahead of time (prior to the
start time of the meeting in question) in writing or via email for their eligibility to count.

    Why does active hours, “Topanga Days” not count toward voting? What do you mean by Logging other hours? I have helped with the sages but it’s not logged anywhere?

    I see there is “a proposed amendment”. What is the amendment? Isn’t procedure to present the amendment at one meeting and then vote on it at the next? Was the amendment presented at the last meeting? Must have missed it! Sorry. Could you please post the amendment here so we know what we’ll be voting on? Thanks. 🙂
