Proposed Bylaw Changes
There has been a request for revision of bylaw: Term of Office
Each officer except the Treasurer, shall hold office for one year or until his successor has been elected and qualified. The term of office shall coincide with the calendar year of the organization, from January 1 to December 31. The term of office shall begin January 1 “yyyy”.
Each officer, except the President-Elect and Immediate Past President, shall hold office for two years or until his successor has been elected and qualified. The term of office shall coincide with the calendar year of the organization from January 1 to December 31. The term of office for the increased term of two (2) years shall begin January 1, 2021.
To increase the term of office to the Executive Board for an additional one year. This will provide continuity and streamline the election process. If this is passed, the relevant Section V. Term of Office will be changed to reflect the term of office to two (2) years.
The justification for these changes will be officially presented to the membership as outlined in Article X of the bylaws, Amendment of Bylaws:
- These bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the voting members present and voting at any business meeting of CRANE, provided that the amendment has been proposed by the Executive Board, Standing Committee, or by an active member in good standing. All proposed amendments will be submitted to the Bylaws Committee for review. The Bylaws Committee will be responsible that a copy of the proposed amendment has been submitted in writing to every member one month prior to the business meeting at which it will be voted upon.
Please watch for correspondence from the CRANE Executive Board and Bylaws Committee with information regarding proposed changes.
