Amendment to the Club Constitution
At the August club meeting, touring director Steve Pequignot offered an amendment to the club constitution in regards to office election nominations. His amendment is to limit the number of nominations one club member can make for any particular office. The premise of his argument for the amendment is to protect the integrity of the nominating process. Currently, as the constitution reads, a club member could nominate an infinite number of club members for an office. This manipulation of a common sense understanding could lead to the entire membership nominated for one office, thus slowing down the process and making a mockery of our rules.
Steve’s amendment limits one club member to nominate another member per office. There are nine club officers, so a club member could nominate nine other members, one per office; however, not more than one per office. Any number of club members can be nominated to an office; however, multiple members must do the nominating.
The amendment language, highlighted in RED, can be viewed at this link.
The final vote for this amendment to the constitution will be held at the October club meeting, Thursday October 6, at 7:30pm at the downtown public library, meeting room B. Comments and discussion will proceed the final vote.
