Proposed Bylaw Amendment – 3 year terms

This year’s ballot includes a proposed amendment to the Bylaws. For those of you at the 2017 Finals at Belle Grove, you may recall a discussion item suggesting that we amend the Bylaws to increase the Directors’ terms from two years to three. The majority of those at the meeting favored the change. From my experience, it should be a minimum three-year commitment to maintain the most effective Board. Two years is just too short for a new Board member to get totally acquainted with the Association’s business and, just as they hit their stride, their term is about the expire. The amendment will not affect term limits, which will remain at six consecutive years but an initial commitment of a minimum of three years will make for a better educated and more efficient Board. The Board of Directors recommends voting YES on this proposed change to 4.3 of the Bylaws.
