Proposed Amendment to Bylaws

We are hereby providing notice of a proposed motion to amend the bylaws, to be voted on at our next regular meeting, Tuesday, Oct. 5. To be adopted, the motion to amend must pass by a vote of two-thirds of members present.

Motion to amend the following sections of the Route 20 Chess Club bylaws:

Article V. Meetings
Section 2. (Amended) Annual Meetings. The regular meeting on the first Tuesday in August April shall be known as the annual meeting and shall be for the purpose of electing officers, along with any other business that may arise.

Article IV. Officers
Section 2. (Amended) Nomination Procedure, Time of Elections. At the first regular meeting held in July March, members of the society may nominate candidates for the offices to be filled at the first regular meeting held in August April. If an officer resigns his or her position before his or her term expires, replacement candidates shall be nominated at the next regular meeting, and a special election to fill the office shall be held at the first regular meeting of the following month. At the meeting during which an election is held, additional nominations from the floor shall be permitted before the election is conducted.

Section 3. (Amended) Ballot Election, Term of Office. The officers shall be elected by ballot to serve for one year or until the next annual meeting, whichever comes first, and their term of office shall begin at the close of the meeting at which they are elected. If there are three or more candidates for a single office, the election to that office shall be decided by preferential ballot.

Section 4. (Amended) Limitations. No member shall hold more than one office at a time, and no member shall be eligible to serve more than two consecutive full (12-month) terms in the same office. Two full terms separated by a shorter term shall be considered consecutive, provided the member remains in office through the shorter term.
