fromtheboard Proposed bylaw change THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS PROPOSING A BYLAW


change regarding the election process for the Board of Direc- tors. This change complements and completes the process begun in 2013 where all elections are for director positions and the officers are elected by the board members.


Article V. Amendment of Bylaws


SECTION 1. BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS These Bylaws may be amended at any regular or special meeting of the Board of Directors by a vote of at least seven (7) of the nine (9) members of the Board, provided a motion to amend the Bylaws was made at a regular or special meeting of the Board not less than thirty (30) days prior to the meeting at which the vote is to be taken. The Secretary shall cause such a motion to be published in BMW Owners News not less than thirty (30) days prior to the meeting at which the vote is to be taken. Under the current Bylaws, elections are held two of every


three years, electing four (4) positions in the first year, five (5) positions in the second year, and no positions the third year. The bylaw change would allow an election every year with three (3) Director positions eligible per election. This annual election process presents an opportunity for members to run for the Board each year while ensuring continuity for the organization. The following section of the current By-Law shall be removed:


Section 1. General There shall be an election in two (2) of each three (3) years to elect the members of the Board of Directors and to vote on other such matters as may be placed on the ballot in accordance with these


Bylaws as follows: In the first of each three (3) years starting in 2013 four (4) Directors positions shall be filled by such election. In the sec- ond of each three (3) years five (5) Directors positions shall be filled by such election. In the third of each three (3) years there shall be no election.


The new Bylaw shall read:


There shall be an annual election to elect the members of the Board of Directors and to vote on other such matters as may be placed on the ballot in accordance with these Bylaws. Three (3) Director posi- tions shall be filled by such election. The transition to annual elections shall occur as follows: Beginning


with the 2017 election, two (2) Board positions shall be filled, and the remaining three (3) positions will be extended for one year. For the 2018 election, three (3) positions shall be filled. In the 2019 election, three (3) positions shall be filled, one (1) remaining position will be extended for one year. In the 2020 and subsequent elections thereaf- ter, three (3) positions shall be filled by each annual election. If any Board member serving an extended term chooses not to complete said extension, the currently serving President of the Board will appoint a replacement to fulfill the extended term. Once the transi- tion period has been completed (2020), the preceding verbiage regarding the transition shall be removed from the Bylaws.


The Board of Directors will hold a special meeting the first week of July, thirty (30) days following publication of the above-proposed amendment to the Bylaws, to vote on this matter. This change will affect elections in 2017 – 2020.
