Motion to change by-laws made/seconded/approved at the November 1 Club Meeting for a final vote at the December, 2018 Christmas Dinner/meeting.
History: It has always been a problem voting on club business due to the “33-1/2% quorum by-law” in our By-laws. For example, we could not elect officers for the 2018-19 fiscal year at the October meeting due to not having a 33-1/3% quorum of the membership total. Other amateur radio clubs in the area have a 15% “qourum rule.”
At the November 1 club meeting, a motion was made by John MacDonald-K4BR that the BARC “33-1/3% quorum rule” be changed to a “15% quorum rule.” The motion was seconded by a full club member for 2018-19, Diane Magin-KN4ADD, and passed unanimously by all club members of record for the 2019-19 fiscal year.
As announced on the club’s website at https://burkearc.com . . .
There will be a final vote on December 13 to possibly change the second sentence of Article V. of the by-laws from
“At meetings, a minimum of at least one-third (33-1/3%) of all members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.”
“At meetings, a minimum of at least 15% of all members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.”
