From the April 6, 2019 meeting, the following is the proposed amendment to the By-Laws. The text which is underlined and in Italics is the proposed text. Section 2 is revised to contain a sentence from Section 3 as it fits better in Section 2. Section 3 is a complete re-write to authorize spending for routine, necessary or emergency situations; and to define the financial limits of the Executive Council and Contest Directors.

This proposal will be discussed at the April 27th meeting and be voted on during the June meeting.

ARTICLE VII. EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

 

Section 1. Membership (No change)

The Executive Council shall consist of the elected officers, Member-at-Large, and Ex-Officio member.

 

Section 2. Government (Amendment underlined and in italics)

The management of the affairs and business of the LARKS shall be vested in the Executive Council. The Executive Council will ensure at least 2 members of the Council have access to any and all accounts which are connected to the operation of LARKS. The Executive Council shall have the authority to suspend or expel members, act on prospective Life Members, create committees, and shall have power in everything necessary and desirable in the conduct of business in accordance with these By-Laws. (Moved from Section 3 – no other textual change)

 

Section 3. Mid Cycle Expenditures (Current By-Laws)

The Executive Council, as a whole, shall have the authority to make any expenditure it may deem necessary for the welfare of the LARKS that does not exceed $1,000.00, after which such expenditure shall be ratified by a majority vote of the membership attending the next regular meeting in which a quorum is present. Each individual member of the Executive Council shall have the authority to make any expenditure he/she may deem necessary for the welfare of the LARKS that does not exceed $300.00 (individual purchase) or $1,000.00 (aggregate total), after which such expenditure shall be ratified by a majority vote of the membership attending the next regular meeting in which a quorum is present.

 

 

Section 3. Financial Authority (Proposed By-Laws – Complete rewrite of this Section)

The Executive Council, as a whole, shall have the authority to make any normal and routine expenditures it may deem necessary for the regular operation of the LARKS that does not exceed $2,000.00 (aggregate total).

All of these expenditure shall be presented to the membership at the next scheduled club meeting by the Treasurer.
