December Club Meeting: 2020 Constitution and Bylaws Changes, 2021 Officer Nominations

As discussed during the DCARC November general meeting (held Nov. 12), three items are being modified in the club’s constitution and bylaws:

  1. The position of “Backup Treasurer” is being removed. The Club President and Vice President shall instead be named on all club bank accounts, in addition to the Treasurer, to ensure access to club funds.
  2. The responsibilities of the Vice President and Activities Manager are being separated to allow appointment of another club member to coordinate club activities, when available.
  3. The position description for the Emergency Coordinator has been refined.

A final vote on these proposed changes will be made during the December General Meeting.

The slate of nominations for 2021 officers will also be voted upon during the December general meeting. Additional nominations will be accepted until then. Club officers include: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Managers are not elected, but are club members who volunteer to provide a job necessary for the continued business of the club.

The next club meeting will be held on December 9, 2020, beginning at 7:00 PM, remotely via Zoom. Additional information about participating in the meeting will be posted in the club’s official mailing list:

Please feel free to contact any of the club officers directly should you have any questions regarding these changes.
