This posting - dated 04/26/2021 - serves as official notice to the membership of a proposed amendment to the VBREA Bylaws (detailed below) as required by the Bylaws. This will be voted on at the next Board of Directors meeting on May 19, 2021. A copy of the VBREA Bylaws is available on the ABOUT US page. If there are any questions or comments, please email: email@example.com and a Board member will reply.
The Board is recommending an amendment to the VBREA Bylaws, Article 6 – Committees, Section 6.9 – Membership - as detailed below:
Current text of Section 6.9: The Membership Committee Chair shall be responsible for maintaining the membership data base and keeping financial records of dues. The chair will provide information about the membership to the President, Secretary and Communications Chair as needed to support their respective needs. The chair will provide the Treasurer with membership and dues data needed for the Treasurer’s report and participate in the annual financial audit. The Membership Committee chair shall be a member of the Board of Directors.
Proposed text for Section 6.9: The Membership Committee Chair shall be responsible for maintaining the membership database and keeping financial records of dues on the dedicated VBREA laptop computer. The laptop computer will have the most current application of MemberTies membership/dues software unless a different software program has been approved by the Board of Directors. The VBREA laptop will remain the property of VBREA and will be transferred to a new Membership Chairperson as soon as possible after any election indicating a change in that position. The computer and all membership files will be used to support the annual financial audit in conjunction with the Treasurer’s records. Any additions/upgrades or changes to this computer will be approved by the Board of Directors unless they constitute routine annual upgrades of the MemberTies license, virus protection and similar upgrades of approved programs/software. These changes will be recorded in the Board of Directors’ meeting minutes for documentation. The Membership Chair will provide information about the membership to the President, Secretary and Communications Chair as needed to support their respective needs. The Membership Chair will provide the Treasurer with membership and dues data needed for the Treasurer’s report and participate in the annual financial audit. The Membership Committee Chair shall be a member of the Board of Directors.
