The SCOV Astronomy Club operates by a set of by-laws that are managed and maintained by its membership board. As is only appropriate, the current by-laws are available for review of the membership.
The Astronomy Board of Directors is recommending a change to Article 5, Section 3, Term of Office of the club by-laws. The Board of Directors recommends that a person may be on the Board of Directors for a maximum of four (4) consecutive years. This is an increase of one (1) year from the current by-laws. The change will be voted on by the general membership at the May17th meeting. The specific wording will be”
“Term of Office: all elected officers and board members at-large, shall hold office for a term of one (1) year and may be elected to a board position for not more than four (4) consecutive terms. After four (4) consecutive terms the elected officer or board member at-large must retire from the board for a minimum of one year before election to additional board positions. No member shall hold more than one office at a time.”
