Member Bylaws

Hi-Mar Club By-Laws may be amended by a two thirds vote of the members in good standing, as defined in Article VII.  A draft version that contains pending amendment(s) to the By-Laws must be distributed by the President to the entire membership at a meeting and/or via email.  

Once an assigned deadline passes for all final comments, additions and/or deletions, a vote to adopt is called for by the President.  If approved by two thirds vote, as noted above, the new By-Laws will be adopted, dated and presented to the members at the next meeting.

 

The 2016 By-Laws of the Hi-Mar Striper Club, as approved by a 2/3 majority vote of the members in good standing on May 19, 2016, will replace and supersede all prior By-Laws of the Club.

Alternate BoD position: This position will be a “non-voting” position and will be called upon to serve in the event of a vacancy either by an officer or board member during the two year term.  The “alternate” BoD position is a volunteer position and the alternate BoD member will need approval by the majority vote of the Board of Directors.   The alternate BoD member will be required to attend all board meetings and will contribute on matters being proposed for the good of the club.

Each Director present at a meeting of the Board shall have one vote on each matter to be decided. A quorum of 7 at a Board of Directors meeting shall be required and the vote process shall consist of a simple majority. An annual budget, approved by the Board, will be submitted by the Treasurer to the membership for their approval at the second club meeting of the calendar year.
