Hello all FSM Members, I’m sending this note to inform all members of recommended updates to the By-Lays which I have worked on for a while and I have reviewed with and received approval from the FSM Board to present these updates to members. I will summarize these changes at this Thursday’s FSM meeting at the Wappingers Elks Club starting at 7:30pm. The proposed changes will be discussed, modified if necessary and then we will vote to accept or not accept the proposed changes.
The updates can be classified into 3 simple categories:
1) Reflect recent policy changes such as the lower new membership fees and the addition of members and guests signing a liability release form.
2) Clarify sections where the wording and interpretations were ambiguous.
3) Correct spelling and formatting.
To help you understand the changes I’m including three documents:
1) The current By-Laws: fsm-by-laws-prior-january-2016-update-kps
2) A compare document which highlights the proposed modifications: fsm-by-laws-update-doc-compare-11062016-kps
3) A clean document including the changes: fsm-by-laws-clean-11062016-copy
Thank You and I’ll see you this Thursday.
