At the September 10 EVNA Board meeting, the directors voted unanimously to approve a revision to Article III, Section 2 of the EVNA ByLaws. Per the ByLaws, this proposed change will be presented to the Members at our next public meeting on September 25th in the upstairs meeting room at the EV Rec Center.
The proposed revision is in RED:
Section 2. General Membership
General Membership shall be open to persons who live, work at or own a business, or own real property within the boundaries of the Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association as described in Article II, Section 1 of these Bylaws. General Members shall be the only voting members of the Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association. There shall be two subclasses of General Members: Individual Members and Household Members. Individual Members shall have one vote if that member is present at the meeting. Household Members shall have two votes, but only if both members are present to vote. Under no circumstance will one person have two votes. Proxy votes are not permitted, including between the two members of a Household membership.
All members must abide by the Code of Conduct of members. The Code of Conduct is a separate document hereby incorporated in full by reference. Any member who seriously or repeatedly breaches the Code of Conduct is subject to cancellation of his or her membership, without prorated refund of membership dues. Such a member who breaches the Code of Conduct shall be notified in writing by the President of the Board of Directors, citing specific breaches of the Code of Conduct and any proposed action.
Members who were previously classified as “Business Members” as of the ratification date of these amended Bylaws shall continue their membership through the end of the one-year membership period as Individual Members. After the business membership expires, the membership eligibility requirements in this section apply to those members. They may remain members in their individual or household capacity if they otherwise qualify.
