On Wednesday, March 22, it will be time for the BYC membership to put on their big boy/girl pants and assemble at the BYC lower lounge for the General Membership and Town Hall Meeting. There are three important items to vote upon:

  1. ‘Shall the Ad Hoc Bar and Lounge Committee be accepted as a Free Standing Independent Committee, as defined by BYC Bylaws? And subject to its own rules of chair and membership?’
  2. ‘Shall the recommended changes to ARTICLE IV. DUES AND MEMBER CHARGE ACCOUNTS be enacted?’
  3. ‘Shall the Membership approve and ratify the decision of the Board of Trustees to rename the Audit Committee the ‘Financial Management and Review Committee’ with no change in membership composition, structure and duty?’

It is important to recall that a 25 voting member quorum is required to vote on these important issues. Please see the bulletin board outside the Club office for further notice.

The General Membership Meeting will start with Roll Call promptly at 6:00 PM. Following this, I would like to entertain a Town Hall meeting. I promise I WILL be there and will be happy to answer any questions or just throw out topics for discussion!

I am hopeful the B&L committee will have a ‘special voters drink’ to celebrate the formalization of their committee.
