Dear SGO Member:
In keeping with SGO Bylaws Article XVII, Section 17.2, Amendment Process, and the 30-day notification requirement to its members, the SGO Board of Directors is proposing the adoption of three bylaws recommendations regarding Article III: Membership. View the proposed changes and current SGO Bylaws here.
Bylaws Review2013 Bylaws Amendments
The proposed language has been reviewed by the Bylaws Committee and approved by the Board of Directors for review and vote by the membership.
In 2012, the SGO bylaws were amended to allow for electronic voting of bylaws changes. These recommendations will be voted upon by the membership online beginning Monday, March 4, 2013. In order to be adopted, proposed amendments must receive the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the votes cast with no less than 15% of voting members voting.
Please make sure to check your email inbox in March for instructions on how to cast your vote. An email will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org and the voting will be conducted in the same manner as the 2013 Board of Directors election which is occurring now.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding these recommendations, please contact me at (973) 971-5900.
