Proposed change crafted by the BLP at the request of the Governance Review Council are as follows:

Current:

330.4 Member-Owners have the right to run as candidates for election to the Board and to the Governance Review Council, except as noted in Section 410.3. A Member-Owner may not serve on both the Board and the GRC concurrently, except in the case of a Board member serving as the Board liaison to the GRC.

AND

461.2 No decision of the Elections and Nominations Committee shall preclude the right of any MO to be nominated or self-nominated at a membership meeting. 


BYLAWS PANEL PROPOSED BYLAW CHANGE:

We propose to eliminate 461.2 from the Bylaws since everything is being consolidated in 330.4  

 

330.4 (a) Member-Owners have the right to run as candidates for election to the Board and to the Governance Review Council, except as noted in Section 410.3. MOs must declare their intent to run for an elected position by completing a Nomination Form prior to the Membership Meeting or by being nominated or self-nominating from the floor at the time allotted for floor nominations.

 

330.4 (b)  Nominees who are not present at the Membership Meeting have the responsibility to confirm their intent to accept their nomination before the end of time allotted for floor nominations.

 

330.4 (c) No decision of any governing body shall preclude the right of any MO in good standing to be nominated or self nominate at a membership meeting. 

 

330.4 (d) A Member-Owner may not serve on both the Board and the GRC concurrently, except in the case of a Board member serving as the Board liaison to the GRC. 

 

And we propose to eliminate 461.2 from the Bylaws since everything is being consolidated in 330.4
