PCA Potomac Proposed Bylaws changes

As an update to the changes proposed to the PCA Potomac Bylaws that were published in Der Vorganger in October 2021, the following changes are suggested, for vote by the membership at the December 4, 2021 Open Board Meeting and Annual Membership Meeting and Elections. Comments may be sent to secretary@pcapotomac.org.

ARTICLE VII: ELECTED OFFICERS AND THEIR DUTIES
Section 2. Duties.

Current
“b. The Vice President/President-Elect shall assist the President in the performance of the latter’s duties and shall act in place of the President in the event of the President’s absence, disability or disqualification. The Vice President shall also be responsible for finding qualified individuals to fill any open board positions that occur throughout the year.” 

Revision
“b. The Vice President/President-Elect shall assist the President in the performance of the latter’s duties and shall act in place of the President in the event of the President’s death, disability, resignation, disqualification, or failure to fulfill the duties of the office of President as determined by unanimous vote of the Executive Board other than the President. The Vice President shall also be responsible for finding qualified individuals to fill any open board positions that occur throughout the year.”

ARTICLE VIII: ELECTION OF OFFICERS AND THEIR DUTIES
Section 1. Officers.

Current
“The elected Officers of the Club shall be the President, Vice President/President-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer. No person shall simultaneously hold more than one elective office or any other Board of Director position other than directed by these bylaws without specific approval of the Executive Board. The persons holding the offices of President and Vice President/President-Elect may be elected to the same office in consecutive years, however they may not serve more than two consecutive terms.  The Secretary and Treasurer may serve consecutive terms subject to recommendation by the Nominations Committee.  No officer may continue in office subsequent to moving beyond the territory of the Potomac Region, if such a move causes the officer to be generally unavailable for members to reach, or otherwise impairs the officer’s ability to perform the duties of office at the discretion of the Board of Directors.”

Revision
“The elected Officers of the Club shall be the President, Vice President/President-Elect, Secretary and Treasurer.

In the event there are changes in the holders of these offices other than on or before January 1st, the remaining period served in the calendar year of the change will not be considered when applying this term limit. The Secretary and Treasurer may serve consecutive terms subject to recommendation by the Nominations Committee.  No officer may continue in office subsequent to moving beyond the territory of the Potomac Region, if such a move causes the officer to be generally unavailable for members to reach, or otherwise impairs the officer’s ability to perform the duties of office at the discretion of the Board of Directors.”
