Attached are the Bylaws changes proposed by the Bylaws Committee for 2018:
Table of Proposed Changes
Proposed ONA Bylaws
A big thank you to the Bylaws Committee for the time, effort, and thought they put into these revisions. The majority of changes relate to the most common request we received from ONA members, having the opportunity to vote for themselves rather than a street representative vote on their behalf. While the Bylaws have always stated all members can vote, the scheduling of meetings and structure of the organization did not provide opportunity for residents to vote. The proposed changes make a way for members to vote on issues more than twice a year.
Most other changes relate to the structure of the document itself. Some items were rearranged and vocabulary changed in hopes of clarifying the intention; I wish more of this had been done but the committee could only address so much. More committees were identified and their formation spelled out in hopes of increasing participation and involvement of members.
Please review the proposed changes and if you have comments or questions, email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plan to attend the Oct. 18th meeting at Calvary Academy, 6:30 pm, when the vote on these proposed changes will take place. This is your neighborhood organization and we want need you to be involved so we can continue the work that has made Oakhurst a great place to live.
