NOTICE OF FALL MEETING
THE MACTAQUAC SAILING ASSOCIATION (MSA)
November 4, 2013
Mactaquac Lodge, ground floor
Start at 7 PM
At our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 2, 2013 members approved a “new” Constitution for the MSA and, at the same time, agreed that amendments to this Constitution would be considered at our fall meeting. You have already received edits/amendments to this Constitution as proposed by your Executive. These proposed edits/amendments will be on the agenda for the November 4th meeting.
Please note that the proposed changes are mainly edits and do not change the intent of the Constitution.
There are only two content changes to be voted on as amendments.
- 1. Article IV section 4.4.2 Delete “The Vice Commodore will preside over a crane in/out standing committee”.
- 2. Article IV Section 4.3.3 and Article VI section 6.1.6, both of which stipulate that proposed changes/amendments to the Constitution, whether initiated by the Executive or the Membership, and the motions supporting these, be put in writing.
If members have additional amendments to the Constitution other than those already proposed by the Executive and/or items they would like to see on the agenda for this November meeting, it would be greatly appreciated if these proposed amendments and the motion(s) in support of these amendments, together with suggested agenda items were put in writing and provided to the Secretary (Stephen Leavitt) on or before October 21st at either of the addresses listed below. This will facilitate your Executive in preparing the Agenda which must be forwarded to members by October 28th. Your cooperation in this regard should also help expedite our discussions.
Secretary: Stephen.Leavitt@gnb.ca or 70 Sherwood Ct. Frederiction, N.B. E3B-2P5
We urge all our membership to attend this upcoming meeting, not only for quorum purposes, but to ensure that all have a voice in the affairs of our Association.
