FCLB Proposed Bylaws Amendments

Click for Bylaws Amendments Cover Letter
The following proposed bylaws amendments were sent to member board offices and board chairs on Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Issue Should the deadline to propose bylaws amendments be changed from 120 days prior to the annual meeting to 90 days prior?
Proposed by FCLB Board of Directors
Background This would allow the FCLB Board of Directors to timely address issues that may come before the board at its January midyear meeting and still get proposals to the membership at least 60 days prior to the annual meeting. The current 120 day deadline falls about 2 weeks short.

Since the board only meets in person at the midyear meeting and at the annual conference, it is helpful to address issues in person and also when legal counsel is present.

Issue Should there be a provisional membership status (approved by the FCLB Board of Directors) created to enable boards to apply as new FCLB members?
Proposed by Dr. Kirk Shilts, Massachusetts Delegate
Background The current bylaws require that new members be approved by the membership at the Annual Meeting.

FCLB has received two applications over the past year from Australia and New Zealand, both of which will be formally admitted if approved by the delegates at the 2011 Annual Meeting in Marco Island. In the meantime, these boards would like to participate more fully as well as to receive FCLB services, so this delay is awkward and will arise again if FCLB receives additional midyear membership applications.

Bylaws Committee Recommendation Do not pass
(Committee notes that a better solution has subsequently been proposed by legal counsel and supported by FCLB Board of Directors, Dr. Shilts concurs. Amendment to be proposed in 2012.)
