|Proposed Bylaw Amendments are up for a Final Vote|
Board of Directors is proposing a change in the bylaws to state what
should happen if an officer or director moves outside the RNA boundaries
during the course of his or her term, but still lives in the
Heights. To promote continuity and allow for the recruitment of
dedicated replacements, the Board is proposing permitting directors and
officers to finish their one-year term, if the board approves and if the
director or officer still lives in the 07307 area code. We will
take a formal vote on this amendment during the July 2019 general
membership meeting on July 9th.
The changes are underlined and highlighted below:
Article III Members
Section 4. Termination and Suspension.
If a Member moves out of the geographical area, or sells his or her
property or business, membership in the organization is
for a Director and/or Officer who may complete their term of service
provided that: (i) they continue to reside within the boundaries of
Jersey City Heights (07307 zip code) and (ii) a majority of the
remaining Board approves. A Member may be suspended or
expelled for cause by a majority vote of the Board only after receiving
due notice of a hearing before the Board and an opportunity for the
Member to be heard by the Board. "Cause" for suspension or expulsion
includes, but is not limited to, a Member's breach of these bylaws or
failure to abide by any Code of Conduct implemented by the Board
pursuant to Article IV, Section 8 herein. A Member whose suspension or
expulsion arises from failure to meet eligibility requirements of
membership in RNA, such as by failure to pay the annual membership fee,
shall be given a reasonable opportunity to cure the defect.
Article V Board of Directors
Section 2. Qualifications, Number, and Election.
At the time of election, Directors shall be at least eighteen (18) years of age and shall reside within the geographic area of RNA.
Section 16. Relocation within the Boundaries of Jersey City Heights
the event a Director moves out of the geographic boundaries of RNA
during the course of their term, the Director's membership in RNA may
continue and they may complete their term of service, provided that: (i)
they continue to reside within the boundaries of Jersey City Heights
(07307 zip code) and (ii) a majority of the remaining Board approves.
Article VI Officers
Section 6. Relocation within the Boundaries of Jersey City Heights
In the event an
Officer moves out of the geographic boundaries of RNA during the course
of their term, the Officer's membership in RNA may continue and they may
complete their term of service, provided that: (i) they continue to
reside within the boundaries of Jersey City Heights (07307 zip code) and
(ii) a majority of the remaining Board approves.
