In past years, the concept of an AGM was for sustaining members only. The meetings for all members were "town halls". There has been a town hall scheduled in the YSA website Members/Event Calendar for Saturday 8th June 2019 for sometime.

However, the bylaws will change on that date, at 10 am. The new bylaws do away with the confusing concept of both sustaining members and directors. The new bylaws give transparent control to the members and, as such, require an AGM of members: thus the June town hall will become the first AGM of members.

At this first AGM, the members will vote for 9 directors (those 3 with the most votes for 3 years, the next 3 for 2 years, the next 3 for 1 year). In future AGM meetings, 3 directors will be voted for 3 years.

More details will be circulated to all members via Soar Tales (e.g. info for members who cannot make the meeting to give a proxy vote).

I'm delighted to learn that the long-anticipated bylaws are to come into being.

It's been a long road to a democratic club. Well done all involved.

Hopefully the banquet is not on Mother's Day - perhaps Saturday May 11th?

I look forward to learning more about the new bylaws.

:roll: Mother's Day is indeed a challenging choice of date
