We wish to thank Jim Farkas & Cortney Sloan for their service on the Board of Directors. They have made fantastic contributions to the Board & we will certainly miss working with them.
Additionally, the Board of Directors has reviewed our club’s Constitution, Bylaws, and Policies.  As a result, the Board is proposing two changes to the Constitution for the membership to vote on at the March 25 meeting.

The proposed changes to the constitution are:
Change 1
Article I    Membership
Section 2   Types of Membership
Removed example of Runner of the Year from example of why a free membership might be awarded.
Removed the word “single” from before parent in the example of parent and child as a type of Primary Plus One membership.

Change 2

Article VIII  Elections
Section 2   Nominations
Adding the sentence:  “A person serving on the Nominating Committee may not be nominated to the board during their service on the committee.”
