Fall 2022: Members Vote In Favor Of New Jersey Chapter BMW CCA Bylaw Revision
by NJ BMW CCA
At the September 24 BMW NA Cars and Coffee meeting New Jersey Chapter members voted to revise a section of the New Jersey Chapter Bylaws. Previously a vote by 2/3 of those present at an in-person meeting was required to revise the bylaws. Members voting on September 24 agreed to eliminate this requirement by a vote of 85 to 2. As such, the Bylaws can now be revised via an electronic vote, while still requiring a 2/3 majority of those voting. The previous language and the new language in the section of the bylaws approved on September 24 follow.
Article IX. Amendments: Section 1. These bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds vote of the members present at a general membership meeting. Notice of said meetings shall contain the subject matter of the proposed changes. The Executive Board or any ten members may cause the Secretary to include such information in the notice to members.
Article IX. Amendments: Section 1. These bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds vote of members participating in a special election called by the Executive Board for the purpose of revision. Notice of an election shall contain the subject matter of the proposed changes. The Executive Board may cause the Secretary to include such information in the notice to members. This election was the first step in a process to revise the bylaws. Members will soon receive an announcement of an election to make additional revisions.
