Wisconsin Chapter Proposes New Operating Yea ....

Your vote is important!

The Executive Committee is recommending changes to the Chapter by-laws. In 2017, the membership approved amending the fiscal year of the Chapter to July 1 through June 30th. This was done at the request of National and approved by the membership. The administrative year from January 1 to December 31 wasn’t changed. As a result the terms of the Executive Committee don’t match the fiscal year.

The Executive Committee has approved requesting the membership to approve an addendum to the by-laws to change the administrative year to run from July 1 to June 30 to match the fiscal year. If approved by the membership the terms of the existing Executive Committee would be extended from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021. The Executive Committee has agreed to their terms being extended if the membership approves the change to the Chapter by-laws. The annual meeting of the Chapter will be held in future years at the spring conference instead of the fall conference.

In addition the Executive Committee approved at the suggestion of the Chapter Treasurer to make a few changes to the fiscal policy. Current policy is that Chapter events are planned to generate revenues 15% in excess of expenses. That would be reduced to 3%. The other proposed fiscal change is to extend the life of CD’s from 12 months to 36 months.

Before the world got weird with COVID 19, these proposed amendments would have been taken to the membership for a vote at one of the conferences. With the new reality, we will be asking the membership to approve these changes by an electronic vote. 

Look for the email with more information about 2 weeks after the newsletter comes out. A red line version of the by-laws is on the internet if you wish to review (Login required). We need your vote!
