Bylaw Changes
Section 1:
Officers of the Association:  The officers of the WCG shall be:  Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary, and Treasurer.  Add - Second Vice President.

Section 3:
As it reads now:  Consent:  Individuals, including all eligible persons, must provide written notice of their intent to become a member of WCG and attend at least two (2) WCG meetings within the twelve months prior to the annual meeting of the current year.  Only members may vote in WCG elections.

Ed Zarrins would like 2 meetings taken out.  Kathi Holmes would like the paragraph replaced with the following:   if a person is eligible to be a member of WCG, by living within the WCG boundaries, and indicates a desire to be a member by checking the member box on the sign-in sheet, then he/she can vote at the that meeting. (wording changed by Richard Mohle)

Note:   Only members at a general meeting may vote in WCG elections and Bylaw changes.  (see Section 4 - Membership Actions.).  (This is also within the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) rules.  ONI rules could override our Bylaws).  As far as I can see, I will be the Chair and appoint a presiding officer to run the meetings.  I do not feel that it needs a bylaw change.  The chair has the right to appoint.
