The next SFARC meeting will be held Wednesday, August 26, at the Bellville Restaurant, on the courthouse square, in Bellville. Dinner begins at with business meeting to follow. A final vote on proposed changes to the Club Constitution regarding membership structure will be held at the August meeting. Below is a reprint of the applicable section of the Constitution, as modified:
Section 2 - Levels
To Provide Membership to the widest possible group of applicants, the following division in membership levels will be provided to those eligible:
Full (voting) Licensed Amateurs and members of their immediate families living in the same household.
Honorary (non-voting) Elected by proclamation (no fee).
The subject of Club memberships was discussed -- members decided to do away with the multi-level membership structure currently provided for in Section 2 of the Club’s constitution. Dave Jenkins volunteered to draft proposed modifications to the Constitution to be voted on at the August meeting.
[None that really come to mind…]
