Dear DMCC Members,
The members of the Board of Directors have been working diligently over the last 3 months to review our club’s bylaws. They were last updated in 1990, so we had quite a few areas that needed to be addressed! In general, the changes the Board is proposing are to better align the bylaws to how the club has been conducting business in recent years. Most changes are reflected in the descriptions of Board of Director positions, how Board members are elected, and how Member meetings and Board meetings will be conducted.
The link to Proposed Changes to Des Moines Cycle Club Bylaws will take you to a document that provides a side-by-side comparison of the current bylaws and the proposed revised bylaws. The current bylaws are on the left-hand side of the document and the proposed bylaws are on the right-hand side. The changes have been indicated in two ways: items that are being removed are shown on the left with strike-through text and items being added are shown on the right with underlined text.
At the Member meeting on January 15, 2018, members will need to vote on the proposed changes to enable the elections for a new Board of Directors. Each individual Member and each adult in a Family Membership are voting Members of DMCC. For purposes of this meeting, you will be able to vote if you are either a 2017 or 2018 paid Member.
Please take the time to review the proposed changes. Pursuant to the requirements of the bylaws, if you would like a hard copy mailed to you, please email by December 18, 2017 to DesMoinesCycleClub@gmail.com, including your address, and we will mail you a copy. Please also email by December 18, 2017 if you have any questions or concerns, so the Board can respond. We will also reserve approximately 15 minutes at the December Member meeting to answer questions.
