HACD Bylaw Change Proposed:

During its teleconference meeting on June 1, 2018, the HACD Board of Directors voted to amend the
HACD By-Laws to create an organizational/ corporate membership category. As per Article 9 of the
current By-Laws, that proposed amendment must now be voted on by the HACD membership.
 
Should the HACD By-Laws be amended as follows?
 Insert “organizations and corporations” into section 3.1.
 Insert a new section, “4.4 Organizational and corporate members shall receive the
HACD newsletter, all general correspondence to members, and have other rights and
privileges as determined from time to time by the HACD Board of Directors.”.
 Change existing section 5.3 to 5.4 and insert a new section “5.3 Organizational and
corporate membership does not include voting privileges.”

If approved, the amended by-laws would read as follows:
 
Article 3. MEMBERSHIP AND DUES
3.1 Membership in the Division shall be open to persons, organizations and corporations holding current membership in the BFA.
3.2 The Division may set annual membership dues, as it deems appropriate.
