Proposed Modifications to the Bylaws
July 25, 2020
 
The By-laws approved June 17, 2017, were modified slightly in the Annual Meeting the following year to allow Board Members who could not physically attend Board Meetings to participate virtually.  The challenges of 2020 have prohibited the ability to physically meet.
 
These proposed modifications of the By-laws expand BBLA's ability to hold virtual meetings. BBLA expects that when emergency conditions are no longer in place, physical annual meetings will resume. At this time, a change in the By-laws is warranted to provide flexibility for now and in the future, whenever conditions require the use of virtual technologies. 
 
The heart of these changes is in Article VI Meetings which define how Members and Board Members can participate virtually.
 
Note that our requirements for quorums and our notice periods have not changed. We have added the ability for the Board to hold the annual meeting at times other than in June. 
 
The Board seeks your approval of these By-laws changes which have also been reviewed by counsel.
 
Read the entire By-laws with the changes indicated in BOLD/ Italics . Please be prepared to offer any comments or questions at the annual meeting.
