The Vestry at its August meeting approved a draft revision of the By Laws, the first since 2004. We agreed that it would be appropriate to give all members of the congregation an opportunity to provide comments and suggested changes.
The draft of Revised By Laws
current By Laws in effect today
Any suggested changes must be received no later than August 31, 2016 in order to be considered. We will consolidate responses as appropriate and then have the Vestry vote to approve/disapprove at the September meeting. Once this is completed the final proposed By Laws will be submitted to the congregation as required by the existing By Laws, for review 60 days prior to the Annual Meeting in December. Once the vote is taken they must also have final approval by the Diocese.
We encourage your participation and hope you realize that while we can’t guarantee that all suggestions will be included we will make a sincere attempt to have the document reflect our collective ideas. If you have suggested changes please write down specifically what you would like to see modified, that way we won’t risk mis-interpreting your ideas.
If you have questions please contact Bill Bittenbender, firstname.lastname@example.org or Doug Stone, email@example.com. Please note Doug’s new email address.
