[RC] the new bylaws and family membership - Michael Maul
The link from the online comparison of old and new has the following note below
on family memberships. No changes are planned in the dues structure for family
memberships. It's just a better way to allow voting on AERC issues.
This area no longer shows the family membership. The existing bylaws
defines family membership for voting purposes as having two votes.
Under the new bylaws all family members 18 or older will be allowed
to vote. Both existing and proposed bylaws allow the board to
establish the dues structure so there need be no change in dues
with the passage of the new bylaws unless the board decides to
change for some other reason. Family membership as originally
designed was a father and/or mother with all supported children
living at one address or at college, receiving one Endurance
News and two adult membership votes. Under the proposed
bylaws - all family member adults will be allowed to vote.
For example, a father, mother and two daughters (both 18 or
older and supported) still at one address or at college
receiving one Endurance News would now have four votes.
The words family membership may not be in the proposed
bylaws but everything is in order for the board to continue
the family membership dues structure. Section 5.05 provides
for the board to determine dues structure and which allows
for the family membership dues structure to continue.
