We would like to inform you of an important update regarding the voting process for the proposed bylaws modifications. In order to ensure a fair and representative decision-making process, certain requirements have been established.
For the bylaws modifications to be valid, we will require the participation or representation of at least two- thirds of our members. This ensures that a significant majority of our membership has the opportunity to contribute to the decision.
Furthermore, the approval of the proposed modifications will require a four-fifths majority of the votes cast. All members of EVSSAR who are up to date with the payment of their membership fee will be eligible to vote. We encourage every eligible member to exercise their right to vote and have a say in shaping the future of our society.
If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to reach out to our President. The original text of EVSSAR Bylaws can be accessed on our website here.
