2. Introduction of New Managing Board Officers and Members (Nigel Edelshain)

1 Year Renewal of all officers through Motion to Suspend Bylaw 3.1

- Motion to Suspend By Law 3.1 for a period of one year and extend the terms of all officers and directors for a period of one year during which time the management team will propose to the board revised By Laws that reflect the new structure and operations of the club.

Rationale:
1. The present by laws require elections in June. This motion allows us to stay in compliance with the laws as they stand now and also gives us more time to revise them to reflect the operations of the club. The by laws may be modified by a majority vote of the board. So the board has the power to pass this motion.

2. The motion also puts a time limit on this suspension so it cannot go beyond one year.

3. As part of the by laws revisions, boar members may have responsibilities and or may need to meet certain qualifications. By adopting this motion we avoid having to put new people on the board who may not be qualified under the new by laws. We do not want to offend anyone.
