Bylaws

17 Dec 2008

Amending the Bylaws pertaining to Reinstatement of Emeritus Members

 WHEREAS, the Board of Directors and Members deem it to be in the
 best interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
 Foundation's purpose to allow Members to both choose to become
 Emeritus, and to return to active Membership in the Foundation;

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Bylaws of the Foundation
 are modified effective the 27th of December, 2008, such that
 the article "Section 4.5. Reinstatement of Membership of
 Emeritus Members." is revised in whole to state;

    "Upon receipt of a written request and a new membership application
    from an emeritus member, the membership shall be notified of the
    pending request.  The request will remain in a pending state for
    30 days from the notification to the membership of the requested
    change in status, during which time any member may ask for a vote
    to approve the reinstatement.  If no such a vote is requested within
    30 days of such notice, or in the case that a vote is requested and
    a majority of the members of the corporation vote to approve the
    reinstatement, the membership of said emeritus member shall be
    reinstated as a full member of the corporation, and shall be entitled
    to exercise all rights as a member of the corporation, including all
    related voting rights."

 and that the article "Section 4.2. Emeritus Members." is revised
 by striking the phrase "by subsequent action of the members".

 Special Order 7A, Amending the Bylaws pertaining to
 Reinstatement of Emeritus Members, was tabled due to two concerns:
 "need legal review" and "there is no instance of the potential
 problem".

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that an ASF Secretary Committee, to
 be known as the "Bylaws Committee", be and hereby is

 further

 was directed to organize such as committee, as per
 his role as EVP/Secretary.

ASF Bylaws Change

 Ken Coar proposed to alter the bylaws to move the membership
 application deadline to after the membership election. The
 following resolution was proposed:

    WHEREAS, the Board of Directors deems it to be in the best
    interests of the Foundation and consistent with the
    Foundation's purpose to make the nomination and election of
    new members more efficient,

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Bylaws of the
    Corporation be amended as follows, completely replacing the
    existing text of Section 4.1:

     Section 4.1. Admission of Members. To be eligible for
     membership, a person or entity must be nominated by a
     current member of the corporation and must complete a
     written membership application in such form as shall be
     adopted by the Board of Directors from time to time. The
     nomination and content of the membership application must
     be included in a notice to the members, if any, of the
     corporation at least ten (10) days prior to any vote on the
     applicant's admission, which notice may be by electronic
     means. The initial members of the corporation shall be
     admitted upon the affirmative vote of the Board of
     Directors of the Corporation at the initial meeting of the
     Board of Directors.  Thereafter, members of the corporation
     shall be admitted as members of the corporation only by a
     majority vote of the existing members of the corporation.

    with the new text:

     Section 4.1. Admission of Members. To be eligible for
     membership, a person or entity must be nominated by a
     current member of the corporation and must complete a
     written membership application in such form as shall be
     adopted by the Board of Directors from time to time. The
     nomination must be included in a notice to the members, if
     any, of the corporation at least ten (10) days prior to any
     vote on the applicant's admission, which notice may be by
     electronic means. The initial members of the corporation
     shall be admitted upon the affirmative vote of the Board of
     Directors of the Corporation at the initial meeting of the
     Board of Directors.  Thereafter, members of the corporation
     shall be admitted as members of the corporation only by a
     majority vote of the existing members of the corporation,
     and after receipt by the Secretary of a membership
     application completed by each such proposed member within
     thirty (30) days following the vote.

    and be it further

    RESOLVED, that this change to the bylaws shall become
    effective as of midnight GMT on Friday, 15 November 2002,
    and be it further

    RESOLVED, that this change to the bylaws shall be made known
    to the membership of the corporation by electronic mail to
    the members list by midnight GMT on Thursday, 31 October
    2002.

 The discussion was relatively brief, noting that the change is
 to prevent the occurrence of a nominee filling out paperwork
 only to be later rejected for membership. It was mentioned that
 the stance becomes an invitation for membership from the ASF
 rather than an application for membership from a nominee, and
 also that this happens to be the first Bylaws change since the
 inception of the ASF.

 By unanimous vote, the above resolution passed.
