By-laws Amendment Proposal

At our November General Meeting we announced a proposal to our by-laws to make our name change from 2016 official. At our January General Meeting on January 25th at 6:30pm, we will be voting to make those amendments. Please take a look at our proposed by-laws changes.

Proposed Amendments - November 2016 (docx)




Proposed By-law Amendments

Every couple of years we revisit our Constitution and By-laws to determine if any changes need to be made in order to keep up with the way our organization works. The only major proposed change is to eliminate the Education Committee since the NNA board already has an official seat on the Neighbors Investing in Childs Elementary (NICE) board. Most of the other changes are minor, but we're always looking for feedback. We'll be presenting these proposed changes at our March meeting (March 22nd, 2016) and having an official vote at our April meeting (April 26th, 2016). Please come out and voice yuor thoughts about your local civic!
