Hello everyone, the Steering Committee met Tuesday night (March 31st) and approved a change to the club’s bylaws to facilitate elections under extenuating circumstances.
This allow the Steering Committee (SC) to make arrangements for mail-in or electronic ballots (details will follow).
The exact wording has been sent out but an excerpt of the bylaws that changed is also included again at the bottom of this blog.
Please take this opportunity to think about helping out Solar and join the Steering Committee, this member run club needs you to help keep making connections to each other and the great outdoors.
We screen captured the SC and added a bit of digital magic to show you how we roll…Brady Bunch style.
Come join us remotely or when we can all get back together in person.
Stay safe, wash those hands and remember not only your dog like to walk with you. You can social distance together…6 feet folks, have fun out there.
