7. Questions/Comments from Members
8. Resolutions : Change to Bylaw 8(b) (iii)
Election of President
…Whereas the membership should have the right to vote in the president and not be appointed by the board members only, and
…Whereas by appointing the president to that position it becomes a volunteer position.
…Therefore be it Resolved that Bylaw 8(b) (iii) be amended by removing mention of the President, and Adding 8 (b) (iv) which would read:
The president of the league should be voted on by the membership not the Board members.
9. Election of New Directors – Ron Di Pasquale
