Officer discussion

I feel this has divided this chapter and I don't like what is happening to a very active group. At our staff meeting last night this situation was discussed. I want to add that the staff members who are also members of this chapter did not participate in the dicussion because they did not want to influence the discussion in anyway. With that being said......

According to the by-laws set forth by the Org when we first decided to start the chapters, it stated that each chapter would have a Director, Asst. Director and a Historian. There is no mention of Co-Directors. Your chapter does not have any additional by-laws that address any of the issues that your chapter is facing. Look at some of the other chapter's by-laws and you will see what I am talking about. It is believed that if you go with co-directors it will lead to a split in the chapter, which yall have said you do not want.

After much discussion between the staff members it was decided that you should have nominations for the positions of Director, Asst. Director and Historian(s). Put up a poll with the names of the nominated members and let the chips fall where they may. Then after the elections are completed, you can look at updating your by-laws. Draw them up, discuss them, get them the way you want them as a group, approve them according to your by-lays and then submit them to staff for approval. I hope all of this makes sense. We as a staff are here to help yall in anyway we can. Yall are a great chapter and a very active chapter. Let's not let this slow you down.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Co-directors will not be allowed. There is one Director, one Vice-Director and one Historian per chapter. Those are the positions that are eligible to be filled. You may select anyone to serve in those positions according to your by-laws.

Also, admin. Why cant we just change our by-laws? The by-laws are voted on by our members, so our members decide what changes. I can start this whole discussion about getting them changed, then we can vote on it, and they will be changed. Just like any law, there are always modifications later on.

Is that what your suggesting that we do?

One Historian is elected and they appoint others to be their assistants if they are unable to be at a meet. That is where multiple Historians come into play. Sorry I didn't clarify that point.
