Hawkeye State Strokers Bylaws

I made a few changes to the original bylaws per Grannys requests but not much changed.

Hawkeye State Strokers Chapter Bylaws

I. Primary

H.S.S. chapter bylaws may not contradict the local chapter bylaws provided by Powerstroke.org. Bylaws contained herein are in addition to those provided by Powerstroke.org.

II. Membership

Local chapter membership is open to any Ford Powerstroke owner and enthusiast residing in the state of Iowa or in the immediate area surrounding. Chapter functions may be attended by any Powerstroke.org member, but only H.S.S. chapter members may vote on any matters pertaining to the H.S.S. chapter. H.S.S. logo must be located on the vehicle; location is up to the owner. Members must attend at least one of the H.S.S.'S events. Members must also have the chapter logo displayed in their signature or avatar whichever they prefer.

The exception to this is our military members. We all know that you are working hard to help keep our country great. The H.S.S. recognizes this and will not hold Military members to the same standards as non-military members. Furthermore, because of this, when counting membership percentage at official meets, military members are not to be included in the overall membership number. This is just for counting attendance and determining official meet numbers. Not ever disregarding the military members from membership in the H.S.S. Thereby enabling us to have official events by membership percentage count with out having to have all military members in attendance.

III. Chapter Events

All chapter events will be announced on Powerstroke.org, and in the H.S.S. chapter section. Any announced Iowa event which draws 25% or more of the H.S.S. chapter members will be considered a qualifying event for maintenance of chapter qualification. Examples of chapter events include, but are not limited to, track meets, camping trips, picnics and wrench meets. Powerstroke.org national events can be considered a chapter event.

IV. Chapter Decision Making

Any decision made by the H.S.S. will be handled by H.S.S. officers. Officers will first address Powerstroke.org administration. Once administration has approved, officers will turn to members to vote in the form of polls post on Powerstroke.org for all members to view. Any decision must have at least two-thirds vote from H.S.S. members before it is confirmed. In the event of a tie or split, another poll will begin in which two-thirds of members must vote in the majority otherwise the matter with be handled by H.S.S. officers and Powerstroke.org administration with the best interest of the H.S.S. chapter in mind.

V. Sub Chapters

Considering the amount of possible members in the H.S.S. chapter, sub-chapters among the H.S.S. may be required. At this point in time, the H.S.S. does not recognize the requisite of sub chapters. However, when members initiate concern and desire for sub chapters the issue will be addressed and a set of by-laws will be drafted for each sub chapter that will follow the by-laws of the H.S.S. Chapter and Powerstroke.org.

VI. Removal From Chapter Membership Roles

A member may be removed from chapter membership at any time, at the written request of the member. A member may be involuntarily removed by a two-thirds majority of voting members. A vote for removal will be posted and left open for no less than 14 calendar days. Grounds for removal include consistently rude or obnoxious behavior toward other chapter members, or any actions which bring discredit to the chapter or Powerstroke.org.

VII. Removal from Office

Elected board members may be removed from office by a two-thirds majority of voting members. A vote for removal will be posted and left open for no less than 14 calendar days. Grounds for removal include failure to perform the duties of the office, or any actions which bring discredit to the chapter or Powerstroke.org

VIII. Amendment of these Chapter Bylaws

These chapter bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds majority of voting members. Changes must be submitted to the Chapter Director and Assistant Director for review prior to voting.
