Well, the poll closed several days ago, and the result was 10-2 in favor
of amending the By-Laws as proposed. Here is a link to the poll. The
first post has the proposed change.
Amendment to By-Laws ~POLL~
I was asked in that thread if I would post the revised By-Laws if the
vote was in favor. Here it is:
Sooner Powerstrokers Chapter Bylaws
Sooner Powerstrokers 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.
Local chapter membership is open to any Ford Powerstroke enthusiast residing in the state of Oklahoma. Chapter functions may be attended by any Powerstroke.org member, but only Sooner Powerstrokers chapter members may vote on any matters pertaining to the Oklahoma chapter.
III. Chapter Events
All chapter events will be announced on Powerstroke.org, and in the Sooner Powerstrokers chapter section. Any announced event which draws 25% or more of Oklahoma 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.
IV. 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 behaviour toward other chapter members, or any actions which bring discredit to the chapter. Additionally, a member will be removed from the chapter for nonparticipation. Participation requirements are satisfied by attending at least two chapter events each year, AND posting at least one message each month in the Oklahoma Powerstrokers chapter forum.
V. 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.
VI. Amendment of these Chapter Bylaws
These chapter bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds majority of voting members.
