Proposed Changes to the RCPC Bylaws

Saturday, April 5, 2014

Rockridge residents will vote at the Town Hall meeting on April 17, 2014 on two proposed amendments to RCPC bylaws. The proposals would:
1. Amend Section 7.1 (former Sec. 8.3(a)) to provide that directors elected at the annual meeting shall serve "until the election results have been certified for the election held at the annual meeting in the second calendar year following" (at present, such terms expire at the time of the annual meeting); and
2. Amend Section 8.6(b), relating to the right of RCPC members to "elect a director at any time to fill any vacancy not filled by the directors." The amendment would specify the threshold of approval in any such vote, including that the affirmative votes must constitute a majority of the required quorum (not only of members voting).

The full text of the current and proposed language of Sections 7.1 and 8.6(b) is now available,  and at the April 17 Town Hall meeting. Residents may also request an email copy of the full text; email requests to info@rockridge.org.
