February 4th’s General Membership meeting will see the introduction of two special issues requiring active members to vote. The Board of Directors, through the Governance Committee, has reviewed EPX’s incorporation documents and have made several adjustments to our Corporate Bylaws. These changes are in keeping with the actual practices EPX has followed in the first 18 months of our existence. When the bylaws were written in Summer of 2006 many of the actual functions of EPX had not yet occurred. Templates, provided by the city and other civics, we used as “boiler plate” and tailored to what was expected at EPX. Now having lived with the document for a while we see where a few simple changes would facilitate clearer understanding of the bylaws and truer reflection of the officer’s and association’s actions.
In addition, to the minor bylaw revisions, which will be presented in February and voted upon in March, the boundaries of the association have come under review. The Board is requesting the membership expand our borders east to eighth street. Details of both issues will be provided at the February meeting and online, through links to the Governance Section of the web site. Both items will be discussed at length in February and March and votes will be cast at the March 3rd meeting.
