Proposed Resolution for Amending By-Laws at Annual Meeting
The Board of Directors has recommended amendments to the Cooperative’s By-Laws for consideration by Garden Valley Technologies members at the June 6 Annual Meeting. If adopted, the proposed amendments would provide more options regarding the manner, method, and location of the Annual Meeting; include voting by electronic means when determining the quorum necessary for transacting business; allow for three different voting methods (in person, mail, or electronic means) and remove voting done by acclamation, standing or raising of hands; create a nomination process to become a candidate for the Board of Directors and process for filling a vacancy when no person is nominated; provide for renumbering of Sections within Article III; and require approval of at least two-thirds of all eligible members entitled to vote regarding disposition of fixed assets.
The Board’s Resolution and the complete red-lined version of the proposed amended By-Laws are available HERE.
