Business Meeting Agenda Item on RCA WSO Bylaws and Rules Changes

The RCA WSO board is proposing a change to the bylaws and a change to the standing rules on annual conventions. The purpose of the changes is to enable the WSO to continue to function in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, something that never was contemplated when the bylaws and rules were first adopted. They would give the board flexibility to conduct a virtual annual business meeting and board election meeting when extraordinary circumstances, such as a public health crisis, prevent an in-person annual convention. Because the pandemic may require cancellation of the 2021 annual convention in Tucson, the changes have been proposed so that we can elect new board members to replace those who are retiring. This is proposed to avoid the risk of the board not having a quorum, which could prevent the WSO from conducting business and paying its expenses.

All RCA meetings are being asked to vote on this proposal, and you are invited to attend the RCA Trailblazers meeting on September 27, where it will be discussed and voted on.
