Agenda:

— Motion to waive “Robert’s Rules of Order” – Hugo Wong, Chair, Martlet Publishing Society

— Proposal of Changes to Bylaws – Hugo Wong, Chair, Martlet Publishing Society

— Election of new board members

— Budget proposal for Vol. 75 – Mary MacLeod, Operations Manager, the Martlet

— Adjournment

Summary of bylaw changes:

  • Changing all instances of “business manager” with “operations manager.”
  • Change to the hiring panel to make it more general and avoid a situation where the incumbent cannot be on the hiring panel for their successor. Staff can appoint a “person” (of any description) they see fit to serve the third position, not just a board member.
  • Previously, if a chair wasn’t present 30 minutes after the start of a board meeting, board members could choose an alternate chair. Time reduced to 10 minutes.

We look forward to seeing you there!
