Notice of Proposed Bylaws Changes
At the annual meeting, we will be voting on two proposed changes to the KCSA Bylaws. These proposed changes are as follows:
1. Article VII, Section 1(c) of the Bylaws, pertaining to the quorum requirement at general KCSA membership meetings, contains an error which we propose to correct by rewording the provision as follows:
“(c) At each membership meeting, a quorum shall consist of at least ten percent (10%) of the members. Members voting by proxy shall be included in the quorum count.”
2. Article III, Section 3 of the Bylaws, pertaining to membership dues, contains a provision which we propose to eliminate. This amendment would remove the following phrase from the last sentence of Article III, Section 3 on membership dues:
“, but no monetary category of membership shall be exempt from the duties of members, as set forth below.”
The purpose of this proposed amendment is to allow KCSA to establish a category of Sustaining members in KCSA, who would be excused from volunteering at the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse, Symphony Shop or other KCSA events which require volunteers (but such members would not be excused from the expectation of purchasing or selling five tickets to the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse each year).
