Update to Bylaws July 1, 2021

by | May 28, 2021 | WAS News

One of the recommendations in the Wyncote Audubon Society Strategic Plan was to review and revise the Constitution and By-Laws under which Wyncote Audubon has operated. The existing
by-laws have been in place for decades and with little change since becoming an Audubon chapter in 1967 and incorporation in 1977. Major revisions were considered. The major changes in
the proposed bylaws include term limits for officers and board members, a streamlined list of standing committees, protection and safe guards for investment funds that serve as our endowment, a conflict of interest clause, and other changes necessary to conform with current legal requirements.

The Wyncote Audubon Board provided the input and feedback to suggest changes. The Board reviewed commented on various drafts developed on a pro bono basis by an attorney who has
volunteered his services. That work is completed and the Board recommends adoption of the proposed by-laws by the membership. The proposed by-laws are posted on the Wyncote Audubon website. Once approved, the proposed Constitution and By-Laws will become effective at the start of our new fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2021.
