1. Changes all references to the managing group of officers and committee chairs from the “Executive Committee” to the “Board of Directors”. The change makes the bylaws consistent with common usage.
2. Creates an Assistant-Treasurer position that may be appointed by the Board. The Assistant Treasurer may be delegated certain of the Treasurer’s duties as may be needed or helpful to the Treasurer. The bylaws currently refer to the check signing authority of an Assistant Treasurer but do not have any provision on how that position is filled. So, the main purpose of this amendment is to clean up that discrepancy and gives the association some flexibility for having checks issued when the Treasurer is not available.
3. Changes the name of the Secretary position to “Secretary-Historian”. This position has always had historian duties. The name change emphasizes that function.
4. Expands on the role of the Community Planning and Development Chair (including new responsibility for our relationship with the OOCCL), the Crime Watch Chair (including specific reference to NOCUPP), and the Membership Chair (requiring periodic reporting on the important function of delivering new member packets).
