(Note that this information is relevant to 2017 CABS members only.)
Enumerated below are two proposed CABS Charter amendments. These amendments require a vote by quorum of CABS Membership in order to be implemented. Date of said vote will be 3/17/17- details will be announced later. Here is a link to CABS' current charter: http://cabsgamers.org/images/CABS_Charter_Oct_2014.pdf
. These proposed amendments, along with a copy of the CABS' current charter will also be posted on the bulletin board at CABS.
Proposed Amendment #1:
Article VI Executive Board
Section 6 Quorum
A quorum of the Executive Board shall be a two thirds of sitting Board Members.
A quorum of the Executive Board shall be a majority of sitting Board Members. If less than two thirds of Board Members are present at a meeting, the number of votes required to pass a motion (except procedural motions involved in the conduct of the meeting) shall be the greater of:
(A) The number of votes ordinarily required to pass such motion, or
(B) The number of votes that would be required if two thirds of the Members were present and voting.
(Synopsis: Board can now still meet with only 3 members, rather the needing 4 members. A vote passing a motion still requires at least 3 "yes" votes, or a majority of sitting board members.)
Proposed Amendment(s) #2:
REPLACE Article VII.1.H with the following:
Conventions Board Member (2 positions)
1. Serve as a voting member of the Board of Directors of BUCKEYE GAME FESTIVALS LLC.
2. Regularly report to the CABS Executive Board regarding convention business.
3. Appointees to this position are subject to approval by the Board of BUCKEYE GAME FESTIVALS LLC.
4. These offices shall not be held by the President of CABS.
(Synopsis: CABS wants to maintain a minority interest on the Board of the new organization. IRS rules limits CABS Board Members to 2 positions on the new organization and the president of CABS is excluded from consideration.)
STRIKE Article VIII.3.
(Synopsis: Conventions committee is no longer needed under the new organization structure.)
STRIKE Articles VII.1.I.2 and VII.1.I.6.
(Synopsis: Conventions committee will no longer exist under the new organization structure.)
STRIKE Article VII.1.G.7.
(Synopsis: Promotion of conventions would no longer be a responsibility of Communications Director.)
