These are issues not within our realm, these suggestions would be best directed to your district vp, for discussion and action.

As far as I know ...we are still functioning under the Robert's rules of order....I have not scene of voted on any thing else to date!!!!!

I feel these are issues that should be brought before the membership and not decided behind closed door's JMHO

I dont see how my district would have anything to do with posting the by-laws or rules.

Why would posting the minutes be out of our realm?  think this would be a good way for the membership to know what each district is doing and what our leadership is deciding.

not sure as to how this all would happen but I think this would be a good idea.
 thanks

You have asked some good questions and I will try again to answer some of your questions with a little more explanation of what is taking place. The bylaws were reviewed this past summer by all officers and district officers. I served on that bylaw committee. These first bylaws for this club were one taken from another club that was under one roof and there members were not scattered all over the state. There were sections in these bylaws that do not suit this type of club. We spent a year on and off talking about what needed changed and at least one meeting that took one evening from 6 pm until  after midnight to be  finalize and get voted on by all the officers, district officers and bylaw committee members. The bylaws are currently at a lawyer. There are three other reasons the by laws are not complete with the lawyer, after we spent all that time correcting the existing bylaws, there was a new problem, insurance. PPHA had no insurance coverage for there members or the officers during PPHA events. This is now is being written into the bylaws. But that could not be done till we new what type of insurance would be required. That is ready to be completed but I opted to finalize it with the lawyer until next year since the insurance carrier was only approved last Sunday. I also called and they are going to try and give us a better quote then I have posted in the meeting minutes. The second reason is our secretary/treasure had some personal problems and she was unable to do much for the club and had to resign. The third reason is the district officers have no statement of place listed in the new bylaws. If you read in the meeting minutes this is currently being worked on.
Now after all that information, The officers and district officers have already been talking how to handle these two issues, bylaw and club finance information and how to let it be known and not abused by some one out side the club, interesting problems to say the least.
As far as posting meeting minutes? There is a whole new location on the board I started just for MEETING MINUTES. Along with that post, there is a statement to contact your District officer, if you have any questions. They would love to have you call them and ask questions. Getting involved with your district officer will get you involved in the club, and you will know everything you ever wanted to know.

Thank you for taking the time to explain. Most of this is my fault since I was only a lurker before.

I think that the officers are doing a great job. I have been in their shoes before and it is a thankless job at times.

Sorry, if my post was confusing. By out of our realm I was referring to the board administrators. We help with the board, we do not set policy for the club. Ideas, suggestions, questions about club business should be brought to the attention of the officers. This forum is for board suggestions, but posting bylaws would be more an issue of club business.
And as such should be handled by the officers.

I did not think of it as a officer matter. Makes sense now.  Alittle slow at times. I thought that by posting something in the forum suggestion section it would automaticly be brought before the powers that be.
Thanks

ps
plan on trying your reciept next week.
