AGA Seattle Chapter Membership Meeting

October 19, 2021
Virtual

Dear AGA Seattle Chapter Members,

Bylaws for the AGA Seattle Chapter require amendments to reflect revisions made and adopted by AGA National in 2019 and after. Changes to our chapter bylaws require a membership vote, with at least two thirds (2/3) of those voting approving the changes.  To reach a quorum for the vote, we must have participation by at least 20% of our voting membership, or 12 people (whichever is less).  So we need your vote!

In the revised bylaws version (available here), the comments and markups indicate changes from our current bylaws.  A comment marked as complete is a change required or suggested by AGA National. A comment with blue highlights and an open question is open for your comment.  The AGA Seattle Chapter board has agreed on the changes made in this version of the revised bylaws, but we would also like to hear any comments or questions you might have.

There will be two opportunities for member comment - at a Tuesday, October 19th virtual membership meeting, and via email.  For email comments, please email us and submit your feedback by close-of-business on Tuesday, October 12th. The comment template for emailing responses is at the end of this email.

A hybrid vote is being taken by email and at the October 19th membership meeting (via email for those who cannot attend the membership meeting).  For those planning to vote by email, if you have no comments, you can vote by emailing us and indicating a vote in favor of or against the proposed bylaws.

  • As mentioned above, our virtual membership meeting will be Tuesday, October 19th from 4:15 to 5:15pm (Pacific time). Registration is required, please use this link to register by Sunday, October 17th:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0sc-ivrjwvH9Alwe9x28METE37on3MqLzS. In addition to discussing and voting on the bylaws, we look forward to sharing results from our Chapter Membership survey launching soon.  The meeting is an exciting opportunity to share the many benefits of our chapter and AGA National, and to get a real sense of recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Puget Sound region is ever-changing and AGA Seattle Chapter would like to be a comfortable place for our members looking to learn, socialize, and volunteer with like-minded professionals, students, and academics.

Please let us know if you have any questions concerning the process for bylaw comment and voting, or the membership meeting.

Sincerely,

Your AGA Seattle Chapter Board
