Open Meeting on Bylaw Revision

The bylaw revision committee – Tom Huyck, Joan Pederson and Ellen LaRue - will hold an open meeting on possible revisions of the bylaws, on March 29 after the Service, in Chris Moore Parlor. The aging bylaws need to be brought up to date to conform to present day reality. If you plan to attend, please download a copy of the bylaws from the web site – About Us/Governance. Also contact me for a copy of my memo outlining some of the issues. If you have some ideas for bylaw revision, please submit them in writing to a member of the committee.
