CONA By-Laws (Amendments)
Attached is a marked-up draft of the proposed changes to the CONA By-Laws as submitted by the CONA By-Laws Committee and approved by the CONA Executive Committee on July 10th. These amendments will be noticed at the July 16th general membership meeting and voted on at the August 20th meeting. Hard copies of the draft with consolidated changes will be distributed at the July 16th membership meeting.

The significant changes include:

1) Clarification of the membership terminology - eliminating the confusing "Board of Directors" term and replacing it with "CONA Membership".

2) Modifying our mission to include education and providing for sharing of information and tools for neighborhood development

3) Clarifying the dues structure - including when dues are considering delinquent and providing for a membership renewal process.

4) Removing the Court Watch Committee from the list of Standing Committees (the responsibilities will become part of the Public Safety Committee).

5) Adding the Codes Committee to the list of Standing Committees.

6) Clarifying the ballot form and the process for annual elections.

7) Providing for electronic meetings, discussion, and voting on matters before the Executive Committee. This does not replace nor apply to regular CONA meetings.

8) Providing for electronic notification in lieu of hard-copy notification to the membership.

Respectfully submitted,
CONA By-Laws Committee

Since this is an important undertaking, I wrote some revisions into the document that would provide more checks and balances, clarity, transparency, and objectivity.
