Proposed Bylaws Change

Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association is voting on whether to make a small change to its bylaws during the Membership Meeting scheduled for April 19, 2018 at the Historic Kenton Firehouse. 

The proposed change is to the current Bylaws Section X. B. 3. Quorum. A “quorum” is a minimum number of people required by rule or bylaw to be present before business can be transacted by board of directors.

Currently, this section reads, “Quorum:  A quorum shall be 50% plus one (1) of the filled elected Board positions. If a quorum is not present, no votes can be taken.” See the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association's website at http://www.arborlodgeneighborhood.com/p/bylaws.html for details. 

The Board is proposing to change this language to read, “Quorum: A quorum for a board meeting shall be a majority of the number of directors in office immediately before the meeting begins.”

  The Board is proposing this change to bring the bylaws into compliance with language recommended by the Office of Neighborhood Involvement’s Bylaws Template https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/article/502710 (see p. 22). This proposed change was introduced at the January, 2018 Membership Meeting.
