This is a notice that the board will ask the membership to vote on suggested bylaw amendments at the next annual meeting. The vote shall take place during the annual membership meeting at CiderCon at the Waterfront Marriott in Baltimore, Maryland at 9 AM on February 2, 2018.
American Cider Association’s bylaws have not been updated since their original issue. The organization has grown and matured tremendously since 2014, and revisiting our bylaws is an important next step. We have worked closely with a lawyer who specializes in membership organizations to ensure American Cider Association’s bylaws create a foundation that enables us to serve our membership in the best way possible. The board asks the membership to vote on the following amendments to American Cider Association’s bylaws:
- Synopsis of recommended changes
- Original bylaws with markups of changes
- Amended bylaws with all changes made, no markups
Please contact Bruce Nissen with any questions about these recommended amendments.
