2020 Virtual Business Meeting

Even though we won’t be meeting in person this spring, we want to keep you up to date on what your executive committee has been working on this year.

We will be hosting a virtual business meeting on April 28, 2020, at 12:00 PM ET. Check your Third Thursday newsletter for the WebEx information! If you did not receive the newsletter and would like to attend, please e-mail chair@ncuraregioniii.com. You can also visit our newsletter archives.  

At the meeting, the executive committee will introduce one change to the region’s bylaws and one change to our administrative procedures. The bylaw change will allow for virtual business meetings to take place in the rare circumstance that a meeting is canceled in the future. The change to administrative procedures closes a loophole that would allow for the current chair to appoint a chair-elect if the position was vacated with fewer than 90 days remaining in the term. The wording is here for your review.

If less than 90 days remain in the unexpired term, the Regional Chairperson, at her/his discretion, shall appoint a replacement or decline to fill the position until the next regularly scheduled election.
