2021 Bylaw Voting
The membership of SHAPE Montana will vote on the following bylaw issues at the annual conference in Helena, August 1-3, 2021.
Remove: The requirement of SHAPE America membership for Board Members. Keep the requirement for Executive Board.
Rationale: The cost of SHAPE America membership is a lot for board members to pay. The Executive Board is often asked to be a voting member of the Delegate Assembly at the national convention and SHAPE America membership is required for this, so the SHAPE Montana Executive Board needs to have SHAPE America membership but it is unnecessary for Board Members. SHAPE Montana membership must always be maintained.
Remove: The requirement for the Treasurer to be bonded.
Rationale: This is an unnecessary and large expense. The checks and balances already in place within the board are sufficient for the Treasurer to be efficient and also provide for complete transparency.
