The following Bylaws change proposal was approved by the board to be considered by the membership at this year’s AGM.
Bylaws , Article IV, section B.1.f
A family membership consists of two or more individuals related by blood or marriage living in the same household.
A family membership consists of multiple people with a single primary address with at most two over the age of 24.
This change is intended to have two effects.
- Allow for more flexibility by deleting the “blood or marriage” requirement and allowing family memberships based on shared residence alone.
- Insure that adult children begin maintaining their own memberships instead of remaining indefinitely on parental memberships.
The specific age requirement matches the newly adopted age limit for student memberships.
