CALL FOR THE 2019 ANNUAL MEETING
The Congregational Summer Assembly Annual Meeting shall be held on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. in the Assembly Building, CSA, Frankfort, Michigan. The following business will be before the meeting:
The following five candidates have agreed to be nominated at the 2019 Annual Meeting to serve as trustees from 2019-2022:
- Bill Barnes, 2. Molly Bazzani, 3. David Belknap, 4. Heidi Macaulay, 5. Jane Taylor
Three Bylaw proposals will be voted on at the July 2019 Annual Meeting.
Proposals 1 and 2 clean up language to eliminate “family unit” concept. Membership now is individual, not family, so the concept of family unit is inapplicable. Proposal 3 was made at request of Nominations Committee, which has difficulty recruiting enough Members to serve as Trustees. Currently 10 of 15 Trustees must be Members. The proposal changes the required number of Trustee Members to 9 of 15. Proposals 1 and 2 are voted on by all (Members and Associate Members). Proposal 3 will be voted on by Members.
