Proposed Bylaw Changes for 2021 Annual Meeting

The Board is sponsoring two amendments to the CSA Bylaws. In a vote taken at the September 26, 2020 Special Meeting the membership voted overwhelmingly to change privilege ticket to Assembly ticket. The Bylaws Committee reviewed the current Bylaws and found three places where privilege ticket occurs. These occurrences are all in section I, Membership.

The proposed amendment #2 arises from our update to the CSA Articles of Incorporation. The Board recommends moving the language that defines the term of office for the Trustees from the Articles to the Bylaws.

CSA Articles of Incorporation Update and Vote

The Board of Trustees voted to update the Articles of Incorporation, which had not been updated since originally filed in 1932. The Articles are foundational corporate documents filed with the State of Michigan and create the corporate existence. Our Bylaws work in conjunction with the Articles of Incorporation to form the legal backbone of the Assembly. The membership will vote to approve the updated Articles at the 2021 Annual Meeting.

Message from the President

November 24, 2020

The CSA Board of Trustees and Committee/Fund Chairs met on Saturday, November 14th virtually via Zoom to conduct CSA business.

The Board thanks everyone for helping with the business of the Assembly during this unusual time. We actually accomplished quite a bit even being closed:

  • We learned how to Zoom to have Board and Committee meetings & our first virtual Annual Meeting.
  • We voted to change the name of the privilege ticket to Assembly ticket.
  • We figured out how to register members outdoors while social distancing with no computers.
  • We had virtual art classes and video stunt night, spiritual moments and Celebration of Life, social distancing outdoor yoga and water aerobics classes, and Ladies Bible Study.
  • Volunteers kept our grounds neat and tidy, the Crystal court backboards were scraped and repainted, invasives were removed from the Crystal Beach, non-native honeysuckle was removed around the Woods Courts and ballfield.

I know everyone is hopeful we will be together next summer. It all depends on the state of the pandemic and the availability of a vaccine. We may have to make adjustments but we will decide that in the Spring.

Stay safe and healthy and have a Happy Thanksgiving,

Holly Freeburg, Board of Trustees President
