With the rewriting of the ByLaws this year,the makeup of the Board has changed a little as positions have been moved around or removed.
Under the Revised ByLaws, the Board is made up of three Officers, President, Secretary and Treasurer. The Parliamentarian position has been eliminated and the President can appoint one as needed..
The revised ByLaws allow for up to six Directors with the Board having the ability to decide on an annual basis, which Directors to appoint for the upcoming year. The positions selected for 2019 are as follows: Membership, Programs and Special Events, Public Relations, Pond Tour Director, Historian/Photographer/AKCA Rep and a new position named Sponsors.
There are currently three Volunteer positions, Hospitality, Webmaster and Librarian. These are appointed positions and are non voting. Neither are they required to attend the Board Meetings.
In actuality, ALL positions are open and in the case of competing nominations, the representative will be chosen by a vote from the floor.
Note: Board Meetings are held the second Monday of the Month at Zilker Gardens Meeting Room. Any registered Member can attend.
