8. General Meetings of the Members

There shall be one Annual General Meeting of the Members during the year, in the fall.

The Annual General Meeting is when Officers will be elected and confirmation of Appointed Directors and Directors-at-Large will be voted on. Provided that no less than 20% of the member organizations are represented, 25 participants shall constitute a quorum for any General Meeting. All matters, unless required by law, the Articles of Organization or these Bylaws, shall be decided by a majority of those members present and voting at a meeting at which a quorum is present.

The Secretary or President shall present a written agenda for a General Meeting to all organization members and Board members at least two weeks in advance of the actual date of the meeting, such notification to include agenda, slate of officers and directors for whom confirmation is requested, and/or other information as applicable.

Special General Meetings, such as the preseason placement meetings, may be called by the Board, or in response to a written request by five members, as necessary. Notice of any Special General Meeting and a meeting agenda shall be given at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting by email.

Whenever any written notice is required to be given to members, a waiver of notice given either before or after the action for which is required shall have the effect of written notice. Attendance by a member at a meeting without protest as to notice shall have the effect of waiver of notice.
