Consensus Agenda

Proposal: COVID-19 TESTING PROTOCOL & RESOURCES

Members and other visitors must have a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result no more than 2 weeks old. The board may approve exceptions in case of extenuating circumstances, for example difficulty getting a test or results from a test, very limited contact with potential exposure, a history of COVID-19 or positive IgG test combined with evidence of recovery. Board should discuss creating a list of free testing centers based on member demographic & consult with NYCPPE as needed going forward.

New Business

For each prospective member, please confirm no later than Thursday before the meeting:

  • Has the member visited 3 times at the regular Tuesday and Thursday open nights?
  • Has the member received the briefing? When, and who was the briefer?
  • Has the member's bio and photo been circulated on the members list? (not just blabber)

Bylaws change

This is a proposal for a change to the bylaws. To be adopted at this meeting, the members would need proper notice of the meeting, so please confirm that this happened.

In Article 3, Section 1, the last sentence is replaced with:

"The board must call the annual meeting of members in accordance with Section 603 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law to be held by March 31."

At the end of Article 3, Section 8 is added:

"All meetings may continue be held virtually, and votes cast electronically, using procedures adopted by the board or by the members."

In Article 4, Section 1, the first sentence of the first paragraph is replaced with:

"The board of directors consists of at least three and at most eight directors."

In Article 4, Section 1, this paragraph is added:

"Notwithstanding the first paragraph of this section, the board of directors consists of at least three and at most ten directors, through the annual meeting to be held in 2022. Provided, that after the annual meeting to be held in 2021 (at which up to ten directors may be elected), vacancies may only be filled to the extent necessary to bring the number of directors up to eight, and may not be filled if there are at least eight directors."

In Article 4, Section 2, these two paragraphs are added:

"Officers may continue be removed by the board with or without cause.

"The board may appoint members as officers (including additional secretaries and treasurers), for a term ending at the next annual meeting, and may decide their duties and powers. Officers appointed under this paragraph shall be non-voting participants in board proceedings, if not already elected to the board."
