A New By-Law - Member Service Requirement
At the CSC Annual Business Meeting held on January 15th, 2004, a By-Laws addition was approved to encourage involvement of all club members in club activities. As an all volunteer organization, without any paid staff, we depend entirely on our membership to keep the club afloat and functioning. This By-Laws change defines a minimum service requirement which has been set at 8 hours for 2004 and applies to each regular and associate membership. This requirement may be fulfilled by the member, or the member's spouse or dependents.
To assist the membership in fulfilling this requirement, projects, such as helping with Spruce-Up Day, special club regattas or social events, etc., will be posted on this new Help Wanted forum. Also, needs will be identified in the newsletter, The Main Sheet.
The member service requirement may be fulfilled through participation in any of the following activities:
a. Helping with club sponsored work days, shoreline cleanup or improvement projects
b. Assisting in a club sponsored sailing education program
c. Serving on race committee duty for club sponsored regattas
d. Helping with club sponsored social events
e. Participating on a Board of Director's committee
f. Completing other activities approved by a club officer
Your Board wants to actively involve each of you in the club's activities, for your enjoyment, as well as the club's benefit. We look forward to seeing more folks involved and sharing in the benefit each of us will see.
