October 8 General Meeting

Posted September 28, 2022

Our next general meeting will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at 1:00pm, and we will be holding it online. The meeting will be streamed in real time on Kumoricon's Twitch channel. Additional participation is available on our Discord server.

There will be an amendment to our bylaws put to a vote of the membership. The primary purpose of this amendment is to add a set of rules and processes for holding remote (online) meetings of the membership. We started holding remote membership meetings during the pandemic under a provision of Oregon law, ORS 65.205, which allows any nonprofit organization to hold remote membership meetings, whether or not their bylaws authorize it. Our proposed amendment improves our bylaws by making clear that remote meetings are a normal type of meeting that we plan to continue to do. The amendment also includes a number of other legal and clarity improvements.

Amendments to our bylaws must be approved by both the membership, and the board of directors. The board approved this amendment at a board meeting on September 28.

The full text of the amendment (with detailed summary) is available for review. This document is unchanged from the version presented to the member at the September 18 meeting. Staff members may continue to ask questions in the #general channel on the staff Discord, and at the October 8 meeting.

If you have news to report during the "Good of the Order" portion of the meeting, you can email it to good.of.the.order@kumoricon.org.

The board of directors has authorized member participation by remote communication for this meeting, under ORS 65.205. If you are a voting member (staff) of Kumoricon, you may officially participate in this meeting, including counting toward quorum and the ability to vote, using the procedures listed on the Meetings page.

The full membership meeting schedule for the year is available at our Meetings page. Some meetings will start at 12:00 noon and some at 1:00pm, so please make sure to check the start time of each meeting. This page will always show the most up-to-date scheduling information for meetings of the membership.

We hope to see you there!
