By-Law Task Force

A resolution was passed at our most recent board meeting providing for the establishment of a By-Laws Taskforce.  The Chair of the CRC, Jim Miller,  has appointed Chuck Woodbury to be “organizational” chair of this task force.  Please consider joining the task force and participating in both organization of the task force and the process of reviewing and recommending any updates to the by-laws.

If you have interest in the subject and are willing to commit some time to it, please contact our Director, Paul Bengtson, at .  We will then schedule an initial meeting.


This is an important issue for the Council so please give it your consideration.
