At the October 18, 2007 General Meeting, neighbors voted to approve the proposed change to the bylaws regarding voting privileges. In the past, QVNA bylaws had always linked voting privileges to a specified minimum attendance at meetings. For the past several years, the requirement was attendance (documented by signing in) at any two QVNA sponsored meetings in the preceding year.
The QVNA Board proposed the following amendment to the bylaws re voting privileges:
“All residents of the Queen Village area are eligible for full membership in the Association. To be eligible, an applicant must be at least 18 years old, show proof of age and residency by presenting proper documentation such as: a driver’s license, birth certificate, passport, utility bill. At time of presentation to a Board member or an assigned representative of the Board, the applicant will fill out an application form with his/her name, address, telephone number, and if appropriate, an e-mail address. The applicant can apply at any time during the calendar year at the QVNA office, at any community meeting where a Board member or a representative of the Board is present, or at the polling place prior to voting on election day.”
Note: The “Queen Village area” refers to specific wording in the Bylaws. The bylaws can be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the members present at a membership meeting. The bylaws require the publication of the proposed amendment in the Crier, and posted on the web site for at least two weeks in advance of the meeting.
