Re; FLOA By-laws updates of July 2016 document

During our 2019 / 2020 “hiatus” time frame, your Board has been reviewing our current Articles of Incorporation (AOI) and existing By-laws that were formally published July 2016. Click HERE for the complete copy of the current by-laws with proposed revisions.

The review was necessary since business situations have surfaced that needed clarification of guidelines for FLOA Board operational purposes.

To accomplish this revision / amendment / modification function, your Board performed the following tasks; 

  • Complete review of our AOI. The review found that intent was still applicable as we exist today, a non-profit organization. Noticed that several AOI articles referenced our by-laws for procedural instructions that needed to be reviewed for their existence.
  • Researched “google internet” legal websites for by-law recommended formats. Comparing those researched facts and examples, it revealed that certain generic guidelines were not present in our existing by-law (July 2016) as currently published
  • The revised by-law “Draft” was provided to the Board during Nov 2019. Board recommendations and input were incorporated at our Jan 2020 work session.  More electronic Board working reviews were conducted, modifications made, and “Draft” purposed narratives agreed upon.

Per our current By-laws guidelines, the Corporation membership is to be provided a “working copy” for a minimum 30 calendar days or more.  During this time frame FLOA membership may submit comments to any Board member or e-mail your input to: waynerfloa@gmail.com.

The plan is to review membership submissions from the date of this letter through our May 2020 Board meeting. At the June 2020 community meeting, the Board shall formalize the revised By-law narrative for approval and implementation.

If the global Health situation is not improved to some form of normal living, then the formal process shall be accomplished by electronic communication.

Please note, when you review our purposed narrative revisions, be aware of the colored font narrative, it is;

1. Narrative that is “Black” font exists in our currently published by-laws, no changes.

2. Narrative that is “Green” and "Red" font are Board recommended additions, revisions or modifications.

That narrative adds cross references our AOI, provides clearer guidance for certain processes, Board functions, establishes qualification timelines, identifies existing business / operational requirements and incorporates updated formal legal compliance rulings.

Thank you for your support in reviewing the Board proposed changes. When formally implemented, the revised By-laws shall allow the FLOA Board to better serve the “Community” of Forest Lakes.

Best regards,

Wayne Rothwell

President, FLOA
