Special Meeting for all HSIH Members
VOTE on the proposed changes to the Society's Bylaws.
As our society continues to evolve, it is important that we review our constitution and by-laws. We are proposing a number of changes in an effort to better reflect the way our executive board is operating and clarify a few ambiguities in our former bylaws. You will notice most of the changes have to do with the structure of our standing committees, and the archiving of our Society records.
These proposed changes are highlighted in yellow in the accompanying text. Corrections of grammar or punctuation that do not change the essence of the document have not been highlighted. As members of the Historical Society of Islip Hamlet, you have the right to review these changes and vote on them in a Special meeting which will be held on September 6, 2017 at 6:30 pm at the Islip Public Library, 71 Monell Avenue, Islip.
