Notice of proposed change to timing of the Annual Meeting of Members of the New Wave Corporation

A long-standing timing problem has necessitated that membership rolls for the year and mailing lists for ballots for the election of Directors be determined before all year-end membership donations were received.  To eliminate this timing issue, the following change to the New Wave Corporation by-laws has been proposed.  This move of the annual meeting from January to February would ensure that all qualified New Wave Corporation members can be mailed ballots in time to participate in the election of board members and makes it more likely that the previous fiscal year audit can be made available to members prior to the meeting.  Perhaps the change of timing away from the winter break will also encourage greater attendance.

Below are the proposed and existing versions.  The Board will vote on this change at their November meeting.  Please send comments or questions to  [email protected] .

Proposed:

Article 6.02:  Annual Meeting of Members.

The Annual Meeting of Members will take place in February of each year.  The Board of Directors will set a time and place for the Annual members meeting at their November meeting and notify the membership at least 10 days in advance of the meeting.  At the annual meeting the Board and staff will report on the state of the station.  A quorum will consist of 10 members.  Those at the meetings may offer recommendations to the Board and Staff.  The General Manager, if there is one, will chair the meeting.  Otherwise the Board of Directors will designate a chair.

Existing:

Article 6.02:  Annual Meeting of Members.  

The Annual Meeting of Members will take place in January of each year.  The Board of Directors will set a time and place for the Annual members meeting at their October meeting and notify the membership at least 10 days in advance of the meeting.  At the annual meeting the Board and staff will report on the state of the station.  A quorum will consist of 10 members.  Those at the meetings may offer recommendations to the Board and Staff.  The General Manager, if there is one, will chair the meeting.  Otherwise the Board of Directors will designate a chair.
