At our Annual PPYC Member meeting in January a motion was made and passed to form an independent Review Committee to review the provisions of the PPYC Constitution and the PPYC By-laws for any conflicts and to report back to PPYC Members at the January 2020 annual meeting. The PPYC board voted unanimously at its February 4, 2019 meeting to establish this committee and that it will comprise two board members and three PPYC members who are not on the board. Gary Pack and Sheila Armstrong were selected as the board members to serve on this committee because they were not on the board when amendments to the By-laws were made. Gary will chair the committee. We would like to extend an invitation to PPYC members to let us know if they would like to serve on this Review Committee. So the committee can be independent from the issues considered, it will be made up of members that can be unbiased in the review, interpretation or comparison of these documents. This leaves me out as a committee member because I was part of the 2018 board. However, the Review Committee will not operate in a vacuum and will provide ample opportunities for all concerned members to express any opinions and recommendations they may have.
If you would like to be considered to be part of this Review Committee, please respond by email to Gary (firstname.lastname@example.org) and
Let’s go sailing!
