Lost and Found
The Holiday party was a wonderful time! We hoped you enjoyed it. Unfortunately, a few items were left over afterwards. If you left any kitchen utensils you want back, or dishes, please contact Cheryl Clark by January 31, 2015 at 972.971.2958 or firstname.lastname@example.org or they will be donated to the Church's kitchen. Also, there is a Ladies medium black rain jacket that was left. Again, contact Cheryl by January 31 or it will be donated.'

At the January 18, 2015 Annual meeting of the Unit to be held at the session break at the Election Sectional at the Richardson Civic Center, the following bylaw change will be up for a vote of the membership. The board wants your input. We are asking for a vote, not just approval. The board is divided on the issue, and so it is up to the membership to make the final choice. Please make plans to vote on this the Sunday of the January Election Sectional.
The bylaws as currently approved -
Section 6.4 Number and Qualifications. The Board shall consist of nine (9) members. All directors must be, and must have been for at least 180 days prior to their election, members in good standing of the ACBL and the Unit. No member shall be eligible for election as a director who, at the time of the election (i) owns, or within the preceding 12 months owned, an interest in, (ii) acts, or within the preceding 12 months acted, as a manager of or (iii) received during the preceding 12 months compensation for services rendered of at least $2,000 from, a bridge club located within the geographical boundaries of the Unit (provided that compensation for directing Unit games, Grand National Teams games, North American Pairs games and other Unit sponsored games held at clubs shall be excluded for this purpose).
The new proposed language -
Section 6.4 Number and Qualifications. The Board shall consist of nine (9) members. All directors must be, and must have been for at least 180 days prior to their election, members in good standing of the ACBL and the Unit. No member shall be eligible for election as a director who, at the time of the election owns, or within the preceding 12 months owned, an interest in, a bridge club located within the geographical boundaries of the Unit.
In order to make changes to the bylaws, a quorum of 50 Unit members in good standing must be present to vote. A majority vote of the members in good standing present is binding on the Unit. No proxy votes are permitted. Please make plans to attend the Unit's Annual meeting.
