- There was no agenda for this meeting for the following reason:
- The initial goal was to generate action plan for the Communications and Blight groups in that order. However, the By-Laws state “Each committee is responsible for framing the respective committee’s roles and responsibilities within the given goal area…” (Art IV, Sec 2); thereby making this course of action and the associated process, prohibited.
- After discussion, President Chris Frye employed Art IV, Sec 4 of the FNU By-Laws and formed the Operations Ad-Hoc Committee and charged the committee with reviewing FNU’s By-Laws line–by-line and making a recommendation back to the full group. The recommendation should encompass all the amendments that need to be made to the current By-Laws as adopted 5 Oct 2013.
