Term Limits Removal Amendment

The Term Limits Removal Amendment was proposed in writing as shown below:

The December 4th First Friday Coffee will also be a brief Special Meeting of Le Monde Parents. The Governance Committee has discussed how to deal with our association consistently having few nominees for the Council (i.e., Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary), and the Governance Committee has decided to propose an amendment to Section 4 of Article IV of the Le Monde Parents Policies and Procedures (see below), so that it will be possible for C. David Maxey to help our association avoid Council vacancy by serving another term. The amendment will be officially proposed in writing on December 4th, and it will be voted on at the next meeting in January.

Article IV. Section 4. Terms of Office. Council members are elected for one year (term starts September 1st and ends August 31st) and may serve no more than two (2) consecutive terms in the same office. Each person elected shall hold only one office at a time. From the date the election results are announced until the official start of the term, the members of the outgoing Council shall train and mentor the members of the incoming Council.

Adjourn Le Monde Parents’ business.


C. David Maxey, Chair; Phil Duong, Vice-Chair; Kristen Meyers, Secretary
