Membership Passes Two Bylaw Changes

By overwhelming margins, the SBCA membership voted to make two changes to the Society’s bylaws. The first approved change, by an 87-0 vote, moves the organization’s fiscal year from the current period of July 1 through June 30 to a (new) period of January 1 through December 31.

The second Bylaw change, by an 84 – 3 vote, changes the individual membership year from a fixed period of January 1 through December 3,1 to a rolling twelve-month period that depends on the date an individual member joins the Society.  Renewals will now be based on the anniversary date of when a member joins the Society.
