Proposed amendments removed

There has been much discussion and review of feedback, which included valid concerns, based on an email sent last month that included a detailed explanation of proposed Constitution & Bylaws (C&B) Changes #1 and #3 that were published in the June edition of the JCR. Your Board of Directors has now voted to remove these two proposed amendments from consideration for your vote at the August 2021 Business Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Per NCRA’s official Professional Registered Parliamentarian, the Board with a majority vote can withdraw those amendments, based on page 295 in Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR), which states: “before a motion has been stated by the chair, it is the property of the mover (the board), who can withdraw it or modify it without asking the consent of anyone.”

Your NCRA Board of Directors understands the importance of listening to the membership and making decisions that are in the best interests of everyone, and we thank each of you for your important input and feedback as we together move the mission of the Association forward.

Please remember that the August Board of Directors meeting is open to all members to observe, and we encourage everyone to attend. A registration email will go out ahead of time for you to be able to register to receive the link to view the meeting.

 Also, please note that all properly proposed amendments will be under consideration for your vote and ultimate decision at the August 2021 Annual Business Meeting in Las Vegas.

 As this is probably my last message to you as NCRA President, it has been my great honor and privilege to serve you this term. I wish each of you the best in our “new normal.” Continue to stay positive in mind and spirit in all that you do, and good things will find their way to you.

Max Curry, RPR, CRI, LCR, B.C.R.

NCRA President
