By-Laws Change Comments

Last week we let you know that we are entertaining an idea that would change the membership requirements to include Villages residents who are not residents of the Village of Belvedere.

Too view some of the comments we have received to date click on the “Documents” link under “Pages” in the right margin.

If you would like a copy of the by-laws, you can get it in a variety of formats using the “Club By-laws” link under “Pages” in the right margin.

Don’t forget, we will be having an open discussion of this idea at our Meeting on May 10th at Laurel Manor to get your input.

If you will not be attending the meeting or you want to comment beforehand, you can contact the President, Jaye Wolfe by email at jaye@jayewolfe.com.

Thanks for your thoughtful input,
The Board
