  1. In an organization I am a member of and chair of the bylaws committee, our bylaws stipulate: “These Bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the voting eligible Members present at any regular meeting after such amendments have been read at a previous meeting and a copy sent to each member household in writing via US Postal Service or electronic mailing at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting at which said amendments shall be considered.” Note that prior to presenting a motion to adopt amendments to our bylaws, the proposed amendments must be read (intent is verbal reading) at a previous meeting. This requirement is becoming more and more tedious to our membership and it is considered more desirable to amend this “verbal reading” requirement to sending the proposed amendments to the membership in writing prior to the meeting where voting on the amendment will take place. My thought is that this could be accomplished by a proposed amendment stating: “These Bylaws may be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the voting eligible Members present at any regular meeting after prior notice of such amendments have been sent to each membership household in writing via US Postal Service or electronic mailing at least thirty (30) days prior and a second time at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting at which said amendments shall be considered.” Since there appears to be no RONR requirement for an actual “verbal reading” prior to presenting amendments for vote, would the above wording be appropriate?
