    Work Sessions

    Is there something that says that Board Memebers can't come together and simply discuss topics and it's history?

Thanks
  9. We are meeting to change by-laws. One of by-laws calls for: "The regular meetings of the members shall be held at a location to be designated by the President the first Monday of each month" He wants to change it to read: "The regular meetings...shall be held at a public location and time designated by the president" Does that sound fishy?
