Chapter Bylaws Updates

This is the text of a letter emailed last week to chapters, reminding officers of the need to ensure chapter bylaws are up-to-date, and offering a template. [Editor's note: we have redacted the email addresses in the letter. The Policy File Committee web page has contact information for committee members.]

To: CSUEU Board of Directors, Chapter Vice Presidents, Chapter Secretaries
From: Christine Thomas, Policy File Committee Chair
Subject: Chapter Bylaws Updates
Date: May 12, 2009

At the November 2008 CSUEU Board meeting, the Policy File Committee reminded the members of the Board that chapters needed to review and update their current chapter bylaws. A number of chapters still have bylaws that do not recognize our incorporation and are not in compliance with the CSUEU Policy File. A template was forwarded to the Board last December.

Since then, the chapters have completed their election process and there are new officers in place at many chapters. Additionally, the Policy File Committee met recently and updated the chapter bylaws template to include appropriate language for chapter treasurers and the finance section on disbursements since all chapters are now using central accounting.

The new template is attached. Please use it to update your chapter bylaws. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the committee members: Christine Thomas, [redacted], Joan Kennedy, [redacted], Steve Mottaz, [redacted], or Richard Duarte, [redacted]. When you have completed updating your bylaws, please file a copy with Christine Thomas, Chair of the Policy File Committee, Ronnie Grant, Vice-President for Organizing and Malia Plummer at CSUEU headquarters.

Thank you.


Cc: Pat Gantt, CSUEU President
Policy File Committee
