Cal South Board Conducts Extensive Review of Bylaws
At the June 5, 2010, Board meeting, the Cal South Board of Directors initiated a comprehensive review of the organization's bylaws in an effort to ensure that Cal South, under its status as a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, is operating fully in accordance with the current California Corporations Code. The bylaws of an organization are a critical governing document intended to outline an organization's basic structure, voting rights, the powers of its directors, and most importantly, what comprises "membership" within that organization.

"It was time for an exhaustive review, which is very often something that is easy for an organization to put off. There have been new revisions to the Corporations Code and we wanted to ensure that our legal counsel did a full review," stated Cal South President, Johnnie Garza. "Outside of the legal aspects, there were other elements we wanted to take a closer look at as well. We are a membership-based organization, and we wanted that to be clearly established very early on in the document. People want to know who our members are, how you become a member, and who gets to vote. We have outlined that with much greater clarity within our revisions, and we think it will be a welcome change."

The Cal South Board of Directors will finalize the revisions at the December Board Meeting with the actual adoption being voted upon by the credentialed affiliate members at the Cal South Annual General Meeting on February 13, 2011.
