Re: [m-hb] MIT Constitution of 2018 Draft

Good job, folks!   I approve of most of the changes, but I think we need to fix the constitution to make sure it is never a problem that some stickler tells us a busy MIT student doesn't technically qualify.  In a recent iteration, it was having rung with us once, and we had to stretch that to include the occasional person who had signed up but not yet turned up.  It is definitely critically important that we be able to include people who ring with us at East Hill Farm once a year.  How about "have rung with us once" plus some weasel words to the effect that membership standards may be relaxed for current MIT students.  Possibly "at the discretion of the Keeper of the Handbells, Ringing Master, President or Treasurer"

Sorry for the format--phone.

Good morning everyone!

Sorry to intrude your morning at Orleans, or your morning at home, whatever may be. 

The committee to discuss and revise the M.I.T. Guild of Bell Ringers Constitution is complete! The draft version of this document is attached. Please look over it. At the end of the document, there is a "change log" of a sort of what we have generally changed.

Because we have published this draft as of today and it is up for discussion, the polls to approve and deny this version of the constitution will be open June 23rd, Sat. At that time, we will send a simple online poll. If 2/3 majority approves, this is our new constitution. If not, we'll try to accommodate the opposed.

For your information, those on this committee were Joshua Burson, Bryn Reinstadler, and myself. We're available to talk if you have questions, comments, or concerns.

Thanks and enjoy!
