“Pre-org” Bylaws Workgroup
After our meet and greet on Saturday, we’ll be holding a workgroup to go over our bylaws in advance of re-org so we have a chance as a group to discuss what worked well over the last year, what didn’t, and what changes we can make to improve. A little advanced planning can make our re-organization meeting go much smoother.
We’ll be going over the entire bylaws in one fell swoop, so to user our time most efficiently, please make sure you come prepared. You can find our bylaws on our Documents page under the Your District menu on our website. If you’re not a rules wonk, feel free to come and ask questions and learn more. While everyone is welcome to join in the discussion, in Washington State, the state party bylaws restrict voting on bylaws to PCOs only, so naturally the focus will be on getting as many incoming elected PCOs participating as possible.
Hope to see you there!

There was one amendment passed that didn’t get updated in the copy that is online:
Section 3.04.03 – Referral to Membership
At the discretion of the Chair, requests to obtain the membership list may be referred for approval or rejection by a vote of the membership at the next meeting. The Chair shall provide notice to the requester and the membership providing justification for the referral.
