OMVNA Leadership Meeting January 22, 2024

To all Old Mountain View residents and property owners,

The Old Mountain View Neighborhood Association (OMVNA) will hold its first meeting of 2024 on Monday, January 22, 2024 at 7:30PM on Zoom.

All Old Mountain View residents and property owners are invited to attend.

As noted at he General Annual Meeting in December 2023, this will be a meeting where the residents and property owners will vote on amendments to the bylaws. The key purpose of the amendments to provide standing committee chairs and co-chairs a vote at regular (steering committee) meetings. Standing committee chairs and co-chairs often so as much or more work to support OMVNA as steering committee members, hence the proposed amendments. I have included the text of the amendments below. They are also available on the website

All residents and property owners who are 16 or older are invited to vote. A quorum of 15 voting members must participate for the vote to be binding. We will do the voting early in the meeting, so voting members who do not want to stay for the whole meeting can leave early.

This will also be a regular steering committee meeting. You are invited to propose additional agenda items. Please send me additional agenda items by Friday, January 19, at 5PM.

The meeting will be held on Zoom. Registration information is given below. Thanks to our Newsletter Editor Susan Bickford for setting this up.

Proposed Amendments to Bylaws

Posted on November 10, 2023 by OMVNA

These amendments are being presented for approval by the general membership at the 2024 Annual General Meeting or a Special General Meeting in the new year. The new proposed amendments were written to provide more voting voices for business presented at Steering Committee meetings. Additionally, the amendments are written to provide clarity as to who has a vote regarding specific steering committee business. Please see the amendments as presented.

• Standing subcommittees will be established for a specific ongoing purpose by a majority of the steering committee. They may also be disbanded by a majority vote of the steering committee. These are distinct from ad hoc committees, which are established for a specific short-term purpose and disbanded when that purpose is accomplished or abandoned. When any subcommittee is established, a chair or co-chairs for the subcommittee will be approved by the steering committee. Vacancies in the chair or co-chair of any subcommittee may be filled by a vote of the steering committee.

• At steering committee meetings, votes may be taken on items as a part of conducting business. The voting members at will be the steering committee members, standing subcommittee chairs and co-chair and co-chairs. Each voting member will have one vote, regardless of the number of steering committee, standing subcommittee chair or co-chair positions he or she holds. A quorum (which is at least half) of the voting members must be present to conduct a vote.

• All members of all subcommittees, whether standing or ad hoc, including the chair and co-chair, will serve without compensation.

• All decisions on allocation of funds at a steering committee meeting must be approved by a majority of the voting members.
