American Legion Post 55 by-laws changes

Pat Nicholaisen

We are having a change to our By-Laws to change the time and the number for our quorum.

As of December 2014, by unanimous vote of participating members of the general meetings, the following change is to the By-Laws:

Article 8 Section 6 (pg. 12) to read:

The current quorum requirement is 15 members based on paid membership over 125. We are changing it to read eight (8) members shall constitute a quorum. This change is based on the activity of the adult and retirement community of the average age exceeding 50 years of age, in which eight member quorum(s) would be much more obtainable to conduct regular business of the Post.

Any questions or disapproval of this change can be addressed to the Post Commander, Ben Carrillo at James O Schroeder-Post-55, 25601 N. Sun Lakes Blvd., Sun Lakes, AZ 85248.

Our December meeting will be 1700 hours on December 16 (the third Tuesday of the month).

All subsequent meetings will be at 1600 hours on the third Tuesday of the month. We are hoping this change will encourage more members to attend and contribute to our meetings.
