New Bylaws

This post, along with the official posting in the CVAAS event calendar, serves notice to the CVAAS membership of the intent to adopt new bylaws.

You may view these proposed bylaws on our public folder located here.

Details:

CVAAS has attempted to become a nonprofit organization in the past.  As part of our application, we submitted a set of bylaws that were refused for not meeting California guidelines for bylaws.  As part of that refusal, the CVAAS application for non-profit status was delayed.

We have since cleared the delay, and have received our official refusal letter which indicated the changes required to meet nonprofit requirements.

Since the CVAAS bylaws needed to be modified, we also took the opportunity to update those bylaws to better reflect our operations, and to allow room for future growth.

The CVAAS Board of Directors along with interested members have been working on these bylaws since October 2016.  In accordance with nonprofit law, these bylaws are now submitted for viewing by the membership.

Members in good standing with CVAAS have the right to vote on the acceptance of these bylaws when they are presented at our monthly business meeting on March 5th, 2017.  

Once accepted, CVAAS will submit our final nonprofit application to the IRS.
