Annual Membership Meeting

Proposed Bylaws & Call for Nominations

June 22, 2024 11:30a-2:30p (hybrid)

In conjunction with Region II Online Conference

Dear {Contact_First_Name} {Contact_Last_Name},

Mark your calendars, our annual membership meeting is Saturday, June 22, 11:30a - 2:30p on Zoom or in Richmond as a hybrid meeting.  On the agenda are elections of officers and bylaws revisions. We hope to see you there and get your input as a member of VRID!  

Officer nominations: vridpres@gmail.com

Registration: https://www.vrid.org/event-5658809

Bylaws: Our current Bylaws have been in place since 2013 and we welcome your feedback on their revision.  As a volunteer organization, the current structure of VRID is not proving effective.  As an alternative, the current board proposes a structure that resembles "flat" organizational leadership instead of hierarchical.  

Please take time to review the current bylaws from 2013 (VRID Bylaws 0613.pdf) and the proposed new bylaws (Proposed VRID Bylaws.docx)


If you have suggestions for additional items you want to see on the agenda, we encourage you to sent them to vridsec@gmail.com
