Three-Year Terms Proposed for Directors
As the Lake Forest Board of Directors works to keep residents informed of possible updates to our documents and policies, we publish for public comment proposed changes that have been recommended by the Governing Documents Committee.
This proposed By-Laws change focuses on Section 6.2, and if approved by the Board, would take effect with the next election cycle. It involves only term length and limits, and is not related to the number of potential seats open in the next election.
It is anticipated the Board will consider this measure at its Nov. 18 meeting.
The amendment would:
• Reduce the terms of office for Directors from five years to three years;
• Limit Directors to two consecutive terms; and
• Make a Director ineligible for re-election for three years immediately following a second consecutive term.
Please review the proposed amendment and comment if you wish. Send comments to Communications Committee Chairman Dale McGinnis @ firstname.lastname@example.org or speak about the proposal at the Oct. 28 Board meeting.
The original By-Law section and the proposed changes appear below.
Section 6.2 Term of Office. The term of office for Directors shall be for a five-year period, commencing with their election at the Annual Meeting of the members. Any Director appointed to fill a vacancy on the Board of Directors shall serve until the next Annual Meeting of the Association, at which time that Director may be elected to serve a full term of five years without restrictions. Any director may serve consecutive five-year terms.
Section 6.2TERM OF OFFICE AND RE-ELECTION. The term of office for Directors shall be for a three-year period, commencing with their election at the Annual Meeting of the members. Any Director appointed to fill a vacancy on the Board of Directors shall serve only until the next Annual Meeting of the Association.
