Dear Fellow BIMC Members:
writing regarding proposed revisions to the BIMC's Articles of Incorporation and
By-Laws. As they stand now, the Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws have
generally served the BIMC well over the years.
But, as recently noticed by many BIMC members, both documents
are in need of some revisions in order to have them comply with Washington state
statutes and to make them more consistent with the BIMC's makeup and
just one example, the BJMC's Articles of Incorporation were filed in 1961 under RCW
24.04, Washington's non-profit corporation act then in effect. RCW 24.04 was
repealed in 1969. Since RCW 24.04, is no longer in effect. the BIMC should
update the Articles of Incorporation and
By-Laws to ensure they are in compliance with RCW 24.03, the existing Washington
Non-Profit Corporation Act.
Board of Governors has undertaken a thorough review the Articles of
Incorporation and By-Laws in recent months and settled upon a few proposed
changes that we think would best serve the BIMC. The Board has
unanimously adopted each of the proposed amendments to the Articles of
Incorporation and By-Laws. The proposed revisions will now he presented to the
membership for a vote at this July's annual meeting.
in your annual meeting packet are (i) the resolution that the Board passed
regarding amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws; (ii) Exhibit
A, amendments to the Articles of Incorporation; (iii) Exhibit B, amendments to
the By-Laws; (iv) Exhibit C, a revised
version of the By-Laws incorporating each of the proposed amendments; and (v) a redline
version of the By-Laws which identifies and incorporates each of the amendments
to the By-Laws.
take some time to examine these documents and consider the possible revisions so
that you are familiar with them prior to the annual meeting. If you have
any questions about the proposed changes
orjust want to talk more about the BIMC's governing documents, please email
or call me at (360)375-6555 any
Thank you. I look forward
to seeing everyone at this year's annual meeting.
