Our founding mothers will be departing their formal board duties at the end of 2018, that has us thinking of a way to yet keep their involvement and guidance. As part of the business meeting, members of Connect Buncombe will be asked to approve this addition to our Bylaws:

Article IV – Officers and Board

Proposed amendment is to add the following:

8. Emeritus membership: An honorary membership may be awarded after deliberation and election by the Board of Directors to past or current board members who have significantly and over time contributed to the organization. This membership shall continue until withdrawn by the Board or the individual. Emeritus members enjoy all privileges of Board membership.
