The Annual Meeting of the Houston Astronomical Society is scheduled for December 5, 2014 at the University of Houston. See the web site (www.astronomyhouston.org) or the GuideStar (newsletter) for details.
There are two items that will be presented to the membership for a vote at this meeting:
- Revisions to the bylaws of the Houston Astronomical Society
- Election of Officers, Board Members, and Committee Leaders
Without having passed the revisions to the bylaws, the Society is operating under the current bylaws which requires 15% of the membership to be present to have a vote. At our current membership level, it takes 72 members present to have a quorum.
If a quorum is not present at the December meeting the votes will be deferred to the January, 2015 meeting or to the first meeting after that with sufficient members present to comprise a quorum.from Bill Pellerin, HAS President, email to the membership, 11/18/2014.
