The Board of Directors of Lions Clubs International approved revised Model Constitution and Bylaws (CBL) for all Lions Districts worldwide, to be effective July 1, 2016. Many provisions included are designated as mandatory, and must be incorporated into the CBL of each District.
District C has previously adopted Article XI, § 2, and Article IIBL, § 2, to the District C CBL. Each includes the following provision:
Section 2. AUTOMATIC UPDATE. When amendments to the International Constitution and By-Laws are passed at the International Convention, any amendments that would have an effect on this District Constitution and By-Laws shall automatically be updated in this district constitution and bylaws at the close of the convention.
The most consequential changes to the District C CBL involve:
The Financial Review committee was tasked with documenting the processes that we use to conduct our financial business. This was brought forward as the first chapter in a District 19C Policy Manual.
Though the Policy Manual was accepted and institued at the cabinet meeting last fall, a few By-Law changes are needed to recognize and not duplicate what is now in the Policy Manual.
These changes will be voted on at the Spring Convention on April 28th, 2018 in Bremerton, WA.
You will have the opportunity to vote on the approval of these changes at the District Convention, April 1, 2017, in Olympia.
