D. Action without meeting--email to ExComm list can constitute 'written consent'.

Peter Kuhn moved as follows: Electronic communication to of a motion, seconding of a motion, or a vote in favor of a motion, shall be recognized as written consent to that motion. Where two members share an office, the first co-officer to send an email to shall be entitled to provide written consent for both co-officers, unless the other co-officer objects. The record of the motion and the written consent shall include the portion of the electronic communication that provides the consent.

Discussion: ExComm meetings are only scheduled every two weeks, but actions requiring an immediate vote often come up between meetings.

The Bylaws Article III, Section 7 say:

"Any action required or permitted to be taken by the Committee may be taken without a meeting, if all members of the Committee for all positions currently held shall individually or collectively consent in writing to such action. Such written consent or consents shall be filed with the minutes of the proceedings of the committee. Such action by written consent shall have the same force and effect as the unanimous vote of such members."

This rule clarifies that emails to the ExCom discussion list are recognized as written consent under the club Bylaws. David Fraser seconded, passed unanimously.

E. Donation of Lidos

Michael Scalet moved to donate two Lidos to the Donner Lake sailing program (fellow DBW aquatic center/ community sailing program) so as to get more room in yard by removing boats which are rarely sailed, with the stipulation that the co-1st Vices are to decide which boats and what equipment will be donated. Rob Miller seconded, passed unanimously.

F. Purchase of Personal Flotation Devices (aka lifejackets)

Michael Scalet moved to spend up to $1,000 to purchase more PFD's, Rob Miller seconded, passed unanimously.

G. Adjournment

Michael Scalet moved to adjourn, Rob Miller seconded, passed unanimously.
