Proposed Bylaw Changes April 2021
As the Tuxedo Park Community Association continues to grow and evolve, the Board of Directors will continue to review and update our bylaws to better serve our Members. 2020 highlighted the need for our Bylaws to embrace alternative means for us to meet and communicate when it’s not safe to do so in person, to capture new volunteers, and to share some of the workload when we can. Our volunteers and volunteer Members of the Board are our most valuable resource—it’s incumbent upon us to make the most of the time they so generously donate to our Community.
The Board of Directors will present the following changes to our Bylaws for the approval of the Membership of the TPCA at our April 8th, 2021 Annual General Meeting.
For clarification, the following changes have been made throughout the Bylaws of the TPCA:
“Members” changed throughout to “Members of the Association”
“The Board” changed throughout to “The Board of Directors”

The nominee must be interviewed by at least one sitting Director of the Board, attend a general meeting of The Board, and be voted in by The Board.
