The Section has begun the process of adopting a new Charter, new Bylaws, and Procedures. As a part of ITE’s One ITE initiative all of the Districts, Chapters, and Sections are adopting new formation documents to provide for a more consistent membership experience across all of ITE. The Section Board has reviewed the draft model Charter and Bylaws and submitted our comments to ITE. The ITE International Board will be adopting the model Charter and Bylaws at their meeting in early November.
Following adoption of the models, we will work with the Western District Board to adopt our new Charter and the Section Board will adopt the new Bylaws and Procedures. The time frame for adoption and approval of the Charter and Bylaws by the Western District Board is June 2020 and they will go into effect on January 1, 2021. The Procedures will only need to be adopted by the Section Board. At this point we do not expect that the Central Coast Section will have to run things much differently than we have been for years.
As always, if you are interested in more information let me know.
