ORIGINAL POST: Nov 11, 2013 @ 13:35 PRESERVED BELOW – 

On November 7, 2013 the Executive Board endorsed what should be viewed as the 2nd phase of revisions to the organization’s By-Laws after changing its name to Santa Barbara Apple Users Group in October 2012.  It is the belief of the Executive Board that the proposed revisions better reflect the current organizational purpose, structure and clarify certain statements or requirements.

In accordance with Article VIII: Amendments To By-Laws. Section 8.0.1 of the current By-Laws,  this webpage serves as part of the required “Notice” to the general membership at least 15 days prior to an upcoming vote to approve the By-Laws as revised.  This ‘Notice’ accompanied by the documents identified and linked below reflect the changes to the By-Laws that are being contemplated [recommended].
