SATURDAY JULY 17, 2021
We hope this message finds you all well and thriving. Members, we need your help! A Special Membership Meeting will be held on Saturday, July 17, 2021, 9:00am, called to approve the proposed amendments to our bylaws and other governing documents (see the PDF files below). This meeting will allow us to move forward with our current pursuit to obtain 501(c)(3) federal non-profit tax exemption status.
The documents were sent to the membership via email on May 24, 2021, but if you did not receive them please let us know so that we can send them to you or please see documents below. This meeting will allow us to move forward with our current pursuit to obtain 501(c)(3) federal non-profit tax exemption status.
To amend our current AHA bylaws, two-thirds of our current membership must be present in order to vote. Due to insufficient attendee numbers at the February 13, 2021 Annual Meeting, a vote on the bylaws and the aforementioned governing documents was unable to take place. For the upcoming meeting, all attendees participating in the vote to amend the bylaws must be paid 2021 AHA members. At the beginning of 2021, it was decided that all 2020 members had their membership automatically extended to June 30, 2021. To be eligible to vote, please renew membership before the meeting.
With deepest thanks,
Association of Hawaiʻi Archivists Board of Directors
