NOTICE TO MEMBERS
This letter serves as notice to members that on 1/8/2020, the ACT Lawrence Board of Directors voted unanimously to amend the articles of organization. There is a language inconsistency between the Articles and bylaws. We are doing this to fix that language and avoid future inconsistencies by having everything in one place:
To remove the provisions applicable to indemnification of officers, employees, directors and other agents of the corporation and to replace that language with the following:
Indemnification of officers, directors, employees and other agents of the corporation shall be as specified in the bylaws of the corporation as may be amended from time to time.
A full copy of the updated bylaws is available in our office or to download on our website and in this link: here

The candidates are: Frank Espaillat, Luis Saenz de Viguera Erkiaga, Elizabeth Lavasta, Maria Medina, Jonathan Pearlson, Denise Olivares, Henry Och, Rosa Maldonado.
You will also vote on the Board of Directors recommendation to update our bylaws. There are a number of updates, including allowing the Board to amend the bylaws as needed in the future (with advance notice to our members and opportunity to object), clarifying the length of the terms of service for officers and members of the Board, updating the notice provisions to make communication with members easier, and placing an officers and directors indemnification by ACT Lawrence in the bylaws.
A full copy of the proposed updated bylaws is available to download here or in person at our office.
Thanks – again, we look forward to seeing you and your families at the Annual Members Meeting & Community Holiday Party!
