Further, that supporters of the NYMSTF may seek membership by making an inquiry of any officer. Those whose votes do not carry may solicit membership after 1 year.
Further, that all those who are voting members prior to this resolution retain their voting member status.
Further, that those who do not attend a meeting for 9 consecutive months will be considered to have resigned their membership. Members in such standing will be given notice by e-mail and given 1 month to appeal or restore their membership.
Further, that the above membership guidelines be posted on the public area of the forum.
Who are the officers and directors-at-large?
That the bylaws for the 501(c)3 following contain this language:
The board of directors will include the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer (hereafter "The Officers"), and up to 6 other directors-at-large. The Officers are elected by the membership in November for a one-year term. Directors-at-large may be nominated by 1 officer and carried by majority vote of officers at a time determined by the officers for a one-year term.
