The Board of Directors has recommended a change to the Club Bylaws, pertaining to the election of the Nominating Committee. The proposed amendment will be voted on at the Sept. 5 Rotary meeting.
 
The bylaws state "The By-Laws of the Club may be amended at any regular meeting, a quorum being present [60 or more members], by a two-thirds vote of all members present, provided, however, that such proposed amendment shall be offered at a meeting at least two weeks preceding the vote upon the same and that a written or printed copy of the proposed amendment, with notice of the time and date of voting, shall have been mailed or emailed to each member at least one week before the meeting at which the vote shall be taken."
 
The suggested change is as follows:
