Suggested Bylaws Changes:
Member Nominations. Regular Members may nominate Representatives to the Board from among themselves. These nominations must be submitted in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation at least sixty (current bylaws say 30 days) days prior to the Annual Meeting or made from the floor at the Annual Meeting.
Term Limits. Trustees shall serve a maximum of three consecutive two-year terms. If a Trustee wishes to return to board service after serving three consecutive terms, that person may seek nomination again after waiting one year from the end of their last term, and if elected may serve an additional term.

The NWCLTC is able to put these events together and further our pilot programs of mentorship and peer support through two terrific sponsors; JP Morgan Chase and Banner Bank have extended their Gathering sponsorship to cover these meetings and operational expenses this year, even without our regular event! It is these ongoing partnerships that facilitate stronger Community Land Trusts throughout our Region!!!
Thank you again, Banner Bank and JP Morgan Chase Bank!!!
