New Beginnings Party Well Attended and Changes to Bylaws Approved

CVA President Cynthia Wood Presides over the CVA Annual Meeting

A big THANK YOU to Richard & Deborah McClintock for hosting the New Beginnings Party last Sunday, January 20, 2019.

The party also served as the Annual Membership Meeting. On a motion by Tom Dennsion, seconded by Ursula Burgess, the members present voted unanimously to approve the changes to the CVA Bylaws as recommended by the Board of Trustees. Consistent with the newly approved Bylaws, the members unanimously reelected the current Officers and Board of Trustees for the new fiscal year of 2019, on a motion by Shirley Blackwell, seconded by Deborah McClintock.

The current Officers and Trustees are listed elsewhere in the email, and the new Bylaws are available on this website by clicking the "CVA Bylaws" link on the right hand column under "Other CVA Pages." You can also download a PDF version of the Bylaws by clicking this Link: CVA Bylaws.
