General Meeting – IMBA Chapter Proposal
IMBA CHAPTER VOTE CANCELED
Recent discussions among the board require us to table plans to become an IMBA Chapter for the foreseeable future. There will be NO VOTE and NO MEETING held Monday, May 13. Sorry for the confusion.
MEMBERSHIP VOTE MEETING
MONDAY MAY 13, 6:30PM @ Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service - 45 Duplainville Rd, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
SMBA is holding a meeting for all members to vote on the approval of the IBMA Chapter proposal discussed at the meetings held on 4/16 and 4/17. We will review the presentation given at the previous meetings and then hold a vote by all members present at the meeting. Please note you need to be present at the meeting in order to vote.
This is an extremly important decision for the future of SMBA, whether you are for or against this decision we need you at the meeting to voice your opinion and vote.
If approved this will significantly impact our membership process and dues. More importantly it will allow us to become a full non-profit charitable orgainization with full 501(C)(3) tax status, allowing tax deductible donations and opens the opportunity to apply for trail building grants.
Thanks to all that came out to our meetings last week. Based on feedback at the meetings, SMBA will be holding one more meeting to review the IMBA Chapter presenation and then hold a vote on whether to persue the Chapter program. The meeting date and location are TBD, stay tuned for more info. In the mean time the slides from the presentation from last week’s meetings can be seen HERE.
On April 16th and 17th SMBA will hold membership meetings to distribute information detailing the current proposal for SMBA to become an IMBA Chapter. Both meetings will present the same content however they are in different locations and different days to help accommodate members schedules. Read ahead information is availble in the links below. Each meeting will include a presentation and a question and answer session. Your comments and feedback are encouraged at these important meetings.
