The May meeting of the Lee’s Summit Woodworkers guild had another excellent turn out with over 60 members in the room and another 4 joining remotely via Zoom.
Roy Wall, Guild president, briefed the membership that the board of directors authorized the purchase of a new web domain for the Guild website so that the Guild could create their own account with GoDaddy and assume control of the Guild Website.
Randy Stone, Board Member, presented to the membership several changes to the Guild bylaws recommended by the Guild Board of Directors. The changes brought the bylaws in line with the Guild’s Articles of incorporation with the State of Missouri and adjusted the language around dues and meeting schedules to allow for greater flexibility. The changes were voted on and approved by the Guild membership and can be found under the members only section of the Guild website.
