While it’s true that KDOC’s current constitution and bylaws don’t cover every eventuality, they’ve served for 30 years without–as far as I know–any major changes. I think that’s because they are simple and most members don’t want to spend a lot of time making up rules for other people to follow. When the club has needed to change a policy or procedure, they have just fixed the specific thing and moved along. Given the 13 page recent revision of the proposed new constitution/bylaws I see endless, not to mention fascinating discussions of crucial points like who should order club supplies or whether the newsletter editor should be impeached for failing to include a recipe in the most recent issue. Oops, that’s another thing! The officers/directors forgot to spell out the procedure for impeachment for failing to follow the rules. Doggone! Back to the drawing board. Oh well, that’s what happens when you try to fix what ain’t broke. By the way, I am aware of the time the officers and directors have spent on this project. I think it would have been a good idea to ask the membership if they wanted a new constitution before starting one.
