Proposed By-Law Amendments

27 Jan 2013 11:59 AM | Lusty Cebula (Administrator)
The Michigan Rifle and Pistol Association Board of Directors has discussed and approved the following Amendments to the Association By-Laws.  

The rationale behind the changes, which would be considered minor, are to provide the Secretary sufficient time to prepare the annual report, including taxes, and to codify a practice to allow life memberships for affiliates.   

Please take a moment to read them over, and be prepared to vote on their adoption during the 2013 Annual Membership Meeting on March 10, 2013.
