1. The proposed Bylaws that are currently up for vote by the Chapter members have been amended. The following language has been added to ARTICLE 4, Section 6(E):
The President, President-Elect, Treasurer and Secretary shall be authorized to provide meeting minutes and/or an adopted Resolution and/or a copy of the Chapter Bylaws to Chase Bank, or any other current banking institution, for the purpose of changing signatories on relevant bank accounts from year to year, after the election and installation of new Chapter officers, and for clarification that for banking purposes, the Chapter is known as IRWA Chapter 57.
The reason for the change is that oftentimes banks change their criteria for allowing account changes. This language permits the incoming officers to provide documents necessary to confirm the validity of the persons seeking to become signatories on the Chapter accounts, as well as to authorize deletion of unnecessary signatories. If you have questions or objections, please let me know.
2. The Joint Appraisal Institute meeting scheduled for April 7, 2021 has been changed to April 21, 2021, due to a conflict.
3. The Region 1 Spring Forum will be held virtually on Saturday, April 10, 2021. This business meeting is open to all IRWA members, at no cost. If you are interested in attending, please reach out to me for more information.
