  Each newly elected Delegate shall begin as an Alternate-Delegate, and shall not be a Full Delegate until (s)he is among the 5 most senior Delegates - as judged by years served in longevity. 


   








Green Plan






(Preliminary ideas from research by John Kuo) -
Changes to the By Laws are needed to clarify our GDA Delegates length of service.

There is a discrepancy between the number of current delegates and alternates and the maximum number years a person can serve. There are currently 9 delegates and alternates. Under the Annual Roll-Up of Delegates a person on the delegation may serve "for a maximum of seven years." This needs to be changed to 9 years.

I think that the way the paragraph is written for the Annual Roll-Up of Delegates, a person can interpret that the maximum number of years a delegate can serve does not prevent the delegate from serving an extra 6 years as Chairman of the delegation.


Annual Roll-Up of Delegates: Each member of the delegation, other than the Chairman, moves up one slot annually so that one alternate delegate is added to the delegation each year. Upon a delegate's or alternate delegate's annual re-election he or she shall roll up one place on the delegation for a maximum of seven (nine) years. Following a delegation roll up, and after serving the maximum number of terms as Chairman, a member must not serve as an alternate or a delegate for one year.


The Eastern District Bylaws elect delegates for three years. The elections are staggered, so that no more than 1/3 of the delegates are replaced. The President serves as Chairman of the delegation.


The Southwestern District Bylaws elect delegates and alternates for a term of 2 years. The Chairman of the delegates is elected by the Executive Council.


Both districts do not set a maximum number of years a person can serve, because they don't have a roll-up of delegates.


They both use this line in their bylaws: "The number of delegates and alternate delegates shall be set according to Article II of the GDA Bylaws."

Hey John
Okay when you get a chance can you put the following statement into fancy bylaw wording so we can vote on it at the next meeting.
We have decided to elect one delegate every year at the Feb meeting.  This delegate will enter into a 10 year rotation the first 5 being as an alternate and the final 5 being as a delegate.  A chairman will be elected every 3 years for only a single 3 year term.  They will be allowed to stay on the delegation longer than 10 years in order to continue out their term.  Should someone not be able to complete their term the rotation will move forward and someone will be elected to take their position at the bottom of the rotation (thus having another 10 year term)  Since you have a copy of the bylaws just make it sound like that.  If this is not clear please let me know if you have any questions.  I would like to have it by Tuesday evening at 7 if possible!  I know that's not alot of time but just let me know if that's too soon.
