President Wm Shrewsbury has been requested to conduct an official email ballot according to the guidelines established in Act 06-183 Mail Ballots (4-7-01, 8-24-68, 11-16-68) after four members of the Board requested this action, namely Shrewsbury, Harler, Geisler, and Haun. To be adopted, this Motion by email requires a two-thirds affirmative vote of the entire Board of Governors. The text of any matter that was the subject of a mail ballot, with the vote of each member, will be read into the minutes of the subsequent meeting. Notice of this proposed action will be posted to the Society web site not later than the day following the transmission of the call for the vote.
Shrewsbury moves: The Board of Governors of the National Speleological Society requests a donation of $60,000 from the National Speleological Foundation’s Support Fund. This donation will be used to complete, by 1 September 2015, the new Gurnee Library and the Archives section of our headquarters.
The vote began on 12/18/2014, and the board has until 12/30/14 to vote, after which the results will be published here.
