After 10 years Hive13 leadership finally has had a Lawyer review and update Hive13 bylaws.
Hive13 Leadership requests your support in approving the changes as presented.
The legal review brought many minor wording and clarification changes to the bylaws making them consistent and compliant with legal standards.
The following notable changes were made:
· The separate membership and warden addendums have been combined into the bylaws.
· Member rights added a linked complementary ‘family’ membership. This ratifies and makes public a long standing Hive13 practice.
· Assured the bylaws comply with US and Ohio law.
· Require the support of five (5) members to propose a bylaw revision. In July 2019 there were fifteen often conflicting revisions submitted. We feel a speed bump is warranted.
This task would have been impossible without the Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio, a non-profit organization that has donated free legal advice to over 200 other 501(c)3 non-profit organizations like Hive13. Find out more about Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio here pbpoh.org.
The PBPOH volunteer Lawyers who gave generously of their time are: Richard DiPaolo, Joseph Dehner, Ralph Skilken and Marcie Hunnicutt. Our grateful thanks go out to them and pbpoh.org.
This has been a lot of work. Please let us know what you think.
