Our 15 October membership meeting  
Urgent call to attend Zoom meeting

Chapter members, please join us for an important general membership meeting on Zoom this Thursday, 15 October at 7:30 pm.  The Zoom logon information will be sent to the membership by Minuteman email.  

Our main business will be ratifying a new chapter bylaws that has been updated from the 1993 version.  Our board of directors has approved a revised draft of chapter bylaws—the first revision since the December 1993 version, which is now out of date and is inconsistent with some provisions of the current national VVA bylaws.  We need to have 10% of our current membership for a quorum to ratify the new chapter bylaws.  

The major revisions in the new draft are:  

—expanding the chapter board from the current 15 directors to as many as     
20 directors;
—changing the quorum to 5% instead of 10%;
—enlarging the board executive committee to 5 members from the current 4 members; 
—establishing the AVVA representative as a non-voting board member;
—mentioning our updated communications media to include today’s digital technology.  

Please take the time to read in the Minuteman email the roughly 3- page bylaws draft, which was put together by past chapter president Bruce Waxman.  We all are grateful for Bruce’s dedication to the effort.

Our featured speaker for the meeting is Dr. Boyd Jones, a chapter member, who will discuss his Vietnam tour in 1970-71 as an industrial site commander in the Central Highlands.  In all, Boyd spent more than 10 years in command of Army engineer units, ranging upward in size to almost 4000 soldiers, third-country nationals, and civilians during combat operations, the Cold War, and in areas threatened by terrorist attacks in Asia, Europe, and the US.  He earned his doctorate degree at the George Mason University School of Public Policy in organizational informatics.  He now teaches at Catholic University of America and serves as a consultant for the Institute for Defense Analysis and American Council on Education.
