    At a recent THSOA Houston Board meeting, a proposal was motioned and seconded in order to put the motion to the entire Membership. The subject motion was to recommend the position of Past Chairperson be dissolved and the position of Vice Chairperson be introduced. Essentially, the motion is to discontinue the Board position of Past Chair which has traditionally been the second year of service for a Chairperson.
     
    It is therefore proposed to the Houston Chapter Membership, that on January 10, 2011 a Chairperson (1 year) AND a Vice Chairperson shall both be elected from nominations on the floor. This new board position of Vice Chairperson shall be for a service of two (2) years – year (1) service as Vice Chairperson and year (2) of service automatically becoming the Chairperson (subject to membership approval at each AGM).
     
    Thereafter, each year at the January AGM a new Vice Chairperson shall be elected for a two (2) year service – the 1st year as Vice Chairperson and the 2nd year as Chairperson. The position of past Chair shall be dissolved at the AGM January 2012.
     
    A draft set of amended Houston Bye-Laws will be provisioned to the Membership prior to the January 2011, AGM.
     
    This draft will also incorporate the necessary adjustments now the THSOA Houston Chapter is an IRS 501(c)(3) “Public Charity” making us exempt from Federal income tax and where your gracious contributions to the Chapter are now deductible under Section 170 of the code.
    (See http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p4221pc.pdf).
     
    As always, The Board appreciates your membership and continued participation & contributions and wish you all a very happy, safe, and healthy holiday period.
