Bylaws Amendment vOTEs BEING COUNTED

Members asked to consider membership requirements

At the IIACNY Legislative Breakfast on November 15th, IIACNY members were asked to vote on a bylaws amendment related to membership requirements.  The proposed amendment would allow IIACNY's membership requirements to be identical to the membership requirements of Big I New York.  Please read below for more details:

Notice of Proposed Amendments to the
Bylaws of the Independent Insurance Agents of Central New York
(To be presented for a vote at the Membership Meeting on 11/15/17)
The Board of Directors of the Association has determined that it is in the best interests of the Association to recommend an amendment to the Association's By-laws to reflect current practices and to allow continued coextensive membership with Big I New York. The proposed changes are summarized below and will allow for the IIACNY definition of voting member to match the definition of Big I New York voting member.
NEW SECTION: MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS - AGREEMENT WITH
BIG I NEW YORK BYLAWS REGARDING QUALIFYING AS A VOTING MEMBER
Regardless of any other provision of these Bylaws which can be construed to the contrary, it is provided that the qualifications of what is required to properly be considered a Voting Member of the Association be deemed to be identical to such requirements as are set forth in the Bylaws of Big I New York, Inc. ("Big I NY"), as may be amended from time to time. It is required that these By-laws adopt the precise standards defining a Voting Member as set forth in Big I NY's By-laws, and the By-laws of the Association will be construed to track and comport with any amendments of Big I NY's By-laws which concern the definition of a Voting Member, or the qualifications required to be deemed to be a Voting Member of the Association. Further, and irrespective of any other provision contained in these By-laws, it is the express intention of the Association that the policies adopted by the Big I NY Board, as changed from time to time, concerning what constitutes a "portion" of the ownership of expirations and renewals required to be a Voting Member of Big I NY, shall automatically be deemed to apply to these By-laws, and any such Big I NY requirements shall be a pre-requisite for a Voting Member to be in good standing with the Association.
