Proposed WNA Bylaws To Be Voted On May 13, 2020

Click here: Woodstock-BYLAWS v2 191121 

At the end of 2018, the WNA board voted unanimously to create a subcommittee to investigate and make recommendations for our organizational structure status, named the Organizational Structure of the WNA committee. The committee, open to all board and general members, came to the consensus that the federal 501(c)3 non-profit status would fit the needs and future goals of the WNA board. The committee presented their finding of pursuing 501(c)3 status to the board, and the board voted to move forward with the 501(c)3 status. The committee met twice monthly for over a year, reviewing the lengthy and detailed documentation and legal requirements of the IRS. The committee recommended (and the board approved) submitting the final draft application (including the bylaws and articles of incorporation) to a local attorney office specializing in non-profit law (The Center for Non-Profit Law). The attorney’s office determined we qualified for the IRS “short form.” They also determined our bylaws as they stood were not in compliance with IRS regulations, and recommended we start anew over line-item editing, which is what the committee elected to pursue.

Above are the bylaws that have been edited by our attorney for submittal to the IRS for  consideration for 501(c)3 status.

    How do I get the link for the Zoom meetings? I just moved into the neighborhood a couple of months ago, and trying to get connected. I did just sign up for the newsletter, but don’t see any info on how to attend meetings virtually via Zoom.

      Hello Christy,

      I’m sorry I did not see your message prior to last week’s meeting. I have now updated the website with the links for our monthly general and Board of Directors meetings. Tonight the Board of Directors meet at 7 pm via Zoom and that is a public meeting. You are welcome to pop in to say hi or see what we’re up to this month! It’s usually a smallish group, (10 or so) and fairly casual. If you just want to call in and listen, that would also be just fine! If you are following us on Facebook, we are very active there (Woodstock Neighborhood Association is the name of the page) and we do post the links to meetings as well. Thank you for your interest! – Anne Marie Anderson, Communications Chair
