2022 Official Motion

In addition to voting for this year’s Board of Directors, the IVCanDO Board is proposing an update of our Bylaws.

The IVCanDO Board of Directors proposes to discontinue operating as a membership organization for several reasons:

  • Membership has dwindled from several hundred to less than two dozen.
  • The rights of IVCanDO members are identical to those of any Illinois Valley resident to attend our Board meetings, offer ideas as to how best to operate or to volunteer in programs.
  • Regular board meetings are open to the public. Email info@ivcdo.org to attend virtual board meetings.
  • Voters for new and continuing board members have historically approved every candidate.
  • The staff of IVCanDO will prioritize efforts to inform the public of our activities and programs through current media efforts, our website, facebook page, newspaper articles and KXCJ announcements.

If the motion to end General Memberships is approved, the Board of Directors will be responsible to appoint new board members as vacancies or term limits arise.
