As our club grows and evolves, it’s necessary to modify or change our bylaws.  These changes are presented to and voted on by the AZRATPack Board of Directors.  The following changes have been made to our bylaws:

 ARTICLE III. MEETINGS OF MEMBERS

3.0       Monthly Meetings

Membership meetings are to be held monthly to discuss ideas, concerns and other club related business.  These meetings are held on every last Thursday of the month at a place to be determined by the person designated by the Board of Directors (BOD). To give all members an opportunity to attend, these meetings will be held at locations in what is considered Central Phoenix, East and West Valleys in alternating months.

At these meetings, only full members can bring up, discuss and when appropriate, vote on club business.
