It's warming up! Us Bostonians know to be cautious and call this the "spring
of deception" that precedes the final blizzard, but fingers crossed - good
sailing weather approaches!
The Steering Committee would like to share with you the second draft of the
Boston Blind Sailing Bylaws, attached here. We would like to thank everyone
who participated in giving us feedback and helped us make this a more
comprehensive and polished document. Most of the changes were minor, but one
I feel worth mentioning is that the document's language has changed to
include people who are neither guides nor blind sailors with respect to
participating in committees.
In the upcoming weeks we would like to have a vote to ratify the bylaws.
Anyone with a vested interest in the future of the group is eligible to vote.
We are currently coordinating with CBI to set up a time to have a voting
gathering, where we can also celebrate our progress and kick off the season
together. There will also be the option to submit your ballot online. Stay
tuned for a date in the next couple of weeks.
For those wondering what comes after that, once we have the bylaws ratified,
we will hold a vote to elect board members, who will then elect committees,
and continue with steps to become a 501(c)(3). Thank you everyone for your
patience as we carefully go through all of these steps to have a solid
foundation as a non-profit blind sailing group in Boston. We know it has been
a long ride!
Hope to see you soon,
Grace & the Steering Committee
