ARTICLE VIII – AMENDMENTS
The Board of Directors shall have the power and authority to adopt and amend the by-laws.
Club Ticket Distribution:
Club Tickets will be offered to those members in good standing.
If there is a higher request than available tickets, members with the highest number of participation points will have the first option of purchase. In the case of a tie, the member with the most seniority in the club will have the first option to purchase the ticket. In case of a further tie, the member with the most points from the previous year will have the option to purchase the ticket and after that, it goes alphabetically.
If a member receives a ticket, and cannot attend the concert, that ticket MUST be turned back in to the club to be offered to the next person in line on the qualified list, and if no-one else is able to use that ticket, the member is still liable to pay for that ticket.
If a member violates this policy, that member will lose his/her ticket privilege for the following year.
Club tickets can ONLY be used by eligible Parrot Head Club members. It is a violation of PHIP rules to give, or sell a club ticket to anyone other than an eligible member of a Parrot Head Club. Violations of this rule can mean not only the loss of our PHIP charter, but could result in the loss of ticket privileges for all of the Parrot Head clubs in the country.
Board of Directors Elections:
Nomination requests for Board of Director members will be announced in the October Newsletter with all nominations to be brought to the October meeting or submitted electronically prior to the November meeting. Ballots will be sent electronically following nominations and club members will be required to submit ballots one (1) week before the November meeting. A simple majority of those ballots received before the November meeting will elect. If only one (1) individual is nominated per office a show of hands will be taken at the November meeting for election.
Officers shall be elected for two (2) year terms beginning on January 1st. Officers terms will be staggered in order to maintain continuity on the Board of Directors, with the President's and Treasurer's terms beginning January 1st, in even years and Vice President’s and Secretary's terms beginning January 1st, in odd years.
