Notice of RESBC Bylaws Amendments  

The RESBC Board of Directors recently adopted amendments to update our Bylaws, as follows:

  • Article II, Section 6:  expanded general members’ non-liability
  • Article IX, Section 3:  added provision for notifications to board and general members using electronic means, and receiving votes electronically
  • Article IX, Section 6:  added “sexual orientation or gender identity”
  • Article X:  used wording required by Secretary of State

The complete amended bylaws document is available to view. You can find a link for it on the Bylaws page. You can find that page by first clicking the "Organization" menu link on the left, and then clicking the "RESBC ByLaws" menu link that opened.

The ByLaws were updated to comply with our mission and with government regulations pertaining to our nonprofit designation. Changes were necessary to comply with current IRS and State regulations including the change of our IRS designation from a social club (501c7) to a member social welfare organization (501c4).

We will resume our luncheon program when it is safe to do so. We will inform you of the new luncheon dates in our next newsletter. 

We regret that at this time we are not able to plan any social outings due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.   We will plan for new adventures as soon as we feel it is safe to do so.  Leave us a  message or email for any suggestions you may have for future events.

We are aware of our commitment to provide enjoyable, educational events for our members, and we will resume our exciting program just as soon as it is safe to do so. We greatly appreciate your membership, and we look forward to again being a big part of your retired life.
