Amendments to the Bylaws

The activities of Mt. Diablo Business Women are governed by our bylaws, which have been approved by members. Below are proposed additions to the bylaws in the areas of dues payment by general members, qualification and dues payment for our new Student Member classification, and how resignations from the MDBW Board of Directors will be handled going forward. If you’re a MDBW member, you’ll soon receive an email for voting on whether you accept these additions to the bylaws.
