We are establishing bylaws and club members. I would really like this information to be clear and in simple words.

Hi Sara,

Here's the current mission statement and by-laws for the Torrey Hawks. These might be a good starting point for the Lakeview Hawks.

Torrey Hawks Mission Statement:

    The Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club is dedicated to promoting and protecting the sport of Hang Gliding at the Torrey Pines Gliderport.

Torrey Hawks By-Laws:

  • Article I - Name
    The name of the organization shall be the Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club. The club may also be known as the Torrey Pines Hawks Hang Gliding Club, Torrey Pines Hawks Hang Gliding Association, Torrey Pines Hang Gliding Association, or simply (and most commonly) the Torrey Hawks. The club web site shall be TorreyHawks.org.

  • Article II - Purpose
    The Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club is dedicated to promoting and protecting the sport of Hang Gliding at the Torrey Pines Gliderport.

  • Article III - Membership
    The membership of the Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club shall consist of individuals whose applications for membership have been accepted by the Association. Voting members must hold a USHPA rating of H4 or above and have flown a hang glider at the Torrey Pines Gliderport within the previous three years.

  • Article IV - Officers
    The officers of the Torrey Hawks shall be a President, Vice-President, and Secretary. These officers are elected for a one year term by voting members of the Club at the annual meeting. Representatives of the club to other organizations shall be chosen by the President.

  • Article V - Meetings
    The Torrey Hawks shall hold at least one annual meeting for the election of new officers. All other meetings are considered Special Meetings and will be scheduled as needed by a majority of the Torrey Hawks Officers. Meetings may be held electronically.

  • Article VI - Minutes and Records
    The Torrey Hawks secretary will take notes at all meetings and distribute them electronically as requested by members.

  • Article VII - Parlimentary Authority
    The Torrey Hawks meetings shall be governed by Robert's Rules of Order, Revised unless otherwise provided for in these By-Laws.

  • Article VIII - Ammendments
    Ammendments to these By-Laws may be made during Annual or Special Meetings and require a two-thirds vote of the voting membership present at any such meeting.

They're pretty simple, and they've worked for us for three years now. What do you think as a starting point? What do you think we should add, remove, or change?
