Bylaws up for Review are linked below:

Agenda: The sole agenda item is the vote by membership as to the proposed amendments to the Bylaws. The meeting will be called to order, a quorum will be established, and those members attending can submit his/her vote on the proposed revised Bylaws at the meeting. The meeting will be adjourned at the designated time and all votes timely received will be tabulated. The results of the vote will be announced to the membership electronically.

In accordance with the Association’s governing documents and Florida law, a Special Meeting of the Membership will be held to cast your vote for the proposed revised Bylaws. The Board of Directors, a Bylaws Committee and the Association’s legal counsel reviewed the Association’s Bylaws this past year to determine if changes were required under current Florida law, or were appropriate as certain subjects were either not addressed in the current Bylaws or certain provisions need further clarification. NAR® mandated provisions have also been included. To ensure all changes are internally consistent, the Amendments to the Bylaws are offered as one vote: “approved” or “not approved.” The purpose of the amendments is to provide the membership, your Board, the officers and staff with a detailed, transparent, and accurate document of the procedures and processes of conducting Association business, to include those governing elections and the qualification of all candidates, and the duties and privileges of every member of the Association.

You will need your NRDS number at the meeting. If you don’t know your NRDS number you can find it by clicking here.
