Page 480

At the Quarterly Meeting of the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Historical Society, Held in the Historical Society Building October 29, 1931

Judge Williams proposed the following amendments to the Constitution:

To amend the Constitution by adding Section 4-a to Article 5, as follows: "No member of the Board of Directors shall be eligible to be elected to any office which carries with it a salary, or designation as an employee which carries with it compensation, until six months have expired from the date of the termination of his or her membership in such board."

To amend Article 5 of the Constitution by adopting and adding Section 4-b, as follows: "The absence of a member of the Board of Directors from three consecutive regular quarterly meetings of the Board of Directors shall operate to terminate the membership of such director from said board, provided that the attendance of such member at special board meetings during such period shall operate to prevent termination of membership; and provided further, that a written statement from such member that he was reasonably prevented from attending such board meeting may prevent the termination of such membership on such board."

To amend Article 2 of the Constitution by adding Section 9, so as to read as follows:

Only such members as have paid their annual membership fees and life members shall be entitled to vote for the election of members of the Board of Directors, provided further, that a representative of each newspaper in the State of Oklahoma which exchanges its paper with the Oklahoma Historical Society for the Chronicles of Oklahoma, duly designated as such representative, shall be entitled to vote for the election of members of the Board of Directors and to participate in and vote on all matters at annual meetings.

Mr. Foreman moved that the proposed amendments to the constitution be printed in the December number of Chronicles, which motion was seconded and carried.
