Published June 10 2024

As part of the Spring Membership Meeting, a list of proposed changes will be presented to the membership for consideration. We will also hold elections for open positions on the Board of Directors. Please see the attached PDF for the list of the 2024 Proposals to be considered, along with nominees for the open Board of Directors positions.

The 2024 Membership Meeting will be held on June 22nd, 2024, at the Columbia Marriott in Columbia, South Carolina (1200 Hampton St, Columbia, SC 29201). The schedule of the meeting will be as follows:

  • 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM: Board of Directors Meeting
  • 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM: General Membership Meeting

The circuit accepts proposals from all current-year member groups and any member of the circuit administration in the following four categories:

  • By-Laws and Constitution
    • This category applies to governing rules contained in the By-Laws and Constitution of the organization.
    • Changes to the organization's by-laws and constitution require the approval of 2/3 of the membership present at the time of the vote to be approved.
    • Proposals passed by the membership for changes to the by-laws and constitution do not require the approval of the Board of Directors to pass.
  • Organization Administration, Rules & Circuit Championships
    • This is (typically) the largest grouping of proposals. This category encompasses all of the organization's policies and procedures.
    • Changes to the organization's policies and procedures require the approval of 51% of the membership present at the time of the vote.
    • Proposals passed by the membership in this category are then referred to the Board of Directors. For a change to become policy, 51% of the Board must vote to ratify it.

Additionally, we will hold elections for open positions on the Board of Directors. This year, the following positions are open:

  • President (incumbent Zakia Ruffin)
  • Secretary (incumbent Torey Riser)
  • At-Large Representative (incumbent Tom Padgett)
