Bylaws Update 2019

On May 20, 2019, the Tangletown Neighborhood Association Board of Directors will be voting to update the organization’s bylaws. The existing Bylaws are quite out of date referencing positions that no longer exist, communications methods no longer in use, and more. We wanted to update our Bylaws to current standard best practices and make them more clear and easier to understand. Key changes to the Bylaws include:

  • 6 year term limit (currently there is no limit)
  • Officers will serve one year terms (currently it’s two years)
  • Allows board of directors to set Annual Meeting date (currently it must be in the spring)
  • Places most financial policies in a separate financial policies document (currently there is more detail in Bylaws)

The board has reviewed all updates as well as city of Minneapolis staff. We invite residents to review the drafted Bylaws and share their questions and feedback. See below documents:

Please share your questions or feedback by emailing or calling 612-564-3445. The vote on the drafted Bylaws will take place at our Annual Meeting, May 20 at 7pm at Fuller Recreation Center (4802 Grand Ave S). Per our Bylaws, changes will be voted on by the board of directors, not the general membership. The vote will occur before the election, thus if approved, the changes will affect newly elected board members.
