Tonight, ANC 6B”s Bylaws Working Group will meet to begin a comprehensive review of the commission’s bylaws, the rules that govern the commission’s structure and operations. The meeting begins at 6:30 pm in the Third Floor Conference Room at the Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE). All are welcome.
The bylaws working group is charged with:
- streamlining the document,
- clarifying confusing sections and/or ensuring that all sections comply with DC Code, and
- recommending changes to the bylaws that will improve the operation of the commission
As ANC 6B’s parliamentarian, I’ll be organizing and leading the working group process. Joining me on the working group are Commissioners Jared Critchfield (6B06) and Dave Garrison (6B01). The working group will also be assisted by Gottlieb Simon, executive director of the DC Office of Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, and two registered parliamentarians who live in the area.
Tonight’s meeting will focus on the first five articles of the ANC 6B bylaws which generally focus on the name, boundaries, responsibilities, members and officers of the commission. Future working group meetings will focus on the remaining articles. I plan to post all working group recommendations for comment on the ANC 6B website and my website.
