Members Vote Unanimously to Accept Bylaws Change
New Category of Membership for Research & Development Partners Tops the List of Changes
A series of bylaws changes were recommended by the Local Media Association's board of directors recently and the membership voted unanimously to approve all of the changes.
Most of the changes that were recommended involved replacing outdated language and also changing language to reflect the new name (On January 1, 2012 the organization changed its name from Suburban Newspapers of America to Local Media Association). Other changes included the right for the immediate past chairman to be a voting member of the board (previously an ex-officio, non-voting member) and a quorum of 30% for future bylaws changes (the previous version did not establish a quorum).
The biggest and most exciting change was the creation of a new class of membership called R&D partners (Research & Development Partners). This class provides a higher level option for those that provide goods and services to the industry. The new class comes with voting rights and the ability to serve on the board of directors. The changes also allow two associate or R&D members to serve on the board at any given time as opposed to just one in the prior version.
"Our associate members have always been an important part of our membership" said Nancy Lane, president, Local Media Association. "Some of them want to play a bigger role with our association and we welcome that. This new level of membership will allow them to do that and will provide increased benefits to them. We especially like the term 'R&D partner' as this more accurately reflects their important role in the local media industry."
Currently Gordon Borrell, CEO, Borrell Associates serves on the Local Media Association board and is in fact moving into the chairs and will eventually become chairman of the board in 2015. This fall Matt Coen, CEO, Second Street Media will join the board as the second associate/R&D member. "Gordon's contributions have been significant" said Lane, "He brings a different and welcomed perspective to our meetings and helps us in ways that are different from our newspaper board members. We think that Matt will also strengthen our board and help us in our efforts to innovate, educate and inspire the industry during this time of great transition."
Note that the bylaws changes did not include any revisions to membership requirements for newspaper members. The Local Media Association board of directors continues to meet with members and host two-way discussions to better understand their position. The board does expect to recommend further changes to at least address the treatment of online-only members and to possibly expand beyond that. The board welcomes the input of all members. Send comments to board chairman Jon Rust at email@example.com.
For more information about the R&D class of membership, contact Al Cupo at (215) 256-6801 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Deanna Lewis at (207) 384-5022 or email@example.com.
