Rapidan Chapter Bylaws to be Reviewed

At the February 3 Chapter Meeting, Rob Paul queried the group about a review of the Chapter Bylaws.  All agreed it would be a good idea.  As this is a Chapter of its members, the Bylaws (signed by Hank Woolman in 1977) have been posted to the website.  Your review and comments would be most welcomed in preparation for the endeavor.  The Bylaws and the Chapter 5-Year Strategic Plan can be accessed by clicking here.  Please bring your comments to the Chapter Meeting or send them to Rob Paul via the Contact Us page.
