Bylaws of the Mordecai Citizens Advisory Council

Bylaws News

July 2018: Raleigh Citizens Advisory Council is in the process of adopting RCAC bylaws. The Mordecai CAC Leadership team met and has responded to several concerns.

MCAC Letter to RCAC Bylaws Committee,  7/13/18

RCAC proposed bylaws, June 2018:

The MCAC discussed the proposed bylaws at our regular CAC meeting in September.  The changes that the MCAC has expressed concern with by written letter are changes in our officer election process and changes in our voting process. Our concerns were not taken into consideration in the proposed changes. The proposed bylaws were on the schedule for discussion at the September RCAC meeting. A vote was not taken at that time. The MCAC is prepared to vote no on the latest version of proposed new bylaws:

RCAC Final proposed bylaws, September 2018: 

Final RCAC bylaws:
Following is a link to the final verson of the RCAC bylaws. These bylaws were adopted by an affirmative vote of the Raleigh Citizens Advisory Council on November 14, 2018 and acknowledged by a vote of the Raleigh City Council on December 4, 2018. Sean Farres represented the Mordecai CAC at the November RCAC meeting and cast our “no” vote after our objections had been discussed as at the September and October MCAC meetings and with our leadership team. The Mordecai CAC will further discuss how to proceed during the January 2019 meeting.

We will refer to this procedure, outlined in the new RCAC bylaws:

Article VII – Amending of Bylaws
Section 1. Amendments
These bylaws may be amended, changed or replaced by the following process:
A. The affirmative vote of two thirds of the members present at any regular or special meeting of the CAC, provided the mailed agenda for said meeting included notice of a vote on bylaws amendments and a description of the amendments.
B. The affirmative vote of two thirds of the members of the Raleigh Citizens Advisory Council. These bylaws shall then take effect 30 days after they have been approved by the Raleigh Citizens Advisory Council.
