President:                                Mike Krummenacker, Hicksville FD

First Vice President:              Carl Boegel, Jr., Rockville Centre FD

                                                John Scalesi, Bellmore FD

Second Vice President:          Lee Tucholski, Freeport FD

Treasurer:                               Stephen Goodman, Great Neck Vigilant Fire Company

Secretary:                               Juan Batta, Hewlett FD

Financial Secretary:               Tony Tripp, Glen Cove FD

 

Past President McElynn reported that this slate is in case the proposed changes to the bylaws are approved – if not, changes will be made accordingly.

           

NEW BUSINESS:

1.               Secretary Batta read the following proposed changes to the Bylaws:

 

ARTICLE IV (OFFICERS), SECTION 1:

 

To read from: The Officers of this Association shall consist of a:

A.    President

B.    First Vice President

C.    Second Vice President

D.    Third Vice President

E.     Fourth Vice President

F.     Sergeant-at-Arms

G.    Secretary

H.    Treasurer

I.       Financial Secretary

 

Changed to read to: The Officers of the Association shall consist of:

A.    President

B.    First Vice President

C.    Second Vice President

D.    Sergeant-at-Arms

E.     Secretary

F.     Treasurer

G.    Financial Secretary

 

ADD SECTION 3:

 

The Officers of this Association shall be divided into two (2) categories: Line Officers and Administrative Officers. The Line Officers shall consist of the President, First Vice President, and the Second Vice President. The Administrative Officers shall consist of the Sergeant-at-Arms, Secretary, Treasurer, and Financial Secretary.

 

Explanation: It has been suggested by the Board of Directors that we do not need four (4) Vice Presidents to run the Association, especially when we go to two (2) year terms. It would be easier to assign duties to fewer members since we do not have that many duties anyway. The office of Sergeant-at-Arms could become somewhat a permanent position over a longer term and provide some continuity and knowledge in the position. The ascension in office will be 1st Vice President to President, 2nd Vice President to 1st Vice President, and an active and deserving member, as defined in these bylaws, elected by the membership to be the new 2nd Vice President. We do need to vet our candidates better than we do now.

 

ARTICLE V (NOMINATIONS AND ELECTION OF OFFICERS:

SECTION 1:

 

To read from: All officers shall be nominated and elected annually, by ballot, by a majority vote of all members and delegates present and voting at the Annual Meeting.

 

Changed to read to: All officers shall be nominated and elected Biennially (every 2 years), by ballot, by a majority vote of all eligible members and delegates present and voting at the annual meeting of the Association. This Association will not consider any person for any office who has never been an active firefighter or an active EMS member of a volunteer fire department or fire company in Nassau County.

 

Explanation: The Board of Directors voted to add the above amendment to ensure that only bonifide firefighters and EMS persons become members of the Association’s governing board.

 

 

 

 

SECTION 2:

 

To read from: The term of office of the President, Vice Presidents, Sergeant-at-Arms, Secretary, Treasurer, and Financial Secretary shall be for a period of one (1) year or until their successors are elected and duly installed.

 

Changed to read to:

  1. The term of office for the elected officials defined in Article IV, Section 1 shall be for a period of two (2) years from the date of the annual meeting at which they are elected or until their successors are elected and duly installed.
  2. The Line Officers shall not serve more than two (2) consecutive two (2) year terms in each position. The Administrative Officers may serve multiple consecutive terms.

 

Explanation: It is the general consensus that the existing one (1) year term of office places a restriction on the ability of the officers, especially the President, to be able to implement the ideas and plans to move the Association forward. Many other organizations have discovered the same issue and have implemented 2 year terms for their officers. We should also.

 

SECTION 3:

 

To read from: Nominations for all officers shall be made at the January quarterly meeting. The Nominating Committee shall submit the names of candidates for each office to the membership. Additional candidates may be nominated from the floor at that meeting. A motion to close the nominations shall be made and no additional nominations shall be made.

 

Changed to read to: Nominations for all officers shall be made at the biennially January quarterly meeting beginning in 2020. The Nominating Committee shall submit the names of candidates for each office to the membership. Additional candidates may be nominated from the floor at that meeting. A motion to close the nominations shall be made and no additional nominations shall be made.

 

Explanation: Elections will now be conducted every 2 years (Biennial) instead of annually, beginning in 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

ARTICLE VI (DUTIES OF OFFICERS)

SECTION 2:

 

To read from: Vice Presidents, in the order of their election, shall assume the duties of the President in his or her absence, perform all the duties and responsibilities of that position when occupying that same, and perform other such duties as the Association or the Board of Directors may direct. The Fourth Vice President shall be in charge of saleable Association items, assisted by such members or committee(s) as may be assigned by the President.

 

Changed to read to: Vice Presidents, in the order of their election, shall assume the duties of the President in his or her absence, perform all the duties and responsibilities of that position when occupying that same, and perform other such duties as the Association or the Board of Directors may direct.

(Last sentenced removed)

 

Explanation: The 2nd Vice President is now the Junior Vice President as the 3rd & 4th Vice Presidents have been eliminated.

 

 

ARTICLE VIII (VACANCIES IN OFFICE)

SECTION 1, B:

 

To read from: A vacancy in the office of any of the Vice Presidents shall be immediately filled by the next ranking Vice President.

 

Changed to read to: A vacancy in the office of the First Vice President shall be filled by the Second Vice President.

 

Explanation: There will be only 2 Vice Presidents now that the 3r & 4th VPs have been removed.

SECTION 1, C:

 

To read from: A vacancy in the office of the Fourth Vice President shall be immediately filled by the Sergeant-at-Arms.

 

Changed to read to: If a vacancy in the office of Second Vice President occurs between April 1 and the annual meeting, that office will remain vacant and be filled by nomination and election at the annual meeting in May in accordance with the bylaws. Otherwise, the vacancy will be filled by appointment, until the next annual meeting by the Board of Directors (BOD) at their next regular board meeting or at a special BOD meeting called specifically for that purpose. The eligibility requirements for the position, as specified in the bylaws, will be followed and a two-thirds (2/3) majority of the Board of Directors present and voting shall be required for the appointment.

 

Explanation: With the elimination of the 3rd & 4th Vice President positions, this section requires an update to fill the vacancy of the 2nd Vice President. The Sergeant-at-Arms will no longer automatically assume the Junior VP position.

 

SECTION 1, D:

 To read from: If a vacancy in the office of Sergeant-at-Arms occurs within 45 days prior to the Annual Meeting, that office shall remain vacant and be filled by nomination and election at the Annual Meeting. Otherwise, the vacated office of Sergeant-at-Arms shall be filled by appointment by the Board of Directors at the next regular meeting of the Board of Directors or at a special meeting called for that purpose. A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the members of the Board of Directors, present and voting, shall be required for such appointment.

 

Changed to read to: If a vacancy occurs in the offices of Sergeant-at-Arms, Secretary, Treasurer, or Financial Secretary it shall be filled by appointment, until the next annual meeting, by the Board of Directors (BOD) at their next regular board meeting or at a special BOD meeting called specifically for that purpose. Candidates for the appointed Sergeant-at-Arms position must meet all requirements of the bylaws before they are voted upon. A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the Board of Directors present and voting shall be required for the appointment.

 

Explanation: Candidates for office must be qualified before being voted upon. This sentence just reinforces that.

 

SECTION 1, E:

 

To read from: A vacancy in the office of Secretary, Treasurer, or Financial Secretary shall be filled by appointment by the Board of Directors at the next regular meeting of the Board of Directors or at a special meeting called for that purpose. A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the members of the Board of Directors, present and voting, shall be required for such appointment.

 

Changed to read to: THIS SUBSECTION WILL BE DELETED.

 

Explanation: This subsection was added to Article VII, Section 1, D.

 

ARTICLE XIII (COMMITTEES AND DELEGATES)

SECTION 2, B:

 

To read from: The First Vice President shall be the delegate to the Southern New York Volunteer Firemen’s Association with the remaining Vice Presidents as his or her alternate.

 

Changed to read to: The First Vice President shall be the delegate to the Southern New York Volunteer Firemen’s Association with the Second Vice President as his or her alternate.

 

Explanation: The 3rd and 4th Vice Presidents have been eliminated and this corrects the wording.

 

These will be voted on at the Annual Meeting held on May 16th in Hicksville, and will be immediately put into effect.

 

2.               President Krummenacker then brought up the solicitation from the Firefighters Cancer Support Network’s Tee Sponsorship for their Golf Outing on May 7th at the Hamlet Wind Watch Country Club for $50. Motion made by Past President Roy Dahlen, seconded by Financial Secretary Tripp, and carried to purchase a Tee Sponsorship for the Firefighters Cancer Support Network’s Golf Outing.
