Vote by Proxy
Please review the following two proposals and vote using the electronic form that follows.

Proposal No. 1 - Election of Officers and Directors
All of the below appointments have consented to be nominated and to run for election as designated.

  • Tom O'Connor - 1st Vice-President
  • Bonnie Trumbull - 2nd Vice-President
  • Judy Hathaway - Secretary

Proposal No. 2 - Bylaws
The State of Oregon Department of Justice asks that all non-profits evaluate their Bylaws periodically.  It has been a significant time since we did that so we have rewritten the Bylaws to bring them current.  

The Highlights of OHC’s new Bylaws are:

  • Updated definition of membership
  • Enhanced objectives of Oswego Heritage Council
  • Future procedures for Bylaws and amendments if needed
  • Change in Board of Directors count to a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 25 
  • Redefined voting quorum at meetings
