Special Membership Meeting

Tuesday January 19, 2021 

7:00 PM

As provided by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association Constitution, Section 10.01 - Special Membership Meeting, as Association President, I am calling for a Special Membership Meeting to be held on Tuesday January 19, 2021 at 7:00 PM in a virtual format. The purpose of the meeting is for the membership to consider certain time-critical amendments to our Constitution, including:

  • Permanent authorization of the use of remote communication for both the Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and any Special Membership Meeting (SMM). Currently, non-profit organizations such as Mass Youth Soccer are allowed to hold virtual AGMs and SMMs under state executive order, however that authority will end shortly after the Covid-19 emergency orders are lifted. Hence, the need to establish the option of utilizing virtual meetings in the Constitution before the emergency orders expire; and​
  • Revisions to, and updating of our process for membership meetings, use of proxies, and a membership voting strength “freeze” during the COVID pandemic. These updates to our membership governance will clarify voting authority, direct and via proxy, as well as better organizing how membership meetings are conducted.
  • Revisions to the Mass Youth Soccer Bylaws to a provide more explicit statement of purpose for the Leagues Committee, including a clearer organizational structure, and a stronger guide for the leagues committee to govern to its mission.

IMPORTANT: The Mass Youth Soccer Board of Directors adopted an updated policy for Proxy Voting on December 2nd 2020, please click here to view the Proxy Voting Policy.
