In order to provide an ongoing operating structure that
hon ours the sacrifices, traditions and historic contributions
that the Founding Members of the Vets Club established in
1956 and that has served the community of Phelps and District
since its inception, the current Board of Directors have
determined that all bylaws past and present should be reviewed,
edited and approved by membership .
In July through November 2019 the Phelps and District
Veterans Club Board of Directors undertook such
a review to ensure they reflected the current vision
and objectives of the Club, having evolved over
several decades. The Board members reviewed and
edited the current documents over the next few meetings,
and have now agreed on a proposed set of revisions
to reflect current values, vision and language so
as to be more meaningful for Club Members and those
partaking in Club activities and events.
The Board wishes to ensure long term sustainability of
the Club, in terms of financial viability but also membership,
and promote active engagement within and from the community.
The Board also wishes to attract new members of all ages
within the community, including youth and new residents
of the area.
For the most part, revisions made can be categorized
as cosmetic and modernized language. The Board has
also worked to meet our objectives to support an
increased membership for viability and enable community
outreach, while ensuring the original founders
objectives are maintained. The Board has done due
diligence in choosing words carefully to maintain
the original intent of the Club, while encouraging
growth and engagement.
