SOU Retirees Association Guidelines

Ratified May, 2006

 


 

Southern Oregon University Retirees Association

Guidelines

I. Name:
The name of this organization shall be the "Southern Oregon University Retirees Association."

II. Purposes:

 

  1. To provide a campus "home" to serve as a point of contact at the university for retirees.
  2. To promote social interaction among all retirees through events, council representation, a newsletter, and a web site.
  3. To provide campus events to encourage a continuing relationship between SOU and association membership and to promote ongoing intellectual stimulation and activities.
  4. To provide opportunities for the university to use the talents of retired faculty and staff to the benefit of the university and retirees, including knowledgeable advocacy.
III. Membership:
Membership shall be open to all SOU retired faculty and staff and to their spouses and surviving spouses. Members should have been employed for five years of active, full-time service.  Retirees from other universities and colleges may be enrolled with the approval of the Council.

IV. Retirees Council:
The Retirees Council is established to administer the affairs of the association.  The nine members of the Council shall be elected during spring by a vote of the general membership for a term of three years. One-third of the council shall be elected annually. At least five members shall be SOU Emeritus faculty.  Meetings of the Council shall be open to all members.

V. Officers:
The officers of the Association shall be a President, a Vice President, a Past President, a Treasurer and a Secretary. With the exception of the Past President, all the officers shall be elected annually by the Retirees Council from among its members. All officers shall be elected for a one-year term but may be re-elected.

VI. Annual Meeting and Elections:
There shall be an annual meeting in the spring, to be determined by the Retirees Council, to elect members to the council. The Council shall appoint a nominating committee of at least four persons, at least two of whom are Emeritus Faculty.  The members of the Council shall be elected by members in attendance at the annual meeting. Election shall be by a plurality of votes cast. Following the annual spring meeting and election of new Council members, the Retirees Council will then elect the officers for the coming year.

VII. Dues:
The Retirees Council may assess dues as needed.

VIII. Amendments to Guidelines:
These guidelines may be amended at the annual spring meeting of the Association. Proposed amendments must be circulated to the membership in writing at least twenty days prior to the meeting. For purposes of amendment a quorum shall consist of those active members in attendance.
