BEACON staff is recommending the BEACON Board of Directors amend the BEACON Bylaws expressly incorporating into the purposes, objectives and authorities of BEACON, regional coastal beach access, and regional-level climate, sea-level rise adaptation, and coastal resilience. This change is suggested to strengthen BEACON’s ability to address these important topics in its policies, programs, and projects.

The suggested draft Bylaws are posted below.

Article IX of the Bylaws require amendments be submitted to each member of the organization and its staff at least fifteen (15) days before its next regular meeting.

Approval of amendments to the BEACON Bylaws requires a two-thirds majority vote of the Board of Directors (7 affirmative votes).
