Proposal for amending the voting criteria for PHCA members and definition of PHCA membership
Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Whereas, the PHCA bylaw Article Article I. Membership. reads:

Article I. Membership.
1. Membership shall be open to all residents and non-resident property owners of single family homes within Pimmit Hills. Pimmit Hills is defined as that area within the boundaries of Route 7, Magarity Road, the Dulles Access Road and Pimmit Run. Members shall be eighteen or more years of age.
2. Membership shall be annual and will be granted upon payment of an annual membership fee. Application for membership maybe filed on any day of the year. Membership is granted after completion and receipt of a membership application and annual dues. Membership renewal is required one year from the date that membership is granted. Continued membership is contingent upon being up-to-date on membership dues. At the annual meeting each year, membership fees will be determined for the next year.
3. Voting shall be limited to members. Members shall not have proxy, absentee, or cumulative voting privileges.
4. The membership shall have the right to elect all officers and directors of the corporation.
5. The membership shall have the sole right, subject to the requirements of a quorum and majority as hereinafter provided.
a) To determine the policy of the corporation.
b) To authorize expenditure of corporate funds except as otherwise provided herein.
c) To authorize the corporation to enter into any contract, agreement or arrangement of any kind or nature.
6. Only members shall be eligible to be officers or directors of the corporation.


Whereas, allowing multiple votes per household skews voting toward the opinions of multi-person dwelling units and;

Whereas, allowing a single annual membership payment to cover multiple residents of a multi-person dwelling unit is economically disadvantages to single-person dwelling units;

Now, therefore, be it resolved
that the Pimmit Hills Citizens Association Board proposes replacing Article 1.3 of the Constitution of the Pimmit Hills Citizens Association with:


Article I. Membership.
1. Membership shall be open to all residents of Pimmit Hills and owners of property within Pimmit Hills. Pimmit Hills is defined as that area within the boundaries of Route 7, Magarity Road, the Dulles Access Road and Pimmit Run. Members shall be eighteen years of age or older. A single payment of the annual membership fee will convey membership, and all the rights and privileges afforded to members, to one person only. Eligible persons will have the right to hold one membership only at any one time. Membership is not transferable. Within the prior regulations, there will be no limit on the number of members registered to a dwelling unit.
2. Membership shall be annual and will be granted upon payment of an annual membership fee. Application for membership maybe filed on any day of the year. Membership is granted after completion and receipt of a membership application and annual dues. Membership renewal is required one year from the date that membership is granted. Continued membership is contingent upon being up-to-date on membership dues. At the annual meeting each year, membership fees will be determined for the next year.
3. Voting within PHCA organized meetings shall be limited to one vote per paid membership, regardless of the number of residents residing within a single dwelling unit. Members shall not have proxy, absentee, or cumulative voting privileges.
4. The membership shall have the right to elect all officers and directors of the corporation.
5. The membership shall have the sole right, subject to the requirements of a quorum and majority as hereinafter provided.
a) To determine the policy of the corporation.
b) To authorize expenditure of corporate funds except as otherwise provided herein.
c) To authorize the corporation to enter into any contract, agreement or arrangement of any kind or nature.
6. Only members shall be eligible to be officers or directors of the corporation.

Be it further resolved, that this change will affect new memberships and renewed memberships from this day forth. Currently valid members will be allowed voting rights in accordance with the previous bylaw until expiration of the member’s current paid membership period.

The amendment shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when accepted by a two-thirds vote of the members present and voting at any meeting, according to Article IX, provided the proposed amendment shall have been submitted in writing, proposed and seconded at a previous regular meeting of the membership, and provided further that a copy of the proposed amendment shall be delivered or published as provided in Article X not less than ten (10) nor more than fifty (5O) days prior to the date of the meeting.
