Dear Members,

Recently, with the assistance of a work group and the By-Laws Committee, the Executive Council undertook an extensive review of the HCBA By-Laws and we have approved significant changes to the By-Laws.

As required by Article XXVIII, “By-Laws may be adopted, amended or revised by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Qualified Members (Article III (a)) who are preset, provided that at least thirty (30) day notice will be given to the members of any proposed By-Law amendment thereto.”  Thus, for your review, this email contains links to our current By-Laws, our current By-Laws showing the proposed edits, and a clean, “final” version.

Please take an opportunity during this notice period to review the proposal, as we will be voting on the changes at our May 13, 2016 Annual Meeting.

1. Current by-laws without edits link

2. Current by-laws with edits link.

3. Clean copy of proposed bylaws link

If you have any questions regarding the changes, please feel free to contact President Yolanda L. Curtin at

Thank you,

Jayne Haiber, Esq.
