Subject: Follow up on December Report & Request for vote

Since the December board meeting, several board members have suggested changes to the documents presented to the board in December. Most of the changes are categorized as clarifications, amplifications or the correction of typos.

Substantive changes are:


Article III addition of:

  1. To engage in such other charitable activities as determined by the Board of Directors fromTo: CCH Board

From: Ad Hoc Governance Committee

time to time.

Article VII-Allow for a different principal location within Colorado.

Article IX-Remove the last sentence. Modernizes the Articles and allows for more governing flexibility.


Article III-

  1. Add a sentence at the end to clarify that the President & CEO serves as a non-voting ex officio member of the board.

Article VI-

  1. Clarify that the Board of Directors may, where permitted by law, delegate its authority to the Finance & Audit Committee.

Standards of Conduct & Conflict of Interest Policy:

III. C.1. Add at the end of the section:

It is acknowledged that a Board member, officer, employee or contractor may also be a client of the Coalition.  A client relationship with the Coalition is exempt from the annual reporting requirement.

Several directors have suggested that outside counsel review the revised corporate documents after approval by the Board.

After the approval of the amended governing documents, each standing committee will be asked to draft a Committee Charter to present to the Board of Directors for approval by midyear 2017 (Bylaws, Article VI. 10.) Some committees have a document to revise, other committees will be starting fresh.

The Ad Hoc Governance Committee respectfully requests approval of the revised governing documents presented in December with the friendly amendments offered by directors since that time.

Happy New!! Happy Chanukah!! Happy Kwanzaa!
