Section 1.a. For the purposes of these Bylaws and the activities of this corporation, Slammaster Council is "the Poery Slam, Inc. council comprised of the desginated slammaster representative from a Poetry Slam, Inc certified and/or registered slam poetry venue."
Section 1.b. Eligibility. Subject to any provision in the Articles of Incorporation, members of the Slammaster Council shall be comprised of any individual who legitimately runs and organizes a regular Slam event certified by Poetry Slam, Inc. The Executive Council will determine an individual Slammaster’s eligibility for council membership.
Is there definitions of any of the following words as applicable to the by-laws: legitimately, Slam event? Why I ask: eligibilty does not include being a certified/registered venue with PSI which makes the Slammaster Council inclusive of any and all host or organizer of a "Slam" event. Without defining "legitimately" and "Slam" for the purposes of PSI's by-laws then non-certified/registered venues are techinically included in the SM's council as outlined by the current by-laws. Suggestion 1 for revision is above in bold. A 2nd differ suggestion for revision is in italics.
Motion to amend Article V Section I to further clarify if SM council is inclsuive of non-certified venues' host(s) &/and organizer(s) of slam events or limited to those host(s) &/and organizer(s) that have PSI certified their venues.
Section 3. Appointment and Removal. Each Slammaster Council member, referred to as Slammaster, shall maintain membership on the Slammaster Council so long as s/he
continues to organize or host a regular slam evenmaintains certification of the venue where s/he continues to organize or host regular slam events and/or the Executive Council removes him/her from the Slammaster Council. Unless otherwise provided in the Articles of Incorporation, a Slammaster may be removed, with or without cause, by vote of a majority of the Executive Council members entitled to vote at any Executive Council meeting, subject to Section 8.35 of The Business Corporation Act. Slammasters need not be residents of Illinois.
Suggestion for section 1 leads to suggestion for change to section 3, see above both the strike through and addition in bold. The suggestion in italics is me possibly being too-detailed oriented however there is no definition of "Slammaster" in by-laws. The definition suggestion makes the sentence potentially a run-on sentence but also addresses defining Slammaster, not convinvced there's a need for SM definition but added suggestion all the same.
