The following is being e-mailed to all Salt Lake Grotto members:

The next Salt Lake Grotto Meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 3, 2006 in
the Main Salt Lake City Public Library, SE Corner of Second East and Fourth
South, at 7:00 p.m. Our meeting room has been changed to Conference Room C,
Level -1, entered by the stairs in the Library Atrium. Dues are now due, but
may be delayed because of the following proposed bylaw change. Please read.

I would like to change the present Salt Lake Grotto Bylaw which determines
dues payments. The present bylaw is not appropriate for the existing
conditions. The dues of $15 was determined when we had 6 issues per year of
the Utah Caver. Also, the Cross-Grotto membership has only been used by one
person for several years. I propose to lower annual dues to $10 per regular
member, $5 for family member, and $15 for mailed newsletters. Eliminate the
mailed monthly trip schedule.

The present bylaw is:

Bylaw #2 - DUES: Regular Membership dues shall be $15 which includes full
membership, a mailed monthly trip schedule, and a newsletter which must be
picked up at a general meeting. Mailing Regular Membership dues shall be $21
which will be the same as Regular Membership except that the newsletter will
be mailed flat in an envelope. Family Membership dues shall be $5 and
restricted to family members of a Regular Membership and shall not receive the
monthly schedules or newsletters. Cross-Grotto Membership dues are $5 and is
available to anyone who is a member of another Utah grotto, receives their
newsletter from that grotto, and has paid dues in the other grotto for the
calendar year, payable January 1st. They shall be mailed the monthly trip
schedule. All dues are for the calendar year, payable January 1st. If
joining between July 1st and October 1st, one-half of the above dollar amounts
will be dues. Newsletters are available only to paid Grotto members.

Change this to:

Bylaw #2 - DUES: Regular Membership dues shall be $10 which includes full
membership, access to member's only sections of the Grotto's website, and a
newsletter which must be picked up at a general meeting. Mailed newsletter
Regular Membership dues shall be $15. Mailed newsletter privileges are the
same as Regular Membership except that the newsletter will be mailed flat in
an envelope. Family Membership dues shall be $5 and restricted to family
members of a Regular Membership and shall not receive newsletters. All dues
are for the calendar year, payable January 1st. If joining between July 1st
and October 1st, one-half of the above dollar amounts will be dues.
Newsletters are available only to paid Grotto members.

The process for changing bylaws is as follows:

Constitution Section VII: Amendments to this constitution and its bylaws shall
be made by a two-thirds favorable vote of those present at any meeting called
by the Executive Board expressly for the purpose, or by written consent of a
majority of the total membership. Proposed amendments must be presented to
the membership at a general meeting at least one month prior to the meeting at
which the amendment will be voted on.

This means we cannot vote on the change until the February meeting. If this
change is agreeable we can hold off dues payment until February. Our treasury
can withstand the delay.

Dale Green, Secretary
