August VGFD Meeting: Understanding the new healthcare law, club election nominations

Come join us if we haven't seen you for a while. Welcoming gift for new members!
RSVP kindly requested..... see below if you haven't RSVP'ed yet. 


Join us for a training session. 

- What are the exchanges? 
- How do they work? 
- What are the regulations? 
- What are the changes? 
- What do people misunderstand? 
- Are the fines real?

Once you understand the act you'll feel better and won't need two aspirins.


It's your turn to step up for executive board. Nominations are made at the August meeting and the election is held at the September meeting.

- President
- Vice-president
- Treasurer
- Secretary
- At-large board member

Nominees must be members in good standing for at least 90 days prior to the election, paid dues and have actively worked in previous volunteer efforts of VGFD for at least 30 hours during the past 12 months. Volunteer hours are those for which no compensation is received from any source.

If you cannot attend the August meeting and wish to be nominated, or require more information, contact Randy Gold [email protected]



We will be voting on these proposed changes to the club's by-laws:

 Reduce the number of at-large board members from 7 to 3.
- Allow the club president to appoint a meeting chair to lead membership meetings.
- Reduce the number of nominating committee members from 5 to at least 2.
- Reduce the quorum for executive board meetings from 6 to 4.
- Remove the requirement that board nominees volunteer at least 30 hours on VGFD-related efforts in the prior 12 months. 
- Reduce the quorum for general meetings from 25% to 10% of club members in good standing. 



Bob Hertzberg, former Speaker of the California State Assembly and candidate for the 20th Senate District seat currently held by Alex Padilla, will be stopping by for a short visit.



Get the skinny on the trade pact you may never have heard of. We will consider a resolution against this trade pact.
