Annual Membership Meeting!

Dear BAKE Members:
I am happy to report that BAKE had a wonderful season with many new faces and vibrant, dynamic presenters! Nine of our members travelled to the national conference in Minneapolis last month, and two of our members were represented as teachers to children in the National Choirs. Now, we are moving forward with plans for next year.

A few weeks ago at the O.A.K.E. Conference in Minneapolis, Katie Bach and I attended several meetings as your chapter Treasurer and President. We attended the annual Advisory Council Meeting with all chapter presidents, treasurers, division presidents and regional representatives. I also attended the Eastern Division meeting with our fellow East Coast chapters.

Every chapter has been challenged to study their by-laws as a working document and ensure that they are in compliance with the national by-laws. To that degree, I have appointed a by-laws committee. This committee has begun to review the by-laws and make any necessary changes. We will hold an Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, May 9 at Boston University at 9:00 a.m. in Room 171. The by-laws committee will send you the revised document no later than April 30, along with an explanation of any changes, in order to give you time to review the document. The May meeting will include a brief financial report from our treasurer, an announcement of workshop presenters for the 2015-2016 season, and an explanation of by-laws changes. This will be followed by a vote to ratify the new by-laws.

All BAKE members with a professional membership who attend this meeting have voting rights. Please mark your calendar for this very brief but important meeting on May 9th! Should you have any questions, feel free email me atbostonkodaly@gmail.com.
