These amended By-Laws were approved Oct. 18, 2006 and will take effect 1 January 2007; none of the accepted amended By-Laws are retroactive.
The current By-Laws
of Tux.Org, Inc. specify an election of the Board of Directors of the
Corporation once a year. The ByLaws that go into effect 1 Jan 2007 now specify the term length of a BoD member. From Section 3.03:
The term of office of the Directors shall be limited to four consecutive two-year terms. Upon completion of four consecutive two-year terms, a person may be again re-elected to the board one year after the completion of his or her previous two-year term.
The new term limit will apply to all BoD members starting 1 Jan 2007.
