CYC Proposed Bylaw Change

Fellow members,

The newsletter sent earlier indicates that the proposed conflict of interest policy was read during the January GM meeting and has been posted on the bulletin board since that meeting. I have attached policy (Appendix A and Appendix B) for your review. Please note that this addition is due to NYS and IRS requirements for not for profit organizations to have a conflict of interest policy incorporated in their bylaws.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments prior to our Friday General Membership meeting during which we will be voting on the attached addition to our by-laws.

Respectfully,

Fred Schneider

Cornwall Yacht Club Secretary

Notice From Nick Stagliano Regarding Ethanol Legislation

The following was received from Henry Matheus past HRB&YCA board member.

We need to "get on" our President Elect Trump & Congress know it hurts us.

Jerry Silverman

President

Hudson River Boat & Yacht Club Association.

In one of the final acts of the Obama Administration, the EPA has announced its plans to further increase the country?s ethanol mandates, surpassing the current record high levels finalized less than one year ago. Despite overwhelming evidence, they unilaterally decided to increase the country?s mandated ethanol amounts requiring the American public to consume 1.2 billion more gallons of renewable fuel.

 It?s very likely the EPA?s decision will lead to more E15 being sold to unassuming consumers across the country?increasing the likelihood of a boater buying it accidentally!

 The good news is that it?s just for a year?with a new President, a new Congress and a new EPA we have a real opportunity to correct this failure reform this broken policy. With your help, we can tell President-Elect Trump and the new Congress to reform the ethanol mandate and save our boats from the dangers of E15!

 Click here to sign a petition that will be delivered to President Trump when he takes office in January. Once you have finished you will be prompted to send a similar message to your Senators and Representatives to stop E15 from becoming a greater reality.

 With your help, you will be the difference maker in making sure the new Administration and Congress stands up for boating and opposes E15.

 Don?t wait any longer, take action NOW and save boaters from the dangers of E15.
