Welcome to Shoreline Sailing Club


Notice of Special Meeting for the Shoreline Sailing Club
October 4, 2019   7:30pm
Westbrook Elks Lodge
142 Seaside Ave
Westbrook, CT 06498

NOTICE TO SSC MEMBERS: 

THE SSC BOARD HAS CALLED FOR  A SPECIAL MEMBER MEETING TO TAKE PLACE ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2018 AT 7:30 PM AT THE ELKS CLUB, WESTBROOK, CT. 

THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING IS TO CONSIDER AND VOTE ON A CHANGE IN THE SSC BY-LAWS.

Here is more information about the proposed change.

PURPOSE:  The purpose of the proposed By-Laws change is to ensure that all Members have an opportunity to vote for the election of officers, By-Law changes, and any other important business that may be presented to Members for their consideration and approval at Annual Member Meetings and Special Member Meetings.   

Many SSC Members live in New England only seasonally  and then relocate elsewhere for several months each year.  Those that continue to reside in Connecticut and nearby may not be able to attend meetings in person for several reasons, such as scheduling conflicts or the need to drive longer distances in actual or forecasted inclement weather. 

Under the current SSC By-Laws, there are SSC Members who are otherwise actively involved in the Club  but because they are not able to be present at an Annual or Special Member Meeting, they are therefore not able to cast their votes on the business  that comes before the membership at these meetings.  

Amending the By-Laws to allow proxy voting would give all Members a chance to vote on important matters for the Club no matter when meetings occur where such votes are held.  

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SSC BY-LAWS TO ADD A NEW SUBSECTION G  PROXY IN SECTION 3: MEMBER MEETINGS

G.  Proxy:  For purposes of  Section 8 and of Subsections B, C, and F of Section 3,  a Member may execute a proxy giving another Member the authority to act on his/her behalf  (the “Proxy Holder”)at the specific Annual Member Meeting or Special Member Meeting indicated in the proxy.  To be effective, such proxy must be in writing and  have the full printed name and signature of the Member executing the proxy, the full printed name of the Member who is the Proxy Holder, the date executed, and a contact phone number for the Member executing the proxy.  Such proxy must be presented to the SSC Secretary or such other SSC officer  designated for this purpose prior to or at such time as requested regarding the meeting for which the proxy applies. A Member may be the Proxy Holder for more than one Member at the same time.  Each Member represented by a Proxy Holder shall be counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum has been reached and for purposes of voting on any proposal at such meeting as if the Member signing such proxy were present in person.

IF THE CHANGE TO THE BY-LAWS TO ADD SUBSECTION G IS APPROVED BY THE MEMBERS, THE SSC BOARD WILL PROVIDE SPECIFIC GUIDANCE AND A PROXY FORM FOR THOSE MEMBERS WHO WANT TO EXECUTE PROXIES FOR THE SSC ANNUAL MEMBER MEETING.  


The Shoreline Sailing Club is composed of a wonderful group of single people whose members share sailing/boating opportunities in one of the finest cruising areas in the country, Long Island Sound.  Those new to sailing/boating are welcome, as well as experienced skippers and crew.  Although we are a sailing club, and our primary mission is sailing, we do many activities besides following our passion for sailing.  We also enjoy a wide range of social and recreational activities throughout the year. 

The sailing and social calendar is very full.  In the summer there are day and sunset sails, weekend sails and a week long cruise.  During the off season, SSC members have sailed in Greece, British Virgin Islands, Antigua, Grenadines and St. Vincents. 

Throughout the year there are parties, group trips, dances, geocaching events, hiking, theater events, dinners and brunches, and docksides, which are small parties and gatherings in members' homes. 

Many members will say that they love the Shoreline Sailing Club because of the great friendships they have made and the wonderful opportunities they have had to go sailing and boating! Please join us, twice a month, on the first and third Thursdays at 7:30 PM.
