Sometime since 2019, the NRA bylaws as they relate to called Special Meetings was changed and the time for notice considerably shortened.
From Article IV, Sec. 3 (b):
Special Meetings. A special meeting of the Board of Directors may be held at any time on the call of The President, or by action of the Executive Committee, or upon demand in writing stating the object of the proposed meeting and signed by not less than a majority of the Board. Notice of the time, place and object of such special meetings shall be transmitted to each Director at least seven days before the date of holding such a meeting in person, or 72 hours before any special meeting held by means of a conference telephone or similar communications technology pursuant to subsection (f) of this section.
Thus, I stand corrected on my comments on the update to the post on NRA Special Meetings that referenced the former 30-day notice requirement. The Special Meeting being held on March 14th would be valid under the bylaws as amended. Lest you think I was informed of this by a “friend of Wayne”, it came from Rob Pincus who is not.
I do wonder when this bylaw was changed and why. I do know that it was not voted on at either of the last two Meeting of Members as I attended both of those from start to finish.
I still anticipate that the Board of Directors will be asked to approve the bankruptcy filing ex post facto as seems to be the norm when called out on something.
