All Members: Annual Membership Meeting May 7

All Members: Annual Membership Meeting May 7

All members are invited to the annual membership meeting for McKenzie Valley Wellness on Tuesday, May 7, at 7:00 PM. Anyone is welcome to attend, member or not. The annual meeting will be in-person only this year, at the Upper McKenzie Community Center, at 54745 McKenzie River Dr., Rainbow, OR at 7:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.

We will be collecting donations for our own local Food Pantry at the meeting. Please bring a couple cans or boxes of food to donate, if you can. Your food donation helps local community members, including seniors on fixed incomes, families with children, and people rebuilding after the fire.

This year’s ballot will ask MVW members to vote on our proposed new set of bylaws. We needed to update our bylaws to be consistent with changes made to Oregon laws in 2020. The Oregon Revised Statutes for nonprofit organizations made changes related to emails and virtual meetings, among other changes. Our proposed new bylaws also update our bylaws to clarify membership, board operations, and other governance topics.

The proposed new set of bylaws is posted here on our website for your review. It will also be mailed to each member of MVW, by regular mail or by email, according to your preference. If you are a member and did not get a copy of the bylaws, email us at , tell us whether you want it emailed or sent regular mail, your appropriate address, and we’ll get it out to you.

This year’s ballot also has two incumbent directors on the board running for re-election: Galen Phipps and Jennifer Zirkle.
