The Emmet Dem Bylaw Committee has been hard at work this summer going through the bylaws of the organization making proposed changes, corrections and/or additions.


If you, as a member of the ECDC, have any suggested proposals please contact one of us and let your suggestions be known to the committee or mail you suggestions to ECDC, P.O. Box 823, Petoskey, MI 49770.


Deadline for all proposed changes, additions and/or corrections by the membership must be received by Aug. 20, 2017.


Revisions will be made available both here on the website (About Us/Bylaws) and at the September 21 General Membership Meeting.  A vote of the membership on the Bylaw Revisions will take place at the Oct. 12 General Membership meeting.
