There will be a vote on a by-law change. Article VIII, Section B currently reads “No Officer shall be re-elected to the same office for more than two consecutive terms.” The proposed change will read “The President shall not be elected to more than two consecutive terms.”

The change allows for more continuity for the positions of Secretary and Treasurer.

The cost for dinner and game is just $15.00. Sign up at the Bridge Center or send a check made out to the RBA to Chris D’Ambra, 611 Muirfield Clourt, Richmond, VA 23236.
