Provide for Executive Committee Update to reflect that the board operates with an executive committee. Defined as elected officers and immediate past president, the committee is subordinate to and advisory to the Board. The role is to assist in planning and implementation of Board plans, committee appointments, and duties. The committee reports to the Board at its next meeting or by email and its actions are recorded separately or reviewed and included in the minutes of the Board.
Ex-Officio Members In 2016 membership approved enabling city officials as ex-officio non-voting members of the board. The update recognizes both Kenner City Council at Large seats and City Council District 4 as ex-officio nonvoting members of the board.
Standing Committees Update standing committees as External Affairs, Communications, Membership, Social, Membership, Nominating and Advertising.
Delete Two Obsolete Committees. Delete Deed and Architectural committee and Covenant Compliance committee. Neither has functioned in recent memory.

Elections Delete proxy voting, eliminate area directors being voted on only by members from their area, and expand nomination and voting procedure.
Board Responsibilities. Expand duties regarding taxes, bank accounts, fiduciary accounts and licenses.
