1. Revise guidelines to include: "Dormers: Allowed in back of house; dimensions, style, and materials must be approved by the RFCA architecture committee in advance." The purpose of this amendment is to clearly state our approval of dormers such that they are not exceptions to the rule, and to allow residents to expand the use of their homes.
A. The management of The Rodgers Forge Community, Inc., shall be by the Board of Governors of The Rodgers Forge Community, Inc. (hereinafter “Board”.)
B. Board of Governors - General (Revision 2013-0006)
1. Size: the Board shall be composed of not fewer than twelve, nor more than twenty-three Board Members, as may be set from time to time by the Board of Governors.
2. Eligibility: To be eligible to serve on the Board, a person must be a current Member, as defined in paragraph III.
3. Participation: All elected board members must serve on at least one committee, attend a minimum of 7 meetings per fiscal year, and support the RFC, Inc.’s Mission Statement (Appendix A) and Conduct of Board Members Statement (Appendix B). PROPOSED ADDITION: All board members must participate annually in at least one of the three major events hosted by the RFCA: Dumpster Day, Egg Hunt, Picnic. This requirement may be waived, at the president's discretion, for members who have labor-intensive roles.
