ByLaw Update and Runway Closure
At the pancake breakfast / membership meeting the vote to change the wording of the ByLaws passed.
Old By-Law Wording:
“The Board of Directors shall recommend for approval of the membership all policies, procedures, projects, income/expenditure budgets, and acquisition, use, maintenance, modification, and disposal of Chapter property. Approval authority may be delegated in writing to Chapter Officers, committees, and individual members as appropriate.”
New ByLaw Wording:
“A majority of the Board of Directors present and quorum met, shall approve all policies, procedures, projects, income/expenditure budgets and acquisition, use, maintenance, modification and disposal of chapter property up to a limit of 20% of the chapter’s current liquid asset. Any amount over this limit requires a majority vote of the chapter membership.”Please contact John Morgan (email@example.com) or Louis Pucci (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
From Matt Smith, CM LZU:
As you may recall from my previous memos, it has been mentioned that the work requiring the relocated threshold may take up to 14 days, but was most likely going to take less time. After examining the work, and his sub-contractor schedules, the runway contractor has determined that he will need the full runway closure to begin on Tuesday, September 8th at 7:00 a.m. local time. Therefore:
ALL AIRCRAFT WILL NEED TO VACATE THE AIRPORT NO LATER THAN 6:00 a.m. (local) ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2020, IF YOU WISH TO USE YOUR AIRCRAFT BEFORE THE RUNWAY REHABILITATION PROJECT IS COMPLETED.
RUNWAY 7/25 WILL BE FULLY CLOSED ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2020 AT 7:00 a.m. (local)
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, awarded EAA's top level Gold Chapter status, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our youth programs, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor
EAA 690 members are on SLACK!

If working with youth is your interest, the Youth Aviation Build program needs additional mentors to support and grow the program. The Saturday program runs from 9 AM until 1 PM and could be the most rewarding thing you have ever done in aviation. You will never know until you try it
