Article II Membership


The corporation shall have three classes of membership.

(a) Private Sector Membership. Private sector membership is limited to for-profit businesses that offer or sell primarily information technology products or services and whose principal place of business is physically located within Westchester County, New York. Each private sector member shall appoint one person as its representative to the corporation.

(b) Public Sector Membership. Westchester County shall be represented by the county’s Chief Information Officer and up to two representatives of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development. Each such representative shall be deemed to be a public sector member.

(c) Associate Membership. Associate membership is limited to businesses and other organizations that support, sustain and contribute to the viability and growth of information technology businesses in Westchester County but are not in the business of offering or selling information technology products or services, and whose principal place of business is physically located within Westchester County. Associate members may include, without limitation, professional service firms and technical and educational institutions accredited by New York State Board of Regents. Each associate member shall appoint one person as its representative to the corporation. Associate membership in the corporation may not exceed 25% of the entire membership.


Membership is annual and runs from the date each member joins. To renew its annual membership, each member must pay dues as established from time to time by the board of directors.


(a) Annual meetings of the members shall be held during the last calendar quarter of each year at such date and time as shall be designated from time to time by the board of directors and stated in the notice of the meeting, at which the members shall elect a board of directors and officers and transact such other business as may properly be brought before the meeting.

(b) Special meetings of the members, for any purpose or purposes, may be called by the Chairman of the Board or the President and shall be called by the Chairman of the Board or the President at the request in writing of a majority of the board of directors. Business transacted at any special meeting of members shall be limited to the purpose or purposes stated in the notice.


Notice of any meeting of the members shall be given by any means permitted by law to each member entitled to vote at such meeting at least ten days and not more than fifty days before the meeting. Notice of a meeting need not be given to any member who submits a signed and dated waiver of notice, in person or by proxy, whether before or after the meeting. The attendance of any member at a meeting, in person or by proxy, without protesting prior to the conclusion of the meeting the lack of notice, shall constitute a waiver of notice by such member.


(a) One third of all members shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of the members for the transaction of any business. If a quorum is not present at any meeting of the members, a majority of the members present may adjourn the meeting.

(b) Each member shall be entitled to one vote. All votes shall be taken by the membership as a whole, and not by class. Directors and officers shall be elected by plurality vote. Any other corporate action to be taken by vote of the members shall, except as otherwise required by law, be authorized by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of members.


In the months preceding each annual meeting of the members, a nominating committee appointed by the Chairman of the Board or President shall propose to the board a new slate of directors and officers to serve following such annual meeting. The board’s selection of director and officer nominees shall be circulated to the members with the notice of the annual meeting. No other nominee may be presented at the annual meeting unless such nominee presents a written petition to the Secretary, signed by at least ten members or member representatives, at least sixty days before the annual meeting, in which event such nominee shall be included in the notice of the annual meeting.

Web Site Information Are Hard to Find, Difficult to Read and Often Poorly Maintained. This Mi-Card puts a marketing theme together with a TLC (tender loving care) process and supports marketing and sales with communication and transaction tools to shorten the business cycle. The information is kept accurate and current if the Mi-Card sponsor keeps up with updates with linked web pages. The Mi-Card can be more cost effective than any other marketing media so long the Mi-Card sponsor does a good job in producing the content.

The TLC process can only guarantee the accuracy of the information and contact numbers as maintained by the sponsor of this Mi-Card. The sponsor can request update of the contact numbers if they are listed on the e800 Directory by simply sending an email to IPO2U.COM.
