Membership Meetings

These are the kinds of Meetings CVNA can have, paraphrased from Article VI of our Bylaws.

Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting occurs each May. The Board will provide a minimum of seven days written notification of the scheduled meeting to all active members of the CVNA.

All actions or recommendations of the Annual and Special meetings shall be communicated to all affected parties.
Special Meetings
