“Written notice stating place, day hour and purpose of any
regular Club or Board meeting shall be delivered either personally,
by mail, private carrier, telephone, electronic transmission (including
e-mail), wire or wireless equipment that transmits a facsimile of
the notice, to each Club member or Board member respectively, in
accordance with the notification requirements detailed in the Club's
Constitution. Notice sent by electronic transmission must satisfy
the requirements set forth in RCW 24.04.009 and as follows.
Notice by electronic transmission is effective when (a) electronically
transmitted to an address, location, or system designated by the
re-cipient for that purpose, and is made pursuant to the consent
provided by the recipient; or (b) has been posted on an electronic
network and a separate record of the posting has been delivered to
the recipient together with comprehensible instructions regarding
how to ob-tain access to the posting on the electronic network. Each
Club or Board member hat desires to receive notice via electronic
transmission must consent to the receipt of such electronic transmitted
notices via electronic transmission by designating in the consent
the message format accessible to such person and the address, location
or system to which these notices may be electronically transmitted.
A Club or Board member who has consented to the receipt of electronically
transmitted notices may revoke the consent by delivering a written
revocation to the Club.”
This resolution must be renewed annually.
Heated discussion of the

to parties in the Calif. Senate.
