Notice what is on the FRONT PAGE of the site there?
meeting minutes and by laws….
Keeping the public informed of what you are doing makes for a happier constituency.
Follow these RULES LAYED OUT BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FOR NON PROFITS and things will get better…

Yeah, but Brett, can you get the porn on that site!!!!!!!!!!! DooooohJanuary 6, 2007 at 3:21 am #38632
…does anyone ever check those links to fatbmx.com on the front of my site?….January 6, 2007 at 3:27 am #38633
First the links at FatBMX, always tellyou over 21 or 18, second, they are nothing like the what the links at NJBMX.org can take you to!!!!!!!!
Online gambling, they look like harmless game, but if junior got one of the credit cards, Ohhhh Boy!!!!!! There there tooJanuary 7, 2007 at 12:30 am #38646phantomMember
Who is attending the state meeting.I volunteered in youth sports for years if you cant get anwers or info from the state.You can take your issues to the next level and they should follow up on any secrecy you feel is being done.January 7, 2007 at 12:35 am #38647
It’s not about secrecy as much as it is about easily distributing information in one repository.
People like to be informed about what goes on at meetings and such even if they never attend.
If you’re paying money to race, you should be able to get easy access to any and all information pertaining to BMX racing in NJ.
Just my 2.
I will also add that Lisa does an excellent job of keeping the meeting minutes.January 7, 2007 at 2:39 am #38652dunrite9Member
😀 2 state races in 1 day, I like that. I can fill in all the squares on the plaque. :wink:!January 7, 2007 at 4:11 am #38653
Is that a coveted plaque??? 😯January 7, 2007 at 12:57 pm #38655tuffneckMember
yes Brett it can be done everyone should know what the bylaws say as members of a nonprofit org like the nbl and if you hold a nbl license you are a member yes each tracks bylaws as well as the states bylaws and yes they should be posted on the web sight along with the min . from every meeting this would save alot of head aches and people who cant make the meetings or just dont want to go can see what is going on and were THEIR MONEY is going again just my 2 centsJanuary 8, 2007 at 1:42 am #38662
Is there a reason why NJ bmx wont post there bylaws on there web site?January 8, 2007 at 2:14 am #38663
I’ve been told on numerous occasions to NOT post those by-laws.
Seems weird to me as other non-profit organizations such as
PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) to small non-profits for taking care of pigs post not only by-laws but financials.
It just makes sense because it puts peoples minds at ease.January 8, 2007 at 2:31 am #38666
If you go to Florida bmx you can see there by laws. http://www.floridabmx.com/ssa_by-laws.html
And were could one get a copy of the New Jersey by laws? Who do you have to contact?January 8, 2007 at 2:46 am #38669
I’ve been told you have to personally walk up to anyone at one of the new jersey tracks and ask for them directly.
Took me awhile to get em though when I needed them.
Yea, I notice florida is also very accessible.
They have a big program too.
I think the new njbmx.org will have the by-laws posted on the site or I will not be involved with helping the state next year.January 8, 2007 at 2:57 am #38672
This kind of answers my first question then. If they are that hard to get then either
1 They are hiding some thing.
2 They are not following the own by laws or
3 They just wing it and do what they want.
I have some one who sits on the NBL board. Would they be able to sit in on the next state meeting?January 8, 2007 at 3:50 am #38677
4) All of the above!!!!! 😯
And yes, the only time they are closed are emergency or special meetings
