Tanya Lam from San Jose, California, will be the guest speaker at Wednesday’s (September 13, 2017) Honolulu Orchid Society Meeting. Tanya has given many orchid talks to societies in the San Francisco Bay area and many cities where she conducts her Human Resources System consulting business. She has traveled to many parts of the world and has seen orchids growing in their natural habitats in Australia, the Bahamas, China, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. At Wednesday’s meeting Tanya will speak on “The Long Lasting and Frequently Blooming Orchid Species”.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM in the Lanakila Elementary School Cafeteria. Guests are more than welcome.
Before Tanya Lam’s presentation, members will vote on a proposed change to the Society’s By-Laws which if approved will reduce the number of the members required for a quorum from fifty (50) to thirty (30). The Honolulu Orchid Society Board of Trustees believes this amendment is important because the Society by-laws state that the bylaws can only be amended at a meeting of the Society in which a quorum is present and recent experiences suggest that it may be difficult to get fifty members present at a meeting. At least fifty members of the Society must be present at Wednesday’s meeting before the proposed change can be put to a vote.
Members are encouraged to attend Wednesday’s meeting to hear our special guest speaker and to vote on the proposed By-Laws change.
