The Peninsula Wilderness Club is an informal organization for people interested in active outdoor pursuits. Activities include hiking, biking, backpacking, mountain climbing, rock climbing, kayaking, and skiing. All outings from casual hikes to technical mountain sports are initiated by individual members. These members are volunteers who generously offer to make minimal arrangements so an outing can take place.

PWC Bylaws Revision

On Friday November 4th 2022, the Peninsula Wilderness Club board met at the Silverdale VFW Hall to discuss two membership proposals to the club’s management structure. Three members have volunteered to serve as co-presidents in the next year (Erin Hennings, Stevo Pavkovic, and Cathie Strand). Additionally, a minor has volunteered for the board position of member at large (Truett Dupuis). The board researched these proposals and have and found they are in fact legal and we have voted and endorsed them. As such we have chosen to amend the PWC Bylaws as follows:

  • žAllows multiple persons to serve in one position (multiple people serving will only get one vote)
  • žTeenagers can serve on board as provided by law
  • žAllows one teenager per family to vote

A copy of the proposed bylaws are attached. The board has voted to pass these changes. Changes are highlighted in blocks. A general vote on these changes will be held at the January 4th general meeting.
