3. Please read the following from Article II(4) (Membership–Section B) of our charter. Meeting attendance is extremely important.

(4) Academy members are expected to attend each scheduled meeting of the Leadership Academy.

a. In the event that a member has another obligation at the time of a meeting, the member must submit in writing an explanation for the reason that he or she was absent. The member must submit this written notification to the Leadership Academy coordinator either prior to the meeting or within one week after the meeting. (Provide formal meeting excusal notices to Mr. Williams and all committee meeting excusal forms directly to the appropriate committee chairperson.) b. If no written notification is presented, the absence shall be considered unexcused.
