CGSSD Votes "Yes" to Merge with SDGS

 At last Saturday's meeting at UCSD the membership voted to merge with the San Diego Genealogical Society.

Message from our President:

Good Day,   

April 18th 2015 marked a major change to the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego.  

Numerous factors were considered by the elected Officers and appointed chairpersons and directors both singularly and in conjunction with the Officers and directors of the San Diego Genealogical Society.  Following these discussions it was deemed appropriate to MERGE the two groups into a more wide ranging and beneficial Society.  

All the members of CGSSD were advised in February 2015 with a follow up in March 2015  that this MERGER would be voted on at the regular monthly meeting on April 18th 2015.  The motion was read: Should the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego MERGE with the San Diego Genealogical Society?, seconded, discussion was allowed for 45 minutes. Hearing no more requests for time to discuss, the Members in good standing voted by written ballot.  

The votes were counted in front of the Members.   The outcome: 34 YEA, 9 NAY, 2 ABSTENSIONS.  By simple majority, the MERGER recommendation passed.

The Board members of both organizations will now meet to complete the details of the MERGER process.

Please continue to associate yourself with the one entity, SDGS aka San Diego Genealogical Society in the future.

Thank you for your association with the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego.

David Tooley
President, CGSSD
