Transcript AURA Adopts New Guidelines (Fort Worth) The membership of AURA, Fort Worth Gay organization, has adopted a new shorter and simplified constitution which was written and submitted by the organization's Constitutional Revision Committee. The new document kept only Articles 1 and II from the original 12 articles. Article I names the organization "AURA," and Article II outlines the "Objectives and Purposes of AURA," which were established at its founding, April 6, 1973. The new constitution then has three articles which deal with membership, meetings and officers. Major change in the new document is that absolute control of the organization is given to the active members. The active members annually elect two coordinators who then appoint a director. The two coordinators will "conduct meetings, handle business, and handle finances" with approval of the membership. The duties of the director are to "be responsible for public relations" and to "serve as the representative of the membership in all external activities of the organization." The annual dues sustem and associate memberships were abolished by the new constitution. To become an active member of AURA, a person need only attend three consecutive meetings and remain active by not missing more than three consecutive meetings. A new classification, Friends of AURA," has replaced the associate memberships. Friends of AURA are defined as "those persons who shall contribute a minimum of $5 per year to the organization." The new constitution specifies that the election of the coordinators take place at the first meeting of May. However, after much discussion, the membership decided that there were too many new members to hold a meaningful election, ln order to remain within the constitution the following solution was devised and accepted: Interim coordinators Wayne Ribble and Charles Gillis were elected with the understanding that they would both resign at the July 21 meeting. At that time the membership, better informed and better acquainted with one another, could then elect two persons to fill the unexpired terms. Ken Cyr is the present director. GAY SWITCHBOARD PLANNED FOR FORT WORTH (Fort Worth) Training sessions have begun for a crisis, counseling and information telephone line to serve the Fort Worth Gay Community. The Fort Worth Gay Switchboard hopes to be inoperation by the end of May or early June and will be operational seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The Gay Switchboard is being sponsored by AURA in cooperation with Agape Metropolitan Community Church. Information about the Switchboard may be obtained by calling AURA at 338-0128.
