HOELSCHER-BUXKEMPER FAMILY HERITAGE ASSOCIATION BY-LAWS
For the first time, the Hoelscher-Buxkemper Family is operating under formal By-Laws as passed at the 1994 Reunion. The full statement of the By-Laws is lengthy, however here are some highlights.
The name of the organization is “Hoelscher-Buxkemper Family Heritage Association,” and the purpose is to establish unity for the preservation of the heritage of the family. The two stated objectives are to collect, analyze, disseminate and preserve genealogical, historical and biographical data pertaining to the family and to organize and promote attendance at the biennial reunions. All persons descended from Anton and Mary Katherine Hoelscher are members of the Family Heritage Association.
Whereas it had been customary for the Reunion Chairperson to serve as the Chairperson of the family organization, the By-Laws provide for a separate President. Other officers are: Vice President, Secre tary-Treasurer, and Custodian of Records. The officers are elected by the board at the meeting in odd-numbered (non-Reunion) years. Committees include: Reunion, Newsletter, Family History Book, Research, and Membership Roster (names and addresses).
The Board consists of one or more Directors from geographical areas where the number of residents warrants representation. Regular meetings of the Board are once a year: during the Reunion in even-numbered years, and the second Sunday after Easter in odd-numbered years.
