CAYBL History

Six years ago a group of communities came together and formed CAYBL. Over the six year history it became clear that the legal entity needed to be restructured to account for its much larger size and community diversity.

In the spring of 2014 two of the directors from the “old CAYBL” dissolved the legal entity known as CAYBL. Over the next few months the communities came together and wrote a new set of bylaws and we are now forming our legal entity to make CAYBL a non-profit again.

The end result is a much more democratic structure for the communities that are involved with CAYBL.

On June 16th, 2014, 26 communities voted for the new bylaws and were given charter member status. There are several other communities that have historically participated in CAYBL that just couldn’t meet the requirement set forth to be a charter member. I assume that they will soon be “probationary members” as laid out in our new bylaws.

On July 10th, 2014 the communities came back together and voted in the initial executive directors for the organization. They are now in progress of building out the legal entity and getting things rolling.
