What is the SCTA-BNI?
The Parent Corporation is the SCTA, a non-profit volunteer organization. We have only one paid employee; she runs the SCTA/BNI office. Five officers of the SCTA board (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Sgt. at Arms) are nominated by the membership of the association and elected by ballots mailed to all SCTA members annually. Those five elected officers appoint the rest of the board members from those of the general membership that are willing to serve.
To be an SCTA member, one must be a member of one of the affiliated clubs. Each club is entitled to club representatives according to club size and they represent the clubs at the reps/board meetings. All of the rules, policies, etc. are adopted by SCTA board vote. The rep. system advises the board as to the feelings of the clubs / club members. The only thing the SCTA general membership votes on is officers and bylaw changes.
The BNI is a separate corporation under SCTA board control with their own bylaws and subordinate board. The BNI is charged with the responsibility of planning and organizing the Salt events and those logistic matters pertaining. The BNI organizes Bonneville events and then hands the reins over to the SCTA, who conducts the event under their rules.
The SCTA board appoints the BNI officers; all must be SCTA board members and they choose who will serve in what capacity amongst themselves. All decisions made by the BNI board are done by consensus. The BNI makes neither rules nor policy; this is all done by the SCTA board. Being a member of BNI is akin to joining the discount club at a store IE: by joining and helping to support the cause, it gives you the right to participate in the event(s).
