jurisdiction. If the Board entertains jurisdiction of the charges, it

members at the ensuing Club meeting which considers the recommendation

meeting. The President shall read the charges and the findings and recommendations,
and shall invite the defendant, if present, to speak in his own behalf.

the breed may be amended provided a copy of the proposed amendment has
been mailed by the Secretary to each member in good standing on the
date of mailing, accompanied by a ballot on which he may indicate his
choice for or against the action to be taken. The notice shall specify
a date not less than 30 days after the date of mailing by which date
the ballots must be returned to the Secretary to be counted. The favorable
vote of 2/3 of the members in good standing who return valid ballots
within the time limit shall be required to effect any such amendment.

may remain secret, each voter, after marking his ballot, shall seal
