Membership Announcement:  Members of the Holland Society vote to admit women in the direct male line as full members in the Society
An historic moment for The Holland Society of New York occurred at the Annual Meeting on April 9, 2016, the Members of the Holland Society voted to admit women in the direct male line as full members in the Society. This expanded Society membership eligibility beyond sons in the direct male line to include sisters and daughters as well. The change now allows ladies to participate as full voting members of the Society for the first time since the Society's founding in 1885, although women have participated for several decades as Society Fellows and Friends as well as volunteers.
            The proposal to admit female members was submitted by Membership Committee Chair Col. Adrian T. Bogart III. The amendment to the constitution passed with 232 votes in favor and forty-four votes against.
