The Executive Committee has proposed some changes to the chapter by-laws.
The Executive Committee has proposed some changes to the chapter by-laws. These changes are being made to clarify some redundancies and conflicts in the by-laws and to ensure that officers are aware of their responsibilities. The changes have been reviewed by our Society Area and Regional Directors and approved by the Executive Committee on May 2, 2013. The next step in the approval process is this posting to the general membership for comments for a period of not less than 30 days. The full draft by-laws are posted on the Chapter Website for review. After the 30 day comment period the proposed changes will be presented at a regular chapter meeting with a quorum of 5% of the members in good standing. A 2/3 majority vote at that meeting is required to approve the changes. It is expected that this will be brought before the members at the September meeting. Please send any questions or comments to Bob Holthausen, By-laws Committee Chair (email@example.com).
