At the 2019 winter meeting and electronic vote following, the Board of Directors approved the following proposed changes to the bylaws for a vote in the 2019 Board of Directors Election. The ballot will include 2019 board candidates as well as the following proposed changes to the bylaws. Active, Senior-Active and Life members should submit ballots before the May 1 elections.
Bylaws Amendment No. 1
The proposed wording change matches the voting rights provisions in paragraph 3.3 and the officer qualifications in paragraph 8.2 with the director qualifications of paragraph 7.1.
Delete the following language from paragraph 7.1:
“Only Active members in good standing for at least three years may be elected as Directors.”
And replace it with the following:
“Only Active or Life members in good standing for at least three years immediately preceding the election may be elected as Directors.”
