Biannual Bylaw Review


Every two years we required to review our society bylaws. The executive board completed this review last week and submits our recommended changes to the membership for your review and approval.

Please read the attached revised Bylaws. The current Bylaws can be found here.

Here are the changes the Executive Board approved:

Article II, Section 2, Paragraph C: omitted the need to have a two thirds majority to give a lifetime membership.

Article IV, Section 1, Paragraph A: added, “acts as a delegate to any national society which the Society belongs.”

Article IV, Section 4, Paragraph D: added “to the Auditor as designated by the Executive Board.”

Per our bylaws, we must allow 3 weeks for the membership to review prior to a vote. Voting will occur on December 5, 2020 at our Holiday Show & Tell meeting. Early voting is available online 1 – 5 December for those not attending the meeting. Online voting ends at 0900 on 5 December.

If you have a question or concern, please post them in the discussion area of this article. You must be logged into to post a comment.
