BYLAW AMENDMENTS OPEN FOR 30 DAY REVIEW

bylaws

Bylaws may not be the sexiest of topics but they are an extremely important document that defines purpose, responsibilities, rights, requirements and fundamental rules that govern the Association. Bylaws are a legal document protecting the Association in times of conflict. The bylaws of our Association distinguish us from other geospatial/land records conferences and organizations.

The bylaws will be open to review and comment for the next 30 days (January 13th). Email your comments to Past-President Peter Strand. Once the comment period is up, the Board will review and possibly incorporate any suggestions received. The bylaws will then be sent to the membership for a vote to be adopted.

I will outline the two changes below, but I encourage you to download the pdf and read them. (Download Proposed Bylaws)

  • In section 5.2, the term shall has been change to may. This will allow for increased flexibility concerning business meetings at Regional Meetings.
  • In section 6.12, we address the procedure for filling vacant positions of elective officers and board members
