Proposed By-Law Amendments

During our May 4 Special Membership Meeting, several bylaw amendments were introduced by our newly convened bylaw committee and will be voted on at our July 6 General Membership Meeting. The proposed amendments aim to streamline our bylaw amendment process, reduce barriers to members’ involvement, improve the process for joining committees, and update various housekeeping items. New items are bolded and underlined.
