Proposed Bylaw Amendments

 

As part of a regular review of FASFAA Policies and Procedures, a committee was named by President Alexander to examine the current FASFAA Bylaws.  A thorough review was completed and the results were shared with the Executive Board.  The FASFAA Executive Board is unanimously recommending the following bylaw amendments to the membership.  In keeping with the terms of the bylaws, a majority of those voting must approve each amendment for it to be in effect.  Membership will receive an email providing 30 day notice as required of any bylaw change.  For the ease of members, the amendments are divided into sections below representing similar changes. 

The current association bylaws may be found here.  A complete red-lined version of the proposal bylaws may be found here.  Finally, a clean copy of the newly proposed bylaws may be located here

In the proposed amendments below, inserted text will be indicated by underlined font, deleted text will be indicated by strikethrough, and notes for consideration will be marked with bold font.
