Proposed Constitutional Amendment

During the October 27, 2009 chapter business meeting, Steve Lewin proposed an amendment to the constitution which would allow inactive members to have the right to hold chapter office. Steve described current circumstances which were making it difficult to recruit new members to the executive board. Members who no longer officiate actively still serve the chapter and membership as assessors but the current constitutional framework prevents these individuals from serving on the executive board.

In addition, we discussed making minor administrative changes which would allow the chapter president the discretion of appointing board members in cases where elected board members vacate during their term. Present wording requires the chapter president to fill vacancies via appointment. The executive board strongly recommends membership endorse the modifications as indicated here (color coded changes).

This notice satisfies the requirement for written notification to the membership. The modification will be voted up at the next scheduled business meeting on November 16, 2009.
