Chapter bylaws amendments adopted

Members of the chapter have approved bylaws amendments to change the calendar for the term of office of chapter officers and directors.  2013 will be a transition year for the change. The current officers and directors term of office was extended to run until December 31, 2013. This means that chapter elections will be held in late fall/early winter rather than late spring as they have been.

Beginning in 2014, the officers of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Immediate Past President will be for two-year terms beginning January 1. The chapter’s budget/fiscal year also runs on a calendar year.  Directors will serve one-year terms.

The proposals were submitted to the membership to aid in program planning, fiscal management and leadership development.
