Proposed changes for 2019
The WSNA Bylaws/Resolutions Committee met over the course of this past biennium to review the WSNA Bylaws in depth and develop proposed amendments which were sent as recommendations to the WSNA Board of Directors for approval. Additional members were also engaged in this work via the Cabinet, Districts, Dues Task Force, and other forums to provide input and recommendations. For many sections, specific Parliamentarian and legal advice was also obtained.
There are two types of recommended amendments to the WSNA Bylaws: Non-substantive and Substantive. The Non-Substantive Amendments contain several types of minor modifications that the Bylaws Committee believes brings further clarity, simplification, and refinement to the Bylaws. Substantive Amendments are changes, new additions or deletions, and updates to existing bylaws language.
The proposed Bylaws Amendments will be reviewed during the upcoming General Assembly on May 2, 2019. Once adopted they will then be voted upon by the WSNA membership via a mailed ballot.
If you have any questions, or need further clarification, you may contact Sally Watkins, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
