At the Society’s Business Meetings on October 29, 2016, and September 23, 2017, several proposals were discussed, modified as needed, and then unanimously approved by members in attendance. The procedure used in introducing these changes (Proposals 2016.1a through 2017.5, below) is prescribed in the following passage in the Constitution of September 15, 2012: “ARTICLE 11, AMENDMENTS. 1. This constitution may be amended by motion made, seconded, and passed by a majority vote of the members present at the annual meeting and concurred in by a 3/4 affirmative vote of the Board.”
The adopted changes are detailed in the PDF attachment. They are intended to improve certain procedures, and to define others. The new passages are recommended for assimilation into the next draft of the SLS Constitution.
