As you know, a Governance Review Task Force (GRTF) made up of Section and Region leaders and chaired by Past President Sue Haka has been working over the last year or so to review and suggest changes to the current AAA Bylaws. At their November meeting the Executive Committee passed a motion to send the GRTF bylaws amendment to Council for a vote on whether to send GRTF bylaws amendment recommendations to the membership for a vote. In December 2010, the members of Council approved sending this proposal to membership for a vote. Also during Fall 2010, two Amendment Petitions were submitted by Larry Crumbley, with the requisite not-less-than-100 AAA members' signatures. As required by XIV. Amendment of the AAA Bylaws, all proposed bylaws amendments are scheduled for a 90-day posting period, after which they will be put to a vote by the membership on April 11, 2011.
