    Although I have not studied the by-law changes in detail, I generally support the move to give greater authority to Council by changing section representation to the "senate" model, by making the terms three-years and rotating new members, and by having council appoint some key committee members.  I support those changes.

    I also think that all of Steve Zeff's suggestions, particularly those regarding follow-up by past Presidents, timing of the Business meeting, and contested elections, are good. 

    I don't know whether we need to have a mechanism for minority reports in the advocacy position section, but I am a bit skeptical that we would find many positions that the AAA can advocate for that have totally unanimous support by the members.  I hope that we can have a mechanism for minority positions, but am not sure how to go about guaranteeing that mechanism.

    Hi Julie,

     

    Live and learn....I tried to copy and paste and the paste kept going automatically to the Google bar. When I typed that incredibly complicated and long address myself in the top bar (the actual browser) THEN it worked.....

     

    Thank you for responding

     

    Sue.
