Southwest Section Bylaws Amendment

The Southwest Section membership voted to make the following amendment to the Section bylaws:

Article V Elections and Officers – Section 1- Clause E – change from

“A member may be elected for no more than 2 consecutive terms in the same elected position. With the exception of the Treasurer, who may hold that office for as long as he/she desires, or until a new Treasurer is elected by the membership.”


“A member is elected for two consecutive one year terms, and does not have to run for their second term, when elected as Secretary or Treasurer. The two year terms of these two positions are staggered so they can only overlap for one year.”

View the amended bylaws here.
