Annual Meeting 2010: Difference between revisions

Line 38: Line 38:


The bylaws have two contradicting statements with regard to the number of votes required to pass amendments to the bylaws.  One statement (in the Annual Meeting section) states that amendments must be passed by two-thirds majority.  In another place (the Amendments section) it states that amendments have to be passed by a simple majority.  It would make sense to pass an amendment that clarifies this language and removes the contradiction before moving on to passing further amendments.
