OKSI Proposed, Restated Bylaws
OKSI Members,
As discussed at the October 2018 Fall BoD and HoD meeting the task force of Paul Thompson, Denis Mink and Deanna Oliphant were assigned to prepare the new Restated Bylaws. We have now completed our work. The proposed bylaws were submitted to the BOD for review.  At a meeting that took place on Thursday March 14, 2019, the BOD unanimously voted to recommend to the HOD that these bylaws be adopted at its next meeting on April 6th.  
The OKSI Restated Bylaws are now being sent to you as a member organization of the OKSI House of Delegates.  We are asking that you distribute these amongst your organization as you see fit. These will also be posted to the OKS website,, and a link on the OKS Facebook page.  If you have any questions or need clarification on any item, please contact Paul, Denis and/or myself and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. The OKSI membership will have the opportunity for adoption at the April 6, 2019 Spring HoD meeting. The meeting will take place in Edmond, Oklahoma at the Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center 2833 Conference Drive, meeting check in will begin at 1 pm with the House of Delegates meeting commencing at 1:30 p.m. The submitted Bylaws have been thoroughly reviewed and formatted by the committee. The proposal has been reviewed and vetted to comply with Oklahoma Not for Profit Statute requirements. There have been numerous discussions by the committee with the USA-S Bylaw Review Committee. The submitted Bylaws have been approved by that committee pending any new proposals made by the House of Delegates in April. Only new items will require additional review by the national Bylaw Review Committee in order to be added. This would be the required procedure for any items submitted from the LSC other than those mandated by USA-S.
