Officials:

Legislation / By-Laws: There is another round of bylaws proposals. The highlights are:

  • Removal of appointed positions from the Executive BOD. These positions would be elected ay HOD along with all other positions.
  • Terms added for some positions. Certain positions like the Safe Sport Chair, DEI Chair, etc did not have Terms applied to them. All positions on the Executive committee will be 2 year terms. This does not impact term limits.
  • Removal of At-Large appointments to the Executive Committee. We felt that the best approach for the Executive Committee was to allow the HOD to elect all the positions. 
  • Housekeeping. Lots of housekeeping.
