At the June 7, 2021 AAPAC meeting, board officers discussed proposed changes to AAPAC’s current governing bylaws. Per the current process, any changes to the bylaws must be discussed first and then voted on in a subsequent meeting. The June 7 meeting represents AAPAC’s first open discussion of changes to the bylaws.
Voting on the proposed changes will take place in a special meeting called for just that purpose. This meeting will be held on in September, over zoom (date and time TBD).
Here are our current bylaws and a draft revised version of the bylaws.
The changes to the bylaws are described below.
|Remove items not strictly relevant to bylaws. This includes: initial charter; Executive Committee roles and responsibilities; Building representative roles and responsibilities, and section titled “Issues and Goals.”||Over time, roles, responsibilities, issues, and goals change. These sections have been moved into separate governing documents and so do not need to be part of the bylaws.|
|Simplify membership rules||To reflect current structure|
|Revise member roles||To reflect current structure|
|Remove areas for voting||To reflect current activities|
|Revise voting requirements||To require only simple majority in all cases except removal/complaint against a member|
|Remove requirement of transitional meeting||To reflect current practice|
|Simplify language regarding “Grounds for Removal”||For ease of use|
