We last updated our by-laws in 2017, fixing some reasonably important problems. There are a few things in the current by-laws which don’t correspond to our current or (in our opinion) best practice.

Here are the changes:

  • The eastern border is I5, not 5th avenue.
  • An ambiguity in granting life membership was resolved; now it’s clearly the board’s decision.
  • We cleared up advisory trustee appointments.
  • The nominating committee doesn’t have to come up with two nominees (they didn’t anyhow).
  • Some advisory trustee “duties” which they don’t really do were deleted.

Here are the proposed new bylaws, in word with change tracking on.

Here is the new document in pdf.

And here it is in plain text.
