Vote on the Proposed Amendments to the A.S.A.T.T. Bylaws
Yearly, the Policy and Procedure Manual/Bylaws Committee members review both documents to insure that the policies and procedures as well as the A.S.A.T.T. Bylaws are current and reflective of our society’s functions. Upon completion of the annual review of the A.S.A.T.T. Policy and Procedure manual, several revisions were indicated. The A.S.A.T.T. Board of Directors have voted for an approval of the suggested revisions ~ which leads to proposed amendments to the A.S.A.T.T. Bylaws. The Policy and Procedure manual is required to be in direct correlation with the A.S.A.T.T. Bylaws. For the active members of A.S.A.T.T. to accept the suggested amendments to the Bylaws, this information has been posted on the website and was presented to the attending membership at the Annual Business Meeting that took place on Saturday, October 11, 2014 for discussion. We are now posting the official online ballot for accepting or rejecting the proposed Bylaw amendments. The Ballot will be posted for 30 days. Please review the amendments, and then cast your vote to accept or reject.
