  • changes to sections 20, 21, 22, and 23 that change the nomination process and now include a call for nominations 45 days prior to the AGM and close the nomination period seven (7) days prior to the AGM.

The amended bylaws are attached for review. Members wanting a marked up copy of the changes may contact the executive director during business hours.
