AAUW NYS Bylaws Amendments

Today I have been working on the amendments to the bylaws that the Board of Directors approved at their fall board meeting over this past weekend. Although it appears that there are many changes, most are strictly for brevity or clarity. The Nominating Committee amendments are the most significant proposed changes. Being that the Nominating Committee is one of the most important committees we have been trying to make it function better than it has in the past. The board has also approved the formation of an ad-hoc committee to study the Nominating Committee and create guidelines for candidate selction and operation of the committee. Having served as chair this year I can tell you that there needs to be more direction given.
