[Ed. note: Highlights from the January committee report to the Executive Board.]

BYLAWS
Konstantin Gurevich and David Bynog, Co-Chairs

COMPLETED ACTIVITIES
In the fall of 2007, the committee prepared the bylaws amendment that would reduce the treasurer’s term from four years to three. The wording of this amendment along with the justification was approved by the board, and the amendment was forwarded to the N&E Committee for inclusion in the 2008 ballot.

CONTINUING ACTIVITIES
At the board’s request, the committee prepared the amendment that would remove from the bylaws the statement that membership dues cover the calendar year, thus allowing for rolling due dates. The wording of this amendment has been submitted to the board.

The committee also did a preliminary survey of the bylaws to identify the articles that will have to be amended should the board adopt  the open elections  policy. The findings were reported to the board.

ACTIONS REQUIRED BY THE BOARD
The committee is presently awaiting comments from the board concerning the proposed wording of the above amendment.

QUESTIONS FOR THE BOARD
If the board adopts the open elections policy, the committee will need extensive and detailed instructions on the new procedures in order to amend the bylaws accordingly.
