Bylaws Change to be Presented at the Annual Meeting


By AHRA Staff

May 2013—At its March 23, 2013 meeting, the AHRA Board of Directors approved a motion that sends a recommended bylaws change to the AHRA membership.

This change addresses the inclusion of the immediate Past President on the Executive Committee as described in Article V-Board of Directors.

Current

Executive Committee: There shall be an Executive Committee consisting of the President, President-Elect, Finance Director, Chief Executive Officer and two directors appointed by the Board.

The Executive Committee may act for the Board of Directors pursuant to delegation of authority by the Board of Directors and shall be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Association, in accordance with policy established by the Board of Directors.

A majority of the voting members of the Executive Committee shall constitute a quorum.  The President or any two members of the Executive Committee may call such meetings of the Executive Committee as the business of the Association may require.

Proposed Amendment

Executive Committee: There shall be an Executive Committee consisting of the President, President-Elect, immediate Past President, Finance Director, Chief Executive Officer and two directors appointed by the Board.

The Executive Committee may act for the Board of Directors pursuant to delegation of authority by the Board of Directors and shall be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Association, in accordance with policy established by the Board of Directors.

A majority of the voting members of the Executive Committee shall constitute a quorum.  The President or any two members of the Executive Committee may call such meetings of the Executive Committee as the business of the Association may require.

The role of the Executive Committee is not affected by this change.

In accordance with Article VIII-Amendments, the change will be presented to the quorum of members present at the 2013 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Two thirds of this quorum must approve the change for it to take effect.

Any questions regarding this change to the AHRA bylaws should be sent to Ed Cronin, AHRA CEO, at ecronin@ahraonline.org.
