The amendment has passed.
ASIS&T members have voted
overwhelmingly in favor of the 2014 Amendment to the ASIS&T
Constitution to shorten the number of days in which ballots are to be
counted and received. This change makes the constitution symmetrical with the bylaws which were previously amended.
Below is the article and the amendment that
has been passed.
Article III. Amendment
This Constitution may be amended by a vote of three quarters of the Members of the Society voting on the proposal of change. Such proposal may be by petition of a minimum of 35 Members, filed with the Executive Director, or by proposal of the Board of Directors. Such proposal shall be voted upon within 100 days of the date of the petition or of the proposal of the Board. The Executive Director will prepare and send a copy of the proposed amendment, together with ballot information, to each Member, setting forth a date which shall be not less than 30
60 nor more than 35 70 days from the sending of the ballot, by which latter date all ballots which are to be counted must be received. If approved, the amendment shall be effective as of the date of the next regularly scheduled meeting of the board of directors.
Thank you for voting!
ASIS&T Executive Director
