The ASSP WPA Executive Committee has conducted a review of the Chapter By-laws. The ASSP recommends a periodic review of the Chapter By-laws. The last review and update was when ASSP changed its name in 2018, then in 2019 when the geographic area was slightly changed.
Using the model By-laws developed by the Society, the Chapter Executive Committee transferred most information from the current By-laws to the model by-laws. The biggest changes were making the Executive Officers (President, Vie President, Secretary, Treasurer, and the HOD Delegates two-year terms instead of just one year. (See ARTICLE IV – ORGANIZATION, sections 5 and 8). Nominations and elections are conducted in April instead of in March (See ARTICLE VI – NOMINATION AND ELECTION OF OFFICERS, section 5).
The By-laws have been reviewed and approved by ASSP, Region 8 Vice President, and the Keystone Area Director.
The Chapter membership must vote on the Chapter By-laws for them to be approved by the Chapter. A two-thirds (2/3) affirmative vote of voting members is required for approval.
The link to the amended by-laws is here. Please review them before casting your vote.
The voting will be open through June 18, 2021.
Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to vote!
