Call to Membership: SOA Constitution and Bylaws Revisions

Council has been working very hard updating the SOA Strategic Plan over the last year. One piece of that work has been amending our Constitution and Bylaws. Linked here is the marked-up draft of proposed amendments to the SOA Constitution and Bylaws, as proposed by six current SOA members. These amendments will be voted on by members during the upcoming business meeting that will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019 at the SOA Annual Conference in Akron. Members are invited to bring their questions and comments up at the time of the business meeting or send them to me directly at rheise@co.greene.oh.us. All questions and comments that I receive will be brought up at the business meeting in May.

I hope to see many of you in a few weeks in Akron!
