Vote on a Bylaw Change
At the 2015 annual business meeting, NEA members will be asked to vote on three proposed amendments to the NEA bylaws. In general, the amendments proposed in 2015 are procedural in nature. They replace outdated language in regards to how NEA communicates amendments to our bylaws and how elections are conducted. With the methods of communication and voting now in use by NEA, the proposed changes seem warranted.
Click to view the proposed amendments, which, per NEA bylaws Article 9, were submitted to the NEA Secretary on January 20, 2015.
Current NEA bylaws can be found on the website here: http://newenglandarchivists.org/bylaws
