Biography

CALL Bylaws Committee 2017- 2018 Annual Report

There were no other committee members this year, as it was anticipated that the Committee would have very little work.  The anticipation was accurate; no amendments to the bylaws were pursued this year.  The President requested a report in November on the process for amending the bylaws.  I submitted that report on 11/8/2017, recommending that, in view of the process for approving a proposed amendment and scheduling an election, it was very late in the 2017-2018 year to propose and pass an amendment, and that a better time frame could be achieved in the 2018-2019 year.  The Committee had no further business.
