Our bylaws have come to the point in time that edits and additions would be appropriate. Thanks to our 2016-2017 Ethics and Bylaws Chair Yolanda Price for her work in taking several years worth of information and crafting an updated edition of the SDSCA bylaws.
These bylaws cannot, and should not, fully be adopted by SDSCA without the opportunity for our members to review, add input, and vote on them. You will find the updated bylaws, with rationale for the suggested changes and additions, below. Should you have questions or concerns with these bylaws, you will have until 12:00 am on Friday May 5th, 2017 to make comments by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
On May 5th, 2017 at the SDSCA luncheon, SDSCA members will have the opportunity to vote in favor of updating the bylaws as submitted or to vote against the proposed changes. For members not able to attend the SDCA conference, we will have paper votes that you may download and mail in, beginning May 5th. All votes will need to be hand submitted or postmarked by May 22nd, 2017 to be considered valid.
We thank you for your help in ensuring that our professional organization can continue functioning in a positive and productive manner.
