Board Proposes Changes to Bylaws – For Member Action October 21, 2018

The SROA Board of Directors held a strategic planning session in March 2017, and since then has been pursuing active implementation of the strategic objectives. Additionally, the Board periodically reviews and updates its Board Handbook, a compendium of policies and procedures that guide Board officers and directors in meeting their roles and responsibilities.

Given the changes that have resulted from implementation of the strategic plan and updates and revisions to the Board Handbook, and the objectives to ensure the Society continues to meet the needs of its members while providing exemplary association leadership, the Board decided that a review and revision of the Society Bylaws should be conducted. Additionally, the Board requested that legal counsel review proposed changes and suggest changes to ensure the Bylaws reflect current membership association practices.

The Board subsequently approved unanimously changes to the current Bylaws that are deemed reasonable and appropriate. The Board will ask the membership to approve the proposed changes at the Annual Business Meeting of Members on October 21, 2018, at the SROA 2009 Annual Meeting, Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk, San Antonio, Texas.

A summary of changes and the proposed revised Bylaws are posted in the Members Network section.
