RRS Constitution – 2013 Proposed Constitutional Amendments

Proposed Constitutional Amendments

A series of proposed Constitutional Amendments has been developed by the Constitution and Bylaws Committee chaired by John Zimbrick. These have been presented to the Executive Committee and to the Governing Council. I am now distributing them to you and all other members of RRS at least three weeks prior to the annual meeting, as specified in the Constitution. There will be an opportunity for discussion at the Business Meeting at noon on Monday,
September 16th in New Orleans. Subsequently, within 8 weeks of the meeting, all Full and Emeritus Members will vote online for approval or rejection of the final versions of the amendments. It is anticipated that this will be a series of votes on individual amendments, with some clustering for related items. Approval of each amendment requires an affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of the Members voting.

The links below provide access to three files

These files are located under the Governance tab– RRS Constitution – 2013 Proposed Constitutional Amendments on the RRS website.

The proposed amendments include addition of a new class of Membership (Honorary); minor editorial changes that do not materially alter the Constitution or the operation of the Society; and addition of a new section on Contingency Procedures that allows the Society to continue operation in the face of extraordinary circumstances.

It is requested that you review these documents and come to the Business Meeting prepared to discuss them. Given the fact that most voting members will not be able to attend the Business Meeting, it is anticipated that an online discussion board will be open during the 8 weeks between the meeting and the launch of the vote, so as to provide an opportunity for wider discussion and sharing of views.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the proposed amendments prior to the RRS business meeting in New Orleans.
