Like you, we have been paying close attention to the news about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and talking at length about its impact on our meetings. We recognize that the rapidly changing situation surrounding the Coronavirus is raising many questions about attending/holding meetings. We are closely monitoring the latest updates from CDC and our local health authorities with respect to travel and activities. At this time, we are planning on moving our April meeting to May 14th.
Our top priority is protecting the health and well-being of our chapter members and our local communities. As we all adapt to the new realities this situation is creating, please continue to follow the latest guidance from organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, as well as information from our local health and government authorities. Be sure to check ASSP’s website frequently for updates as well.
Bylaws Update (will be on upcoming e-ballot)
Feb 29, 2020
Over the course of the year, it became apparent that our chapter needed to slightly amend the current bylaws. The proposed bylaws change is to add the words “relationships” and “community” into Article II, Section 2, Item 1.d as shown below. The executive board has voted and approved of this change to our bylaws and now needs to be voted upon by the chapter membership. You will see this item on the e-ballot you will receive next month to vote for the upcoming 2020-2021 chapter secretary.
ARTICLE II – PURPOSE
Section 2 In fulfilling its purposes, the Chapter shall have the following objectives within the geographical area:
- d) To foster relationships with local community organizations of related disciplines.
