NASSS Bylaws – Approved November 2015

The above documents include an outline of the proposed changes to the bylaws as well as the most recent version of our bylaws passed in 2015.  Please note there are 3 proposed changes to the bylaws (with rationale) and 2 new amendments to the bylaws. Each of the 5 amendments (3 changes, 2 new) will be voted on during the business meeting held during the conference on Friday night.  I appreciate your review of the proposed changes.

According to the current bylaws:
