AESA is a member-organization. Members are asked to vote on all proposed amendments to the Bylaws according to the currently approved AESA Bylaws.
Each ESA organization is allowed one vote and the CEO for the organization is designated as the person to cast the vote.
Bylaws Amendments Proposed by Executive Council
Voting is now open for members to weigh-in on bylaw amendments.
The major proposed changes to the Bylaws (document attached to the online ballot) include:
- Updating the descriptions of AESA membership;
- Adding a non-voting member representing the State Association Executive Directors on the Executive Council;
- Allowing that amendments to the Bylaws may be made with a three-fourths majority of the Executive Council; and,
- Allowing Executive Council meetings via teleconferencing with electronic voting.
There are other minor changes, all of which are highlighted in the document attached to the online ballot.
AESA's Executive Council voted to submit these proposed Bylaw changes to AESA voting membership at the Council’s summer 2018 meeting following a second and final reading. These proposed changes have also been reviewed extensively with legal counsel.
