Per National AMTA Bylaws, we will require a 2/3 vote to approve the changes provided in the

Changes made to provide additional opportunity for members to volunteer.
Section 5 Meeting/Education
Changes made to bring standing rules in alignment with national bylaws and position descriptions and changes in process and responsibility of the Assembly of Delegates.
PROPOSE TO ADD NEW SECTION 7.
Section 7. Chapter Elections
The Indiana Chapter shall hold online elections in accordance with AMTA Bylaws and Policy.
Rationale for adding Section 7. Chapter Elections:
This change proposes that the chapter move from conducting elections at our annual meeting to conducting online elections. Online Elections would provide an opportunity for all AMTA Professional Members in Indiana to vote for elected chapter board positions and delegates electronically. Currently more than 50% of AMTA chapters are conducting their elections electronically, with an increase in voter participation.
Additional information will be provided at the meeting. We hope you will attend and exercise your member right to vote on this standing rule. If this passes, the chapter will conduct online elections in 2020.
