we reviewed the changes with the attendees and committed to bring forward an updated set of bylaws. The
Board of Directors has approved the new bylaws and will now bring forward the new bylaws to the membership
On Sunday May 21 we will be circulating an online ballot, it will be a simple vote to adopt the new set of bylaws.
