The League unanimously elected to amend the bylaws as proposed at the 2006 Convention.
From the October 2006 Enigma:
PROPOSED BYLAW AMENDMENT — by Kray
The following bylaws amendment (with minor changes in wording) was authorized by the business meeting at the 2006 convention for placement on the fall ballot. It has two principal functions.
CURRENT BYLAW 4: A business meeting shall be held each summer at the annual convention. The order of business at the meeting shall be as follows: reading of the minutes of the previous meeting; reading of the names of members who have died since the previous meeting, and a moment of silence in their honor; reports from the treasurer, and from other officers, individuals, and committees, as appropriate; unfinished business; new business, including presentation of offers to host the following summer's convention, and election of the same; miscellaneous announcements; adjournment.
PROPOSED REPLACEMENT: “new business, including presentation of offers to host future conventions, and election of the same;”
CURRENT BYLAW 6(A): A convention of the membership shall be held each summer. The sites of future conventions shall be decided at the annual business meetings, and a business meeting shall not be adjourned if no site for the following year's convention has been elected, unless the assembly has authorized, by majority vote, a committee to select the site at a later date.
PROPOSED REPLACEMENT: “and a business meeting shall not be adjourned if sites have not been elected for both of the two subsequent years' conventions, unless the assembly has authorized, by majority vote, a committee to select the site(s) at a later date.”
CURRENT BYLAW 6(B): At a business meeting, any member may present to the assembly an offer to host a future convention. When all offers have been presented, and after appropriate debate, the assembly shall vote, and the offer receiving the plurality of votes shall be elected.
PROPOSED REPLACEMENT: “When all offers for a particular year's convention have been presented, and after appropriate debate, a motion may be entertained to vote to select a convention site from among the offers presented.”
