In order to increase the participation of the membership in the running of HAS, the third bylaw amendment, if adopted, will increase the number of Directors to seven (7) from the current five (5), with one of the Directors being a Student Member under 21 years of age.

A quorum of the HAS BOD has voted unanimously to recommend that the Membership of HAS vote to adopt the following proposed amendment to the bylaws:

Article VII, Section I Paragraph 2 Directors at Large of the By-Laws shall be amended to read as follows:

2 DIRECTORS AT LARGE. In addition to ex officio members, six regular members of the Society and one student member of the Society under the age of 21 are elected to serve on the Board of Directors as Directors at Large, with the right to vote on all matters.

The current Bylaws can be found here:

All members are encouraged to post questions or comments about the proposed amendment to this thread and each will be addressed.

Best Regards;

Don Selle

The intent of this amendment is to provide more opportunities for HAS members to participate in the leadership of the organization. In addition, we have an active and growing group of Student members, and the bylaw committee felt that ensuring that they were represented on the Board of Directors would only strengthen HAS.
