Proposed Bylaws Changes
Full text of the proposed Bylaws changes:
Whereas, the current Bylaws of CPSR (available at http://www.cpsr.org/about/policies/bylaws/) require that the board have twelve Directors At-Large, who are elected by membership or appointed by the board to fill mid-term vacancies of elected directors, plus up to four Special Directors appointed by the board; and
Whereas, the large number of board members, combined with their geographic dispersion and CPSR's limited finances, has put strains on the ability of the board to meet and conduct business both in person and electronically, as well as on the CPSR budget; and it has proved difficult to fill all of the elected board seats with well-qualified members who have sufficient time to devote to board duties;
Now therefore it is resolved that...
The Bylaws of CPSR be amended to state that the Board shall consist of not less than eight nor more than fourteen Directors. Eight to ten shall be elected as Directors at Large by the membership. The Board of Directors shall have the power to expand the Board by appointing up to four additional Directors, known as Special Directors.
Proposed Bylaws changes:
Should the CPSR Bylaws be amended to reduce
(a) the required number of Directors At-Large from 12 to a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 10, and
(b) the maximum number of Directors (including Special Directors) from 16 to 14.
