AMCHP Board Approves Two By-Laws Changes
AMCHP Board of Directors approved two By-Laws changes at its November 2008 meeting. The first provision changed the By-Laws so that any Director could serve as Chair of the Governance Committee. Previously, the Governance Committee could only be chaired by an At-Large Director which limited the number of potential chairpeople and did not encourage leadership development among the Board (Article XII, Section 3). The second change recognized a sunset provision meant to stagger Family Representative terms. This provision takes effect after the February 2009 Annual Conference and allows for two Family Representatives to stagger their terms so that both do not rotate off the Board at the same time (Article V, Section 3.a). Both changes will be presented at the AMCHP Business Meeting during our 2009 Annual Conference. For a current copy of the By-Laws, visit here.
