Constitution and Bylaws Committee
On behalf of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee, I would like to thank the House of Delegates for the floor discussions and the vote on the dues scheduling and billing amendment during this year’s annual meeting. As most House members know, the proposed amendment to Article XIII, Section 3 dealing with the notification of the annual dues to each AAPG Member, Associate, or Student was passed by the House. Although the amendment was a relatively simple change to the bylaws, it is only a small part of the many proposals that were forwarded to the committee for discussion this year. Many of the other proposals were much more controversial, and required much thought and discussion by the committee members. I personally would like to thank all of the committee members for their participation in these discussions and for their patience with the committee chair. This year’s committee members are David Entzminger (Vice Chair), John Brooks, John Hogg, John Jordan, Terry O’Hare, and Margaret Anne Rogers.
I also want to thank David Hawk for bringing some joviality to the meeting this year.
