Five amendments have been proposed to the AAPG Bylaws for consideration at the meeting of the House of Delegates on 31 May 2015 in Denver, Colorado. After publishing the proposed amendments on February 27, several members questioned whether the proposed changes to Article II, Section 11, would be handled as one amendment or two.

The HoD leadership intends that these changes be evaluated separately by the delegates. The exhibits were updated March 2 to reflect that fact.

Please contact your delegate with your comments and questions.

Review the Proposed Bylaws Changes now.

The House of Delegates passed two of the three proposed Bylaw Amendments, and all 5 new resolutions at its HOD Annual Meeting in New Orleans, along with another new resolution pertaining to the Bylaws that passed under new business. Both the "Elected Editor Amendment" and the "Grievance Procedures Amendment" were passed by more than the necessary 2/3-supermajority vote.
