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.
