Dear MAR-AMTA Community,

We are writing to inform you of an upcoming electronic ballot that will be sent out in two weeks to vote on a merging of the Constitution and Bylaws into one document.  

Here you will find the current constitution and bylaws.

The measure to be voted on is:

Do you agree to merging the Constitution into the Bylaws as shown here? 

(Please note that highlighted areas in this document indicate logistical changes such as numbering that will be revised if the merge passes. The original numbering is still there for voters to have transparency of the process.) 

Attached is a rationale for merging the Constitution and Bylaws into one document, and within that, a link to a proposed merged document. A key point from the rationale is that, “No actual meaning of the two documents has been changed in this process; it has very much been editorial in nature, with the primary goal of making the document more comprehensive, more concise, and generally more understandable for the reader.” A huge thank you to Donna Polen for doing all the work of putting this together!

While we usually vote on Constitution and Bylaws changes at regional conference (as per those documents) , we are sending out this editorial change early so that we can proceed with our other work (critical discourse analysis, plain language summary, other edits and changes) and to minimize confusion when doing our regular voting that occurs at our regional conference, in Niagara Falls March 2023. (https://mar-amta.org/conference/)

Please note that you must be a member of MAR-AMTA in order to vote. We understand if you are unable or uninclined to become a member and invite you to participate through sharing feedback and ideas. Thank you in advance for your participation in this process. Please reach out to presidentelect@maramta.org with any questions or concerns.

Best,

Audrey Hausig (Constitution and Bylaws Committee Chair)
