PROPOSED AMENDMENT CHANGE
The National WMF Board would like to suggest a change to Article V Section 5 of the WMF Constitution for clarification purposes to reflect our tradition and the procedures of other AFLC boards. Found in your WMF Resource Manual section III. WMF Organization in the National division.
Article V OFFICERS
Officers shall be elected for a term of three years. All officers may be eligible for re-election but no officer shall hold the same office for more than two successive terms. The President and Communications Secretary shall be elected one year; the First Vice-President and the Recording Secretary the following year; the Second Vice-President and the Treasurer the third year. Newly elected officers shall officially assume their duties at the first regular WMF National Board meeting following their election.
The portion that is suggested for clarification is in bold. The proposed change is:
Article V OFFICERS
Officers shall be elected for a term of three years. All officers may be eligible for re-election but no officer shall hold the same office for more than two successive terms. The President and Communications Secretary shall be elected one year; the First Vice-President and the Recording Secretary the following year; the Second Vice-President and the Treasurer the third year. Newly elected officers shall officially assume their duties at the All Boards September meeting following their election.”
The procedure for this change is:
ARTICLE VIII Amendments
When an amendment is presented to a convention for initial approval, it shall be called a proposed amendment. When a proposed amendment has been approved by two-thirds of those present and voting at a convention, it shall be called a recommended amendment.
An amendment shall become part of the constitution only after it has been approved by two-thirds of those present and voting at one convention and then given final approval by two-thirds of those present and voting at the convention the following year. Those present at the convention shall have the opportunity to discuss proposed and recommended amendments, both when initially presented and when presented the following year for final approval. On both of these occasions those present and voting at a convention may propose changes to the amendment. Any such change must be presented in writing to the convention, and those present shall have the opportunity to discuss it. If the proposed change does not receive the support of a majority of those present and voting, the convention may vote on giving final approval to the recommended amendment in its original (unchanged) form. If a majority of those present and voting vote for the change, the change shall be incorporated into the amendment, and the amendment as changed shall be submitted as a recommended amendment for final approval to the convention the following year. A recommended amendment, when approved by a two-thirds vote of those present and voting at a convention, shall become an adopted amendment and shall be considered for all purposes as part of the constitution.
