Congratulations to the new President-Elect and Board members, and to our new and continuing Vice Presidents! On behalf of the CAS, I want to thank all the candidates in the 2010 election for their willingness to run and, if elected, to serve.
Following are the voting results on the five proposals for changes to the CAS Constitution and Bylaws:
|Approve revision of Constitution - Orderly removal of an elected officer or director|
|Approve revision of Constitution and Bylaws - Mechanism for members to initiate amendments|
|Approve revision of Constitution and Bylaws - Designate an officer as Secretary-Treasurer|
|Approve revision of Constitution and Bylaws - Align Constitution and Bylaws with current practices|
|Approve revision of Constitution and Bylaws - Eliminate antiquated terms and redundancy|
The CAS Constitution and Bylaws may be amended by an affirmative vote of 10% of the Fellows or two-thirds of the Fellows voting, whichever is greater. Therefore, all five of the proposals were approved by the Fellows.
