Adoption and Amendment of Bylaws
Section 1. These Bylaws may be amended by 2/3 vote of mail ballots
received or of the Chapter members present at any regular meeting of
the Chapter, provided notice of all proposed changes has been mailed
to all members at least 30 days prior to: (a) the closing date for
receiving these mail ballots, or (b) the date of the meeting at which
the vote is to be taken.
Section 2. Amendments shall, unless otherwise provided therein,
take effect when it is determined that a majority of the votes cast
are favorable. The Chapter Secretary shall notify the members of the
Section 3. No Bylaw provision or amendment may be adopted which is
not in keeping with the Society Bylaws of the Chapter. Upon official
notification by the Society that a provision or amendment is not in
keeping, and after due opportunity for hearing the Chapter, such
provision or amendment shall be void and of no effect.
Section 4. Any changes required by the Internal Revenue service in
order to establish or maintain status of the Society or the Chapter
as an educational and scientific organization under section 501(c)(3)

approved amendment to these Bylaws. The Secretary shall notify each
Chapter member of such change(s) and reasons therefore, and provide
revised text of the Bylaws.
These Bylaws are revised and adopted by vote of membership at the
Winter Annual meeting January 5, 2000.
