SIS Bylaws Revision
Goals & Objectives:
This revision eliminates the secretary and treasurer positions, and better defines the duties and terms of office for the president and vice-president. These positions may be restored at any time via the same amendment process used to eliminate them.
To amend the bylaws, the majority of the SIS must approve the revision and 15 members must sign a petition that will be submitted to the Board for approval. This is your vote to approve or disapprove.
