Information About the Approved Changes

On May 8, 2020, the ABoR Board of Directors passed a motion to update Article X, Section 10 of the Association Bylaws related to the qualifications and election of the members of the Board of Directors, with the following rationale:  

Rationale: As part of its scope of work, the Governing Policy Committee has worked with legal counsel to review Article X, Section 10 of the Association Bylaws pertaining to the qualifications and election of the members of the Board of Directors to further clarify positions, qualifications, terms of service and vacancies to best represent the spirit and intent of the process and provide further transparency of the function and role of the Board of Directors. 

This recommendation came from the Governing Policy Committee, a subset of Directors, whose charge is to ensure the Governing Policies align with, and supplement the Bylaws, and are consistent and clear as they relate to the governance of the Association. As part of its scope of work, the Committee sought to clarify and align policies related to the election of members of the Board of Directors. Input was sought from legal counsel to review Article X of the Association Bylaws to further clarify positions, qualifications, terms of service, and vacancies to best represent the spirit and intent of the qualifications and election process in simpler terms. The changes primarily clarify, or expound, on existing language related to the election of At Large Directors and Officers, terms of service, vacancies, and eligibility for Board of Director positions found in Article X, Section 10, found on pages 14-19
