An electronic member vote to approve or reject the proposed bylaws revisions is NOW OPEN on the ABoR Member Portal.
The ABoR Board of Directors has proposed a revision to the ABoR Bylaws, which will be subject to a member vote beginning this Monday, November 12 through Friday, November 16.
The revised bylaws, which were approved by the ABoR Board in October 2018, were subject to a 30-day comment period from October 5 through November 5 in which ABoR members could provide feedback and propose changes the ABoR Engage Portal at ABoR.com/Engage.
What are the proposed revisions?
With the assistance of outside corporate counsel, the Board has undertaken a thorough review and proposed an extensive revision of the ABoR Bylaws. The purpose of these revisions is to:
- Better align the Bylaws with current Texas nonprofit corporation law; and
- Cause the Bylaws to better reflect how ABoR’s membership and management are organized and function.
Where can I access these revisions?
