    The Chapter leadership has just completed the 3yr review of the Bylaws to

    ensure we remain current and adapt as changes are needed.

    Key changes to be aware of:

    • Addition of a 12th Board Member role: Vice President of Volunteers
    • The language was updated to match how the board works today using electronic means like our PMI email, Newsletter, and website not by mail.
    • Corrected the quorum required for the board to vote a change. Bylaws reflected a quorum was set at 3 members. Bylaws changed to reflect half the board required for a vote.
