OELMA Members Support Changes to Governing Structure: What’s Next?
12/21/2015

With the vote in, OELMA members support the changes to the OELMA governing structure.  For information on the changes visit the screencast prepared by Immediate Past President Susan Yutzey and Trent Roberts – https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByzXWjF0QSHadnl3dG1uN0FtV1E/view

 After the first of the year, members of the Task Force will re-convene to examine the committee structure in more depth with a proposal to follow.  The Task Force will also work with Kate Brunswick to revise the OELMA By-laws to incorporate the changes to the governing board.  The By-laws will be presented to the Board of Directors at the Saturday, February 5, 2016, meeting.  Following the Board’s approval, OELMA members will vote to approve the By-law revisions.  The vote will be conducted online.

 Assuming the timeline can be met by mid-March, the Nominations Committee can begin working on the slate for 2017 with the new governing structure.

 Thank you to all who provided feedback during the Google Hangouts and the Annual Meeting (October 3, 2015).  We will continue to keep you updated on the progress of the Task Force.

 Wishing you a happy holiday season.
