Notice of Illinois Chapter of APCO International Bylaw modifications
Review period: September 21st – October 24th, 2021
During the recently held APCO 2021 Conference the APCO International membership adopted a change to the Bylaws regarding the qualifications of candidates for the office of Chapter Secretary and Treasurer. The modification added the requirement that those members serving as a Chapter Secretary or Treasurer must be voting members. The Illinois APCO Executive Board approved a modification to our Bylaws to conform with this updated qualification.
The modifications are being made in the Illinois APCO Bylaws:
- Section 6.6 Qualifications, Subsection (a) add the words "APCO International" prior to "membership policy".
- Add subsection (g) Candidates for Chapter President, First Vice-President, Second Vice- President, Treasurer, Secretary and Executive Council shall be voting-eligible members.
These modifications were approved by the Illinois APCO Executive Board at their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, September 16th, 2021. The modification will be presented for approval at the General Membership meeting on Sunday, October 24th, 2021.
