Proposed SFA Bylaw Revisions
July 2016

The SFA Board offers the following proposed bylaw revisions to SFA members in good standing for consideration. The purpose of these revisions is to offer greater flexibility to the SFA Board with respect to its operations.

Per procedure, bylaws may be amended by the membership from time to time. Any proposed amendment must be signed by three members in good standing and submitted to the President and the Board at least ten days prior to the ballot on which the amendment is considered. The proposed amendment must be presented to the membership not less than ten days prior to the vote of the membership. Any votes of the membership on an amendment to the bylaws may be conducted via any lawful means, including electronically. A majority of the votes cast shall be required to approve the amendment.

Three SFA members in good standing have signed and submitted these bylaw changes to the SFA Board, and the Board has approved them for the ballot. SFA members should now read and consider these bylaw revisions and vote to approve or disapprove them ten days from now, on the August 5 SFA annual election ballot.
