Be prepared!

Seriously, I enjoy attending the Annual Business Meeting every year at the Midwest Chapter’s conference. At last year’s conference in Indianapolis, I had the privilege of presiding at the meeting. What is there to look forward to? Of course, there is delicious food and fabulous table companions. And the winners of our many chapter awards are announced.

This year we will have some important business to conduct. We will be voting to ratify significantly amended chapter bylaws. This revision is necessary to bring the bylaws in harmony with the MLA Model Bylaws. These new bylaws are more succinct, which will give the chapter more flexibility in conducting chapter business.

So before you attend the Annual Business Meeting, read all about the bylaws revisions on this page of the chapter website. Then link through to the two documents provided by the Bylaws Special Committee. These show the complete text of the proposed bylaws that will be voted upon and, for comparative purposes, a version of the current bylaws with the edits and changes noted.

Hope to see you at lunch on Monday, October 8th!
