Committees: Bylaws

Purpose of the Committee

The Bylaws Committee continuously reviews the bylaws and makes recommendations as deemed appropriate; receives and reviews proposed bylaw changes or amendments from the membership, commissioners, and/or directors; and makes recommendations as deemed appropriate.

Committee Projects

The Bylaws Committee, under the capable direction of Mickey Metcalf, recently completed a multi-year comprehensive review of the National Bylaws. This included clarification of the rules for regionally elected officers and clearing up inconsistent language. These changes were approved by the ACBSP membership at the annual business meeting in 2013.

The Bylaws Committee has several projects scheduled: encouraging each region to evaluate their Bylaws for compliance with the National Bylaws; revising certain sections that could be written in clearer and more modern language; and adding annotations to explain or clarify complex sections.

Your Pathway to Involvement

The Committee welcomes members from all regions who can write in clear prose and are interested in the internal legal rules that govern the organization. Although it is helpful to have a legal background (several attorneys have served on the Committee), legal experience is not required. We try to avoid language that is overly complex. Members may be asked to participate in sub-committees that meet during scheduled conference calls throughout the year.
