The GEO Bylaws Committee has recommended two proposals to the membership for review and comment. This posting and a membership email sent out today, Friday March 16, 2012, serve as notice under the GEO Bylaws, Article 16, that the Bylaws Committee intends to bring these amendments before the April 9, 2012 GEO Membership Meeting for an up or down vote.
There will be a ten day comment period, during which we encourage members to email the Bylaws Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with their comments and concerns. After this comment period, we will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 from 4 to 5pm for additional discussion. The bylaws committee will then take members’ comments and concerns into account before submitting final language to the membership for an up or down vote at the April 9, 2012 GEO Membership Meeting. We will also work with the elections committee, leadership, and staff to provide an opportunity for members to vote outside the Membership Meeting. Those polling times and locations will be announced with the final language.
