Thanks to all our members who took the time to vote on the proposed changes to the Bylaws. The Bylaws were approved by a margin of 94% in favor and to 6% opposed. The Bylaws will be implemented along with the new Executive Board, scheduled to begin on November 1, 2017.
I also wanted to share with you some comments we received as part of the Bylaws vote. One individual commented on WLG’s non-profit status. WLG is a non-profit entity under its umbrella agreement as an affiliate of ICMA. Other individuals made some meaningful suggestions for amendments to the Bylaws. We appreciate everyone who took the Bylaws update seriously. We will hold on to your comments and consider them as part of a future Bylaws update.
