ACS New York Section
2008 Annual Report
Neil Jespersen, Chair
The Bylaws Committee is commencing a project to update the New York Section
bylaws. There are several issues that must be considered. They
1. How to change the bylaws in order to run elections using electronic
media. Our major costs are the printing and mailing of the ballots and
information materials. This costs about $2500 each year. If the
ACS regulations require mailed material, our savings will be minimal.
Indeed, if we need to hire an outside firm to run the electronic ballot, our
coats may increase. However, we will be asking the Constitution and
Bylaws Committee to give us language that will allow many options.
2. Now that the elevation of student affiliates to student members
seems imminent, this committee will seek advice from C&B as to the appropriate
rewording of our bylaws. We will need to decide what offices students
may hold and/or vote for.
3. We are seeking in our letter to C&B any additional items that
need to be addressed in our current bylaws.
Note that the contact information for the committee members is in our current
Bylaws Committee Chair
