By-laws Amended

A bylaws change was unanimously approved by the board at the Aug. 25 Planning/Board meeting as follows:

“Article VI, Section 2 as follows: “Section 2 – Slate of Nominees. The nominating committee shall nominate candidates for LCBAS Officers, Committee Chairs, and Directors-at-Large to succeed those whose terms of office expire at the next annual meeting. The Nominating Committee shall publish the slate of nominees at least 10 days prior to the annual May meeting.”

Since the annual meeting may be in a month other than May, this change makes this section of the bylaws consistent with other sections relating to LCBAS elections. Submitted by Debbie Berkowitz, Secretary
