Report of the Special Bylaws Committee
Submitted by Jonathan Franklin
The FCIL-SIS bylaws committee was charged with reviewing the FCIL-SIS bylaws, particularly those sections related to elections.
To that end, we explored the following three issues:
1. Succession when the Chair, Vice-Chair, or Secretary/Treasurer is unable to take their elected position or must step down mid-term
2. The timing of the election due to changes in the newsletter publication cycle and transition to electronic format
3. The ongoing leadership of the FCIL interest groups
We considered numerous possibilities for each of these three areas and hope that the proposed solutions balance the need for certainty with our desire to avoid encumbering the SIS with additional bureaucracy.
This was a true committee effort and we thank Ken for appointing us and supporting our efforts.
