Annual Meeting Time: Ensure your League’s Bylaws are Current

During the 2016 LWVUS National Convention, delegates approved amendments to Article III, Section 2 of the bylaws pertaining to Types of Membership. Requirements around voting membership in League were changed. As League policy requires consistency in the first three articles of the bylaws of all Leagues, this memorandum explains how state and local Leagues and ILOs should amend their own bylaws to reflect those of LWVUS. Each League board should review and approve the language. If your League has not yet done this, annual meeting time is a great time to make these updates. Because this is a conforming amendment, it is not necessary to bring this issue to all members.
