A message to the our AER Board of Directors
The NCAER Board respectively requests the AER Board encourage open and continued communication among all divisions and members without censorship on all associated list-serve and other forms of communication as it relates to the O&M Division and any related matters.
A Note to NC AER chapter members:
Our last bylaw revision was in 1999. In reviewing the bylaws, it’s obvious that we need to update our bylaws to match current procedures and to deal with some issues that are unclear in the bylaws.
However, our current bylaws are unclear about how a mail ballot is to be held, although it's allowed. The Board is proceeding in this manner. These draft revisions are being sent to all members and a link to the copy is posted below this paragraph. Your comments and questions should be sent to Dennis Thurman at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are significant questions or changes, another revision will be published before voting. After this opportunity for revision, a ballot will be sent to each member. If there are no objections to this procedure, this is how the Board will proceed with these amendments. Please, look at the NCAER Bylaws document attached to the email sent to you or it is also located on the NCAER website. It is a “marked-up” copy of the current bylaws, then a copy with all of the proposed changes accepted (what the bylaws will say if there are no further changes). As noted above, please send comments and questions by September 20, 2013.
