the past few years, NCA has conducted a routine review of our current
constitution and bylaws. This effort was
motivated by a desire to ensure that the organization’s governing documents
continue to facilitate the most effective governance possible in evolving
internal and external environments. In
November 2013, the Executive Committee unanimously brought a proposed new set
of bylaws to the Legislative Assembly for consideration. By a vote exceeding the 2/3 requirement, the
Legislative Assembly adopted the proposed bylaws to replace the current
constitution and bylaws, with the proviso that such adoption is conditional on
a membership vote. If ratified, the
approved bylaws will go into effect on January 1, 2015. Please click here for detailed information about the
revision, including a table that identifies problems with our current governing
documents and corresponding proposed solutions.
