EEGS Membership Passes Bylaws Amendment to Expand Board At-Large Member Positions

The EEGS Board of Directors' proposed a motion to revise the Bylaws, which was sent to the Members for passage or rejection.  The amendment was approved and the EEGS Bylaws will be revised accordingly.  The revision will be in effect for the upcoming 2022/23 Board election.

Passage of the Bylaws amendment increases the number of At-Large members to seven (7); consequently, increasing the Board member total to 15.  EEGS Board member Barry Allred, Nominations Committee chair, explained the rational for the motion to revise the Bylaws:  “The bylaws change was to add two additional at-large EEGS board members to address critical staffing needs related to EEGS committees and to support newly developed initiatives, such as the EEGS TAG Webinar Series, the DEI Task Force, and stand-alone virtual or in-person symposiums and workshops."
