Vote on Two Proposed Amendments to the Academy Bylaws

October 29, 2018
Academy members are being asked to vote on two proposals to amend the Academy’s bylaws. Adoption of either or both of these proposals will require a two-thirds majority of members voting. The ballot and supporting materials are being sent via email to all members of the Academy who were members as of Oct. 22, or for those members without email or who have opted out of receiving email, by paper ballot. Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. EST on Nov. 9, 2018. In Academy President Steve Alpert’s letter to members, he urged members that “to build on the progress we’ve made to date and to position the Academy for even greater achievements in the future, it is important that your voice be heard, and I ask that you join me in voting YES on proposal No. 1 and NO on proposal No. 2.” Read his letter here. The two proposed amendments are explained in detail here.
