AGPT bylaw changes to be voted on at CSM
The Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy's Bylaws Task Force is submitting proposals to modify and update the Academy Bylaws. The bylaws were updated in February 2014 with our new name and the last comprehensive review occurred in 2006. Any changes to the bylaws require membership to receive at least 30 days' prior notice to voting on the changes. These proposed changes will be discussed and voted upon at the Member Meeting at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at CSM in Indianapolis and require a two-thirds majority vote.
Please view the proposed changes to the bylaws
The changes include the following concepts:
The Academy Bylaws were reviewed for consistency with the new Articles of Incorporation and consistency with current Academy practice.
Removal of a member of the BOD was added based upon the recommendation of an external reviewer of the Academy bylaws and to be consistent with rules for non-profit agencies incorporated Virginia.
Article VII, Section 1: Directors were changed to Directors at Large to avoid confusion with umbrella term "Directors."
A major addition to the Bylaws is a section on voting asynchronously. The language in Article VII, Section 6 is necessary to make us in compliance with Roberts Rules.
Unless designated otherwise, new text is shown in red and deleted text is shown with a strikethrough. Please contact the academy office with any questions. Thank you!
